Primary Question

Johnson, Gerald W.
June 1956
New Republic;6/18/56, Vol. 134 Issue 25, p12
The article focuses on the certain remarks made by intellectual Eric Savareid on the Presidential primary. The article quotes reason due to which political leaders of all parties simply will not be quoted as opposing the presidential primary. Opposition to the primary is equated with bossism in the popular mythology of politics, and no politician can afford to admit that he is the boss. The demonstration is difficult because it calls for realistic thinking in a field from which realism is conspicuously absent, that of political terminology. The author further comments on political situation in the United States, which is partly representative and partly absolute.
