March 1956
New Republic;3/5/56, Vol. 134 Issue 10, p3
This article discusses various issues related to the candidature of Dwight David Eisenhower , in relation to his health, for a second term of the U.S. Presidency. Rarely in the U.S. history has the burden of the Presidency been more oppressive than it is today. And yet it seems probable that Eisenhower will permit his Republican party to draft him for a second term. If he continues in office, Eisenhower must be shielded from perplexing problems and unwelcome news. Eisenhower could not today meet the physical standard that the U.S. army regulations prescribe for commissioned officers "regardless of branch of service or grade." The Presidential burden is heavier by far than that which any officer must bear.
