Truman’s ideas still valid

SHARE Truman’s ideas still valid

I have been reading "Truman" by David McCullough. It is ranked as one of the most accurate books about Harry S. Truman written. I am impressed with the trouble Truman went to to avoid any appearances of evil. He would avoid any situation that would implicate him with women other than his wife. He also felt that all men should do the same. Once while he was presiding judge in Missouri, he discovered that one of the judges he appointed was not the most upstanding person, and Truman was quoted as saying: "He'd use his office for his own enrichment, he's not true to his wife and a man not honorable in his marital relations is not usually honorable in any other." I hope we can remember this come election day.
