Why Did He Do It?

Johnson, Gerald W.
March 1956
New Republic;3/12/56, Vol. 134 Issue 11, p23
The article focuses on Dwight D. Eisenhower. The fact that he has decided to be a candidate again is conclusive proof that he is not the man that many of his admirers thought he was. The effect on the President is not the only, and perhaps not the primary, consideration in such a case; the effect upon his subordinates is also very important. The popularity of the President is enormous; but for that popularity to be employed to obliterate the constitutional separation of powers would be a tragic irony indeed.
