ABSTRACT
The article focuses on U.S. Presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson and his career in politics. He believed that political conditions favored an appeal to reason in 1956, and that the sandbank of his Presidential candidacy would grow. Instead, it was partially washed away in Minnesota as he had a crushing defeat in the elections. To Stevenson, appealing to reason in politics meant treating the voters as his equals and speaking to them primarily in terms of the national interest. It was just this integrity and restraint that made Stevenson unique among the Presidential candidates. But his failure in Minnesota lay in communication and he should have revised his campaign techniques.
