For those that don't know why Teddy Roosevelt is on Mt. Rushmore, it's because he was President at the time. He's the one that decided we should save all our Naional Parks, so we could keep things like Mt. Rushmore. As far as picking one more, if that would be possible, I m torn between Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Harry S Truman, because they were so close together, and worked on the same problem--WWII . Truman had to decide to drop the bombs and kill all those innocent people, which weighed heavily on his mind. So maybe I'll give Truman the edge for ending the war. (But, then again FDR got us out of the depression.) Oh, woe is me -- decisions, decisions!!!
