Additional Info

It's during prohibition, FDR and Eleanor are still fairly young, stuck in Georgia at a Polio clinic and getting drunk on illegal moonshine. As they imbibe, Eleanor tries to convince FDR to run for office. The more drunk they get, the more their comments become absurd and anachronistic, the author's voice entering the text making for a very silly romp.
