The Man Who Wants Second Place

Malcolm, Donald
July 1956
New Republic;7/30/56, Vol. 135 Issue 5, p13
This article focuses on the candidature of U.S. Senator John F. Kennedy for the post of U.S. Vice President. The author says that it is not actually bad form to wish to be Vice President of the U.S., but it might as well be. To be sure, Senator Kennedy is not actually a candle date for the nomination-he has told people so himself, but if "running" is defined as a series of rapid strides in the direction of a desired goal, then lie is unmistakably running. And this vote will be cast solely on the basis of whether Senator Kennedy will increase the appeal of the ticket.
