    FILE - In this Aug. 18, 1956 black-and-white file photo, former President Harry Truman shakes hands with Sen. Estes Kefauver, D-Tenn., and stands arm in arm with Adlai Stevenson at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Long gone are the passionate debates. Long gone is the suspense about who will emerge as the party's presidential nominee. Political conventions now are carefully scripted pep rallies aimed at a national TV audience. Not since the 1970s, in fact, has the nation had a major-party national convention begin with the nominee in doubt. Americans already know how the story will end at this year's Republican and Democratic national gatherings. So have modern-day conventions become irrelevant? (AP Photo, File)

    FILE - In this Sept. 1, 1945, file photo President Harry Truman broadcasts his message on the formal surrender of Japan from the White House in Washington. Truman called on Congress in 1945 to create a national insurance program for those who pay voluntary fees, saying medical care is a right of all Americans. The American Medical Association denounces the idea as "socialized medicine." Truman tries for years but can't get it passed. (AP Photo/File)

This is the piano Truman used to play in the White House and was presented to him as a gift by Nixon. Through the years, commanders-in-chief have turned musicians-in-chief, with varying results.
