Franklin Delano Roosevelt (also known as "FDR") was the 32nd President of the United States of America, and is regarded by historians and the public alike as one of the three best presidents (along with Abraham Lincoln and George Washington), due to his leadership through both the Great Depression and World War II. Stricken by an illness that paralyzed him from the waist down, the vastly different media landscape of his time meant he was able to craft a public image that kept this illness secret, despite it being common knowledge today. Also known for his charismatic speeches, canine companion Fala, and fireside chats. Oh, and throwing Japanese folk on his homeland into internment camps after Pearl Harbor. He was elected four times, a first for a US president and a feat unable to be replicated by future ones, due to a subsequent constitutional amendment forcing term limits on US presidents.

FDR is also on the dime, and usually appears this way in animutations.
