If it’s Tuesday, it’s Take Five day, where we get to know a Member of Congress better through five fun questions. This week, Rep. James Langevin (D-R.I.) talks about his admiration for President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his days as a Boy Scout. Q: If you could meet any historical figure, who would it be? A: I would want to meet FDR. He’s one of my great heroes and led the nation in one of the most challenging times in U.S. history. And I would like to go and have a conversation with him [and] ask him many questions [about] what gave him his courage and determination during challenging times.

Q: If you could meet any historical figure, who would it be?
