58. If you've read up on the Depression, you know that FDR pushed through
an incredible amount of legislation in his first year. It's no exaggeration to say that he transformed America.

I don't think it's a coincidence that he first won the presidency in an election in which 19% of the vote went to parties that were to the left of him (LaFollette's Progressives, Socialists, Communists).
