    When he was accused of having black ancestors, his response was "as far as I know it's not true, but, if it were, that would be OK as long as they were good people."  That was quite a bold thing to say in 1920.  

    A decade and a half later, FDR would give the same answer when he was accused of having Jewish ancestors.

    "We have always known that heedless self-interest was bad morals, now we know that it is bad economics." Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jan. 20, 1937
