    Totally informative, interesting, and wonderfully done. But Ken Burns always does his series with expertise.

    I love Ken Burns' work. I have really enjoy this on the Roosevelt's. FDR went from being a selfish young fop, to someone I could really respect. I've always respected Eleonore.
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."

    Yes, both FDR and Eleanor were much better looking when they got married- she did not age well. Teeth braces would have helped her a lot. But, I noticed in a very late picture of her that it looked like she may have had false teeth and she looked much better. FDR was surely a great president but a bad husband.
