Once In A Million Years

A small note from history: an event occurred sixty years ago today that never occurred before, has never occurred since, and will never occur again without major change in the structure of United States government.

Sixty years ago today, FDR was sworn in for his fourth term as President. No other President in our nations history has ever served three terms in office, not to mention four.

Under the current term limit of ten years for President -- implemented by Roosevelt -- a Vice President could conceivably ascend to the Presidency in the second half of a term, then win reelection twice on his own resulting in three Inaugural ceremonies, but no one will ever again take the Presidential oath of office four times. It's the unbreakable record of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
