If you read anything about him. You would know he didn't have that much interest in being a success in his home town. He was elected in a very different time. There were no cellphone,updated news and television. The way things were done was by territorial leaders being able to guarantee votes. He was very taken back in certain events like Roosevelt death a president that hardly talked with him. His decisions came from the personal background,officer who serve in combat WW1,card player for a number of years. Someone who was in love with his wife. To make a decisive decision like he did in 1945. Told allot about responsibilities people have in certain times of their life.
