Lodge has given no indication he intends to quit his post as U.S. ambassador to South Viet Nam, even if he tops the list of presidential hopefuls in the May 15 Oregon primary. But the general feeling among party professionals is that it would be little short of a miracle if the San Francisco convention nominated a man who remained half a world away engaged in forming and carrying out the policies of a Democratic administration. The Johnson administation has taken some pains to link Lodge closely to .US. policy, and has sought also to demon- strate that he has personal re- sponsibility for (he controver- sial operations in Viet Nam.
