Moynihan and Javits: The Pursuit of the Principle

Buckley Jr., Wm. F.
October 1976
National Review;10/29/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 41, p1198
The article comments on current political issues in the U.S. as of October 1976. It criticizes Democratic senatorial candidate for New York Daniel Patrick Moynihan for attacking his opponent Senator James Buckley (R-N.Y.). It also criticizes Senator Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.) for holding a grudge against Buckley. It argues that it was inappropriate for a summa cum laude graduate of Princeton University like Hodding Carter III to suggest that former U.S. President Richard Nixon stands alone in covering up illegal activities. It comments on the suggestion of James Jackson Kilpatrick and the editorial board of "The New York Times" that the press should stop asking presidential candidates--U.S. President Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter--about their views on abortion.
