45. Wish he had lived a little longer. But imagine if he had never been president

during that critical time in our history? Would anyone else have had the guts to do for the working class and the elderly, what he did. Perhaps, but considering all the opposition he had to deal with, I know the latest talking point is that FDR 'had a supportive Dem majority so everything was easy for him', not to mention the War, I can't think of anyone who would have had the energy and strength to just get done what he did.
