But I expect the race to be much closer than the Wilkie campaign. I can not look forward with much optimism with Roosevelts leadership thru the next four years. During that time we will need a leader with some experience and grasp of economics and less self serving personality that he has indicated over the past twelve years. I wonder if Dewey has it, but at least he has shown himself a more able leader
