On this day in 1944, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected to fourth term. He remains the only president to serve more than two terms and in fact, will be the only one to do so. In 1951, the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution was passed, which limits a president's tenure in office to two terms of four years each.
On this day in 1916, Jeannette Rankin of Montana, was the first woman ever elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.
And on this day in 1991, basketball superstar Earvin “Magic” Johnson announced that he was HIV positive.
Happy birthday to Billy Graham (1918); Keith Lockhart (1959); and Joni Mitchell (1943).
