Two Eisenhowers?

Johnson, Gerald W.
March 1956
New Republic;3/26/56, Vol. 134 Issue 13, p16
The article presents information on the issue of the health of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower in the general elections. Political parties do not make the issue in any campaign; they merely seize upon the issues that seem to be of most interest to the people, and it is not humanly possible to prevent their doing that. On their part the people are amply justified in taking an interest in anything whatsoever that is likely to have a profound effect upon the political history of the country. In a democracy they are more than justified, they are obligated to do so.
