Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 14, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HFRALD DOWNTOWN Pre DURING THE DOWNTOWN BUSINESSMEN'S ASSN. Muskie undoubtedly strengthens claim to Democratic nomination By WILLIAM and Robert performance has also a Governor from by Mr. Nixon and the In the primary bo known that Mr. Nixon [states, especially In London Observer "favour violence to persuade Democrats and a Senator from has taken with his this year. On planned the Nixon's second home. WASHNIGTON One vivid and unexpected image stands out from the uproar and vicious innuendo that preceded last week's American election. It was the contrast between President Nixon and the Democrat spokesman, Senator Muskie, when they appeared in that order on television on the eve of poll. The first ranted and gesticulated on black and white film before a cheering crowd at a Republican rally, the recorded sound so poor that Mr. Nixon's words could scarcely be heard. The second spoke with the wrongdoer." He said: "We must deal with the symptons strive to prevent crime, halt violence and punish the wrongdoer. But, we must also look for deeper causes in the structure of our society." The stock Martian would probably have assumed he was watching President Muskie and some slightly hysterical challenger, fighting desperately against almost certain defeat. The clash on television probably came too late to have much influence on an election in any case decided to a large extent by local issues and personalities. It could have a party, for two years lead-erless, demoralised and impoverished, could win in 1972. The sudden improvement in Democrat morale appears one of the most important results of this week's election, which in terms of political mathematics was inconclusive. This absence of any clear swing after such a bitter campaign demonstrated the massive commonsense of American voters. They refused to be stampeded in any ideological direction. Tliey would not conform to any neat strategic blueprint. Tney showed They sent a couple more Republicans to the Senate, but gave the Democrats a majority of governorships. President Nixon declared himself pleased with the result. He now had "a working majority in both the House (of Representatives) and the Senate for national defence and also for foreign policy But there have been murmurs of disappointment from the White House beneatli the public claim that the Republicans would have done far worse, if the President had not personally campaigned with and the cohesion of his party. In the short term, he may well have less trouble from the rather more conservative new Senate. The Republicans made a net gain of at least two seals. In addition, Mr. Nixon can count on the support of James Buckley, elected in New York as an independent. Vice-President Ag-new has also coolly welcomed to the "working majority" Mr. Lloyd Bentsen, a conservative Democrat who won the senatorial race in Texas, in spile of Mr. Nixon's strenuous efforts in favour of the Republican candidate, George Gore lost in Tennessee, Senator Tydings in Maryland and Senator Gocdell, Hie only Republican on Mr. Agnew's "radical-liberal" list, in New York. During the campaign, Mr. Nixon pointed out that, since the Senate did not vote along strickly parly lines, it liacl gone against him on several crucial occasions by only one or two votes. Even a small change in ideological balance would therefore make all the difference. Assuming that the new Senate does give President campaign and that Vice-Prcsident Agnew acted on Ills orders. Mr. Nixon behaved as if he had some philosopher's stone that would turn Ihe real and deep anxielies of Americans into votes lor ihe Republican party. This simply did not work. The country did not accept the logical conclusion of the Nixon argument that crime, violent protest drugs and all the other afflictions that make up the "social issue" would be solved simply be electing a Republican majority in Congress. There was also little to Nixon may have won enduring gratitude for his effort on tlie local level, especially in states where he courageously tried to help Republican candidates who had little hope of election. Nationally, he has set up serious strains within the party. The cold-blooded purge of Senator Goodell was not simply an isolated case of expedient disloyalty. Liberal Republicans see it more seriously as a symptom of a deliberate altempt to narrow the party's ideological span, and this i n pursuit of strategies which this week were namely a conspicuous success. authority (and in color) from his home state of Maine. He dismissed with controlled anger the insinuation that do with the presidential election of 1972. Senator Muskie has to the packaging and sale of political candidates through the medium of 30-sec-ond television There is no way of proving this claim, while the measurable causes of rejoicing in the ideological shift, some of the President's most prominent critics in the Senate co-operation he hopes, the jrice he has paid seems disproportionately high.
