Discipline, Please

December 1981
National Review;12/25/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 25, p1525
The article comments on the public statement made by U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Clark in London, England in 1981, indicating that the American public favor a unified Ireland. The unification of Ireland may be desirable, undesirable, or both. However, such remark made by Clark was out of order. The issue being tackled is one of political professionalism. High public officials are not supposed to conduct public seminars. But instead, they must exercise professional judgment. They simply are not functioning as professionals when they cause needless political damage.
