New Republic;8/4/52, Vol. 127 Issue 5, p6
The article discusses about a Democrat convention, held at Chicago, after a gap of 20 years. The 10 day convention discussed various socio-political issues. In this convention, although power of former U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was absent, power of U.S. President, Harry S. Truman was also restrained and divided. There were no cohesive blocs in the convention. Ranging from extreme left to right, there were five main groups as the convention met. Among the main issues were candidacy of former U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union, Averell Harriman, who was backed by labor and minority leaders and some White House advisors.
