president in 1968 Emphatically not he said In his voice was a note of plain tiveness a plea that his answer be believed There was also the shrug of resignation from a man who as attorney general and brother of ihe President knows every word he utters for public print will be closely examined by political opponents for campaign ammuni tion by foreign diplomats for a hint of what the administration is really thinking and by reporters who consider him the most valu able news source outside the White House itself This interview held during a ride from a hotel speaking en gagement to his Justice Depart ment office was one of a recent sefies given by the attorney gen era to The Associated Press in an attempt to answer these ques tions 1 Is he being groomed to as sume the presidency when John F
