In Response to: Still Madly for Adlai

I love articles about Princeton’s history, and its notable alumni, like this one about Adlai Stevenson. The quotations from Stevenson’s own speeches reminded me of how extraordinary he was, and how far the level of political discourse has declined in our country. And the writer succeeded in showing why he was simultaneously admired and unsuccessful as a presidential candidate.
