33. If she could convince me she was the most capable.
Why would I restrict my choices because of some weird quirk of fate that might have made the most qualified candidate related to a previous President?

Would she have beaten Harry Truman in the primary? All polls showed that he was going to lose, but somehow beat Dewey. Would Eleanor beaten him? Could she have kept the Dixiecrats from splitting? No, and No.


If Eleanor were running today? I doubt I would pick her over Clinton. There has been a lot of water under the bridge.
