November 1954
New Republic;11/15/54, Vol. 131 Issue 20, p2
The article reports incidents related to U.S. Politics. Democrats have come some way at mid term, especially at the grass roots and local level, and in the capture of governorships. But for their hopes' of 1956 the election demonstrated once more that their chief problem is U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower. Another post-election thought is the low evolutionary stage of political parties, manifested by hacks and non-entities put in nomination. Public life in America is undermined by the absence of disciplined, coherent, intelligent parties.
