ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of sudden removal of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower from the campaign picture of next year on the U.S. politics. It has thrown upon the Republican strategists a burden that may break their collective back as a responsible political party. They are facing the ancient Israelites' problem of making bricks without straw which, in the old days, precipitated an exodus and may do so again. Normally, an American political party may hope to make a successful appeal to the country on any one of three issues--its own good record, its opponents' bad record, or an irresistible candidate.
