FDR was elected to 4 terms. After he died during his fourth term, the Congress passed a law. The President of the USA can serve no more than 2 full terms as President (if he/she is Vice President to a President that dies in office, then they can serve the remaining term as President and serve an additional two terms in office). Therefore President Harry Truman could serve two full terms as President in addition to the term he finished up for FDR. (HST only ran for more term). LBJ could serve as two full terms plus the term he was Vice President for JFK. LBJ only served one full term as President. He did not run again in 1968.
