# He was a better president probably of all time.

# FDR served 3 terms as president-- more than any other US president-- so the conditional clause in the question ('if...died') in the question is really unnecessary to judge the merits of Roosevelt's presidency.

Requires an answer that for me, must be answered in the first person. I liked Franklin Roosevelt and like a lot of US Citizens I felt that I knew him because of the Fire Side Chats. I believe I liked Harry Truman because He always took responsibility for his actions. He was a stand-up kind of a guy and I liked his slogan of The Buck Stops Here. I have lived under the administration of twelve Presidents, and tolerated all of them since Truman, some were better then others, a rare few have dissapointed me, and some showed glimmers of greatness. I always vote, and I haven't always picked the winner.

The Square Deal was better than any other president's program would be a statement about President Theodore Roosevelt's square deal that is an opinion rather than a fact. Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th U.S. President.

Because President Truman, nor anyone else knew what to call a war in which ALL WEAPONS could "not be used" to win it, such as the existing atomic bomb; for the lack of a better word, Truman chose Police Action. The words "LIMITED WAR" were also used; which was more correct...as the Korean War was America's first limited war (limited to the use of NON-Nuclear Weapons). A police action is actually what is occurring in Iraq; an action against insurgents and terrorists to restore law, order and stability to the nation of Iraq. But again, President Truman and all others at the time, never experienced atomic warfare, limited war, nor even communists. All they knew was "Declared" and "Total Wars", such as World War's One and Two. Both of which President Truman experienced; once as a Captain of artillery in WW1, and once as Vice President of the US under President F. D. Roosevelt.

Theodore Roosevelt was elected as a Republican President in 2004. In 2012, he formed his own Progressive Party, better known as the Bull-Moose Party and ran again.
