THE PRESIDENT’S DESTINY
Maybe it was luck, maybe it was fate, but Franklin Roosevelt probably should have died years before he did. He cheated death just long enough to finish his job. There were four events in the life of FDR that could have easily ended it, but didn’t.
Upon arriving at Palmer’s home, he urged Roosevelt to come in for a nightcap in his library. But Franklin replied that he had an early appointment the next morning and begged off. Palmer insisted but the invitation was still politely declined. Seconds after Franklin drove off a bomb ripped through Palmer’s library. It had been planted by an anarchist. If the two men had been having that drink, they both would have died.
