gerald w. Johnson: The Superficial Aspect

April 1954
New Republic;4/12/54, Vol. 130 Issue 15, p7
This article focuses on political matters in the U.S. Until recently there has seemed to be little point in taking sides in the debate over whether U.S. politician Adlai Stevenson is or isn't running for U.S. presidency. It is not known for sure whether he will be able to beat U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956. Stevenson is not the right kind of candidate for tranquil times. The point is that when all is going well a President may only strut and gurgle generalities and still get by; but when the situation is appalling he must face reality.
