This is excellent! (Eisenhower was president when I was born). I'd love for my brother [and husband] to read this, but they are so pro-Bush and anti-ME these days, at least in the political arena, that I'm sure they'd bot come up with some ugly reason that even THIS is "drivel". Sigh.

Ok, here is what I have to say about this. To the best of my knowledge "Little Ike" is getting by on his name and not any special qualifications to assess and judge the candidates.

Now it could be that I am wrong here, but I don't see anything special about his POV. It doesn't add anything to the discussion.

As it is about 50 years or so since his father's administration I am not surprised that he would see differences in the party.

During his father's day Blacks were still fighting for civil rights and there were quotas on Jews being accepted to schools. In short, the 50's were not some happy-go-lucky time for many people.

P.S. Don't for McCarthy and his witch hunt. So Eisenhower is entitled to his opinion just like anyone else is. The difference is that most of us could not get our opinion piece published as easily as he did.
