Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 46 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September zS, 19.4 He won't run Senator Edward Kennedy says he won't seek the U.S. presidency in 1976. Kennedy's exit throws party race wide open By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) Senator Edward Kennedy, in re- jecting a run at the White at least for set the stage for the most wide-open Democratic party nomina- tion race in nearly 25 years. Kennedy appeared to be the only clear and obviously formidable Democratic prospect until he pulled back Mon- day with the explanation that "my primary responsibilities are at home." Now. the guessing is among at least three Jackson. Walter Mondale. Minnesota; and Lloyd Bentsen, Representative Morris Udall, Arizona, all of whom have been making preliminary moves at the nomination. However, with Kennedy out of the running, more prospects are expected to emerge, including senators Birch Bayh. In- diana: Adlai Stevenson, Illinois; Edmund Muskie, Maine; William Proxmire. Wisconsin, and others. The prospects among the governors are led by George Wal- lace. Alabama, and include John Gilligan, Ohio: Dale Bumpers. Arkansas: Dan Walter. Illinois. There are few who dispute Kennedy's announced reason for not this the post which has held such a fatal fascination for his family. There are few, also, who appear to accept it as the only reason. Kennedy would have faced President Ford in 1976. and po- litical strategists point out that it's tough to beat the man in the job. Ford would not be eligible to run in 1980 when Kennedy, at 48. would be of an ideal age. Ironically. the fact that he is a stood to suffer heavily from a heightened public concern over political morality that results from the Repuclian scandals of Watergate. Scandal not forgotten Republicans, who suffered the disillusionment of watching a Republican Nixon brought down by scandal, would have been unlikely to have let the public forget the Chappaquiddick incident. Kennedy himself recognized that unanswered questions concerning the July 19.1969. car accident at Chappaquiddick. Mass., in which a young secretary was killed, would haunt his campaign. A week ago he said that if he became a candidate he would answer any questions raised about the accident. With Kennedy out. Mondale appears to be the most liberal of the early field, with Bentsen a dark-horse possibility. Jackson could gain strength with organized labor, now that a Kennedy alternative is removed, but he still is expected to face tough opposition from party liberals. Some sentiment remains for Wallace, particularly in the South, and to be strong enough to put his stamp on whoever wins the nomination. However. Wallace's early anti-racial integration philo- sophies are expected to make him generally unacceptable. Democrats, who had hoped that the Kennedy name m itself might have been an asset, now admit to a feeling of lost op- portunity to be approaching the first presidential election since Watergate without a single, strong candidate Prince willing to return GKNFA'A i AFP' Crown Prmre Mend Azmatch Asfa Wossvn of Ethiopia sax! he is willing to rot urn 1o Eihiopia as c on M11 ij 11 on a 1 m on a r r'n following ihf overthrow of his father, "x-empemr Hailr Selassie, by ihe armed forces.
