BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ — In this presidential election year, a vice-president pick appears to be more important than it has ever been before. Yet, author and researcher Harry S. Goldsmith, M.D., reveals a time in our history where a vice-president nomination seriously impacted our country and has ramifications even today.

A recently discovered secret memo now shows that Franklin D. Roosevelt was aware of his deteriorating physical condition when he decided to run for a fourth term. He knew that Harry Truman, the vice-president selected, quite likely would be promoted to the highest office in the land, if the doctors' warnings were right. But what if voters knew how serious FDR's health was? Would they have been comfortable with Truman taking over the presidency?

It was 1963 when Dr. Goldsmith attended a lecture given by Dr. George T. Pack, where Dr. Pack mentioned that FDR had been advised not to run for another term due to ill health. It was quite certain that if elected he would not live long enough to carry out his duties. So began Dr. Goldsmith's years of investigating for proof that FDR handed over the presidency by hiding the seriousness of his health. Dr. Goldsmith's discoveries are thought-provoking, giving voters something to consider when looking more closely at the vice-president nominee.
