Who was the first Socially Progressive Democratic President? Republican President?
Unless you really know your history, this is not necessarily an easy question.
Of course, socially progressive has to be relative to the time and place of the President considered, I think that the first GOP president Abe Lincoln, definitely qualified as socially progressive.
Andrew Jackson, relative to the period in which he lived, could be considered 'socially progressive" for the Democrats
If you mean the parties as currently constituted, the first socially progressive Democratic President would probably be Woodrow Wilson; the first Republican would be Theodore Roosevelt.
I could make a case for Thomas Jefferson as the answer to both since his party was the Republican party (not to be confused with present day Republican) and the forerunner of the present day Democratic Party. He was liberal on many, if not all, issues.
