March 1952
New Republic;3/17/52, Vol. 126 Issue 11, p9
The article focuses on tour of the U.S. by politician Robert A. Taft, as a part of his election campaign for the Republican Party. The speeches of Taft are characterized by metaphors, with no humor and no purple passages. Taft's chief charm is the paradox of being modest while being quite certain that he is right. He is approachable and genial. He is not working for himself, but for a cause. He is an evangelist of Republican fundamentalism, setting high standards for himself and others according to his own rules.
