Frustrated by politics of obstruction and deference when our nation needs serious democratic leadership and action – and with our respective books on America both coming out on April 8th, we decided to consider the legacy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, our nation’s longest serving president, indeed, the greatest president of the Twentieth Century.  And after much deliberation, we offer here the Top Ten Reasons FDR was Hot.

Enjoy and stay strong – We have nothing to fear but fear itself!

2) FDR was hot because he always walked arm-in-arm – and even when he was sitting down he was standing up for America.
