Historian Stanley Weintraub recounts Franklin D. Roosevelt’s last presidential campaign in 1944, which secured his fourth term. The author recalls that President Roosevelt was unsure that his health would allow him to continue to serve the country. He suffered from polio that he hid from the populace. Mr. Weintraub examines the issues that marked the war-time election, from the Democrats' choice of Harry Truman as vice president to the concerns of the Republican Party and their ticket of New York Governor Thomas Dewey and his running mate, Ohio Governor John Bricker. Professor Weintraub responded to questions from members of the audience at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. close
