Ack! Many Times!

     I read this a long time ago and misread it.  Not sure how it happened, but I remember reading that FDR was the most liberal, not the most conservative, of all Democratic Party candidates since his day.  In at least a dozen places I'd said that FDR and Reagan were both the most extreme candidates, and therefore, even if you believed Obama was an ultra-liberal, maybe that wasn't so bad.  Reagan was the most conservative President since FDR.  Obama's short record in the U.S. Senate puts him to the right of FDR.  Still, there is a very large gap between FDR and Eisenhower.  There has not been a centrist U.S. President since (at the very least) FDR.

     I apologize!
