There’s no real need to explain the career of the nation’s 2nd greatest president and his remarkable wife. Two truly great Americans. He was significantly more flawed as a person and as a thinker than she, but his leadership in the Great Depression was totally unprecedented, especially considering its not like the Democratic Party of 1932 was filled to the brim with liberals. He was about the most left possible candidate they could have reasonably nominated and then he fully embraced the liberal wing after he took office. Truly remarkable.

The Roosevelts are buried at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt National Historic Site, Hyde Park, New York.
