Herter for Nixon

July 1956
New Republic;7/30/56, Vol. 135 Issue 5, p4
This article discusses the political status of the politician Harold Stassen. When U.S. Vice President Richard Nixon ran for his first Congressional term in 1946, the newspaper Los Angeles Times was not entirely certain where to place the newcomer on the political spectrum. For while Stassen's luster as leader of the GOP progressivism of 1946 has grown dim, his foreign policy counsels in the U.S. Government have clearly been those of one who must be classified even today as a GOP liberal leader. But Stassen's action will primarily serve the cause of the progressive internationalist ideals he symbolized in the hopeful early years of his political career.
