Once Upon A Time
The four greatest presidents of our last, very fateful century were the two cousins, Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Harry Truman. In all instances a combination of foreign and domestic events combined to challenge their leadership and they and the country prevailed. During their tenure in the White House the policies they instituted to dealt with those events subtly or materially changed the direction of the country and the outlook of the people in a positive way. We only have to look backward with the accumulated wisdom of hindsight to see how far the current President is from the ideal.
