Let's Talk Clinton: Eugene McCarthy

"Fire all the Rhodes and Oxford scholars and everyone from Arkansas."

. . . next luminary . . .

Clinton should give up being governor of the United States, which he ran for, and be president. Crime control and welfare reform and education are state and local problems. Do something about basic disorders in society, like debt and jobs.

Fire the Rhodes and Yale and Oxford scholars and everyone from Arkansas. You can't run the country with a clique.

Get a new secretary of state instead of a direct descendant of John Foster Dulles by way of Dean Rusk and Cyrus Vance. It's like a biblical succession. Democrats retreat to the foreign policy establishment and it goes nowhere."
