11. He tried, but failed
at the time it was seen as a major leadership failure. FDR weathered the storm and was reelected, that is true, but that had a lot to do with the fact that a badly fractured Repug party put up a VERY weak candidate (Wendell Willkie) in opposition to him in 1940.

And in 1944, there was no WAY we were electing Dewey in the middle of a war.
