ABSTRACT
The article presents comments of various political scientists and practical politicians on an article "How Adlai Stevenson Can Lead the Democrats," by Frederid W. Collins, Washington correspondent of providence journal. According to Gerald W. Johnson, collins' argument in brief is that Stevenson, Governor of Illinois, by going briskly to work as the actual, not merely the titular leader of the Democratic Party, very soon would become the actual leader. In so doing he would set a precedent certain to be followed; and the outcome might be to give us at all times an opposition with an accredited spokesman who could formulate a coherent policy, to the great improvement of public affairs. According to Paul T. David, director of Governmental Studies for the Brookings Institution," the novel and possibly constructive feature in Collins' proposal is the suggestion that, without awaiting an invitation that may never come, Adlai Stevenson simply move to Washington and start operating.
