Buckley, Jr., Wm.F.
October 1975
National Review;10/10/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 39, p1135
The article discusses the issue of presidential assassination attempts in the U.S. It was always obvious that no President could engage in dialogue with the voters merely by pressing his hand against theirs and it was observed that one-half million Americans ever laid eyes on former President Richard Nixon. Former President Lyndon Baines Johnson was never permitted to go anywhere without helicopters overhead from which sharpshooters dangled.
