Health Issue - 1824

Johnson, Gerald W.
July 1956
New Republic;7/23/56, Vol. 135 Issue 4, p9
This article focuses on U.S. Presidential candidate Dwight D. Eisenhower. Eisenhower certainly believes that he is physically fit to stand another campaign and another term of office. Perhaps he believes that he is practically as good, physically, as he was when he entered the White House. People know about his coronary occlusion especially one that has been followed by major abdominal surgery. By November every realistic voter will realize that the odds are that a vote for Eisenhower is in, reality a vote, for the man on the tail of the ticket. No rational human being can hold Eisenhower to blame for his illness, or think the worse of him for his misfortunes. But on the other hand, neither are the voters responsible for the illness, while they are responsible for the man they put in the White House.
