5. He had polio and hid being crippled

He didn't really have it that great. Plus he even opened the hot springs on his property to children suffering from the disease. He may have been an east coast elite, but I think that his experience with the disease connected him more to the common man. Herbert Hoover was the one who said "A dollar a day is good enough for any man", and I doubt he was living on a dollar a day himself. At least Roosevelt was pragmatic.
