I wouldn't have voted for King Roosevelt for any of his terms, nor Eleanor - they were simply the depression-era Clintons. Winston Churchill was one of the greatest statesmen the world has ever known and a wit as well. Sleeping until noon isn't the worst thing you can do. Everything you say about Hitler just shows how dangerous these proselytizing health freaks can be. I already knew the one about Beethoven but I thought he was only her fifth or sixth child. She did have one or two stillborn or die shortly after birth, so perhaps I miscounted.
