This is a power draft for the Red Party. Blue Party players wishing to secure NY over the Red Party should also be happy about this draft. JFK's father is in this draft as well.

Harry Hopkins was FDR's preferred successor but he got fatally ill by 1944. Hopkins would have been even more progressive than FDR, but not as much as Henry A Wallace, who ended up being FDR's preferred successor following Hopkin's decline. FDR was forced to give up on Wallace and accept Truman. I don't think FDR expected to die when he did, despite his ill health, otherwise I think he would have engaged Truman more in hopes that Truman would carry his legacy of New Deal reform and the proposed 2nd Bill of Rights. FDR, the optimist, probably thought he'd live another 10 years.
