Subject: RE: BS: Anybody watching 'The Roosevelts' on PBS
I've been following it. It's all history to me. I was born not quite 10 uears after FDR died. My parents were both Republicans. Mom took time off after college to work against his third term.

But the whole thing is fascinating. A lot of otherwise fine women were not great mothers. A few great mothers, were not, otherwise, good people. Eleanor Roosevelt was an amazing woman for a few thousand reasons.
