ABSTRACT
The article presents an assessment of Adlai E. Stevenson's qualifications for the U.S. Presidency. Of all the riddles that make up American politics, the greatest today is Adlai Stevenson. He is a cautious man with great appeal in the expansive West; a spokesman for civil rights whom the South accepts as a friend; a conservative among Democrats who is the first choice of the trade unionists; the favorite of professional politicians who dislikes the game of politics. Stevenson is complicated, aloof and physically unimposing; in no sense the traditional image of the successful politician. And yet he commands more loyalty and devotion than any man in political life save one.
