Why Trivialize the Candidates?

December 12, 1987

I found "Star Makers Eye the Candidates" repulsive.

Not only was it fluff, it was s tupid fluff. Yes, we want an acting President; no, we do not need a President who can do a good rendition of Henry IV.

We have already had seven years with Ronald Reagan, a very telegenic man. He looks very presidential waving in front of helicopters; he definitely has the "it" of which the "Hollywood experts" spoke. But "it" is not enough to lead a nation effectively.

The U.S.A. needs a leader with depth.
