Best Answer

The first President to have an extraordinary first 100 days of his term was Franklin D. Roosevelt. With the combination of his party controlling Congress, momentum from his campaign, and a public outcry for action, Congress passed all the legislation he proposed in his first 100 days. Included in this legislation was his New Deal, which was intended to help the economy recover from the great depression. Due to his incredible success in passing legislation and reviving the economy, his first 100 days is used as a benchmark for comparing the effectiveness of new Presidents.

According to the 20th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, newly elected U.S. Presidents and Vice Presidents get sworn in on the 20th of January at noon. Eastern Standard Time, the time zone that includes Washington, D.C. in January, is assumed but not specified. 20 January is 17 days after the terms of U.S. Representatives and U.S. Senators begin and 14 days after the official counting of the electoral votes in front of a joint session of Congress. Until 1933, when the 20th Amendment was ratified, Presidents, Vice Presidents, Representatives and Senators all began their terms on the 4th of March. When the U.S. presidency is vacated due to death, resignation or removal from office, the presidential oath of office is administered to the U.S. Vice President as soon as possible.
