After the untimely death of FDR, Truman reluctantly took over the role of the president. From the beginning many people questioned Truman's abilities. With the controversy of the Atomic Bomb and the victory in World War II, people still felt he wasn't fit for the job (even after his re-election). One famous picture in American History shows Truman holding up a newspaper after his re-election saying "Dewey Defeats Truman."
