"Give-em-Hell Harriman"

Mazo, Earl
May 1956
New Republic;5/28/56, Vol. 134 Issue 22, p7
This article reports that Governor Averell Harriman had endured two full days of campaigning for the Democratic nomination for President in the U.S. He was midway in a third when a youngster at Washington State College asked him, flatly, to explain a contradiction. There were two explanations aboard the chartered Harriman campaign plane for the Governor's use of the word inactive. One was that Governor Harriman intends to change the meaning of the word. He plans to be so fiercely active as the Democratic candidate when he wins the nomination that his 16-hour-a-day, 2,567-mile electioneering swing through the West from May 13 to May 17 would be considered inactive by comparison.
