July 1955
New Republic;7/4/55, Vol. 133 Issue 1, p2
The article talks about presidential election in the U.S. It is felt that Adlai Stevenson's candidacy will give a strong fight to Dwight D. Eisenhower of conservative party. But, Stevenson's chances of winning are not too strong. One thing is certain, Stevenson can't win by pussyfooting. In an uphill fight the challenger must be bold. No republican can win without Democratic votes, and in vote after vote in the United States since 1952 the Democrats have been getting stronger. It is Stevenson's job, if he gets the nomination, to push that liberal movement ahead.
