The Look of Political Success

September 15, 1988

It is sad to think that physical imagery may have the same vote-garnering importance as ability and intelligence when we select our national leaders. This is due in no small part to photojournalism and television, which project such imagery with multitudinous regularity.

Had such media existed in the early 1860s, Stephen A. Douglas, in all probability, would have been our 16th President.

ED KYSAR,
