Uncle Walter was a Liberal???

Heck, I had no idea! I had no sense of what Walter Cronkite's political leanings were at all.
And now we learn, after his death at 92, that he was a Adlai Stevenson-Democrat who nonethe less liked Ike!
My late father who adored Walter Cronkite, who thought that none of the astronauts could blast off or return without him and daddy for whom FDR was a four letter word...would be shocked to learn that his beloved Walter Cronkite wasn't on his Wendell-Wilkie-Ike-Nixon-Reagan page.
