An interesting factoid: While getting briefed at a union office before canvassing last Saturday in Hyde Park, NY, it was mentioned by one of the organizers that FDR never electorally carried this relatively small town – where he and Eleanor spent a good deal of time and where his presidential library is today – at the lower end of the Hudson Valley.

Apparently, his rhetoric and policies didn’t sit well at the time with the good citizens of this community. I think that is changing.
