April 1952
New Republic;4/7/53, Vol. 126 Issue 14, p5
This article focuses on the ensuing presidential elections in the United States. The withdrawal of Harry S. Truman from the 1952 election race increases the chances of the Democratic party to win. In Governor Adlai Stevenson and Senator Estes Kefauver, the Democratic Party has two men fully acceptable as liberal standard bearers. Both of them represent the philosophy of the New Deal and the Fair Deal and either is capable of conducting a campaign which would clarify the basic issues between the major parties. Truman has acted in the best interests of his party and his own place in history in stepping aside for new leadership.
