ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the presidential elections in the U.S. The poll-takers and the commentators may be right when they report that the public pulse has a lazy and indifferent beat two weeks before the election, that political interest is low and apathy high. The Administration's determination to see-no-evil, bear-no evil rein forces public apathy. The lag between reality and public appreciation of its significance would not be so serious were the American people, like those of Great Britain able to change executive leadership when the evidence of the government's failure has turned the country against it. This election is not a horse race, a prize fight or a tug of war between ins and outs. It's an opportunity that will not come again to make a "new beginning" in the conduct of foreign affairs by electing Adlai Stevenson.
