White House Watch: Hanging in There

Osborne, John
September 1979
New Republic;9/29/79, Vol. 181 Issue 13, p6
This article comments on the confidence showed by supporters and followers of U.S. President Jimmy Carter. When Treasury Secretary William G. Miller was asked about the president's fall in the polls and in the public perception, he never answered but attributed Carter's low standing to the Vietnam and Watergate experiences. Similar move was made by domestic adviser Stuart Eizenstat. Implications of the resignation of Gerald Rafshoon as the president's assistant for communications for Carter's presidency are discussed.
