I liked FDR until I learned he was a racist and refused to shake Jesse Owens hand. Elanor was the better heart in that household and she shook his hand instead.
I'm not surprised. That was extremely common at that point. It's true that Eleanor was the better leader who could make anyone comfortable. FDR got bored at dinners and told guests "I killed my mother yesterday" to see who paid attention.
