The Waiting Game

January 1956
New Republic;1/16/56, Vol. 134 Issue 3, p7
The article focuses on the election campaign of Governor Adlai E. Stevenson for the 35th President of the U.S. One of the magazines, "The Reporter," has claimed its reluctance in considering Stevenson as the right man for 1956 elections. There are many reasons for this indecisiveness like some politicians are waiting until they can get the highest return for their support. In proving his mettle, Stevenson must first refrain from doing the things that helped elect U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952.
