SummaryMr. Connally, a Democrat-turned-Republican, was being rumored as a possible presidential candidate for his current party, his former party, or some third party. He and his host examine the public perceptions that had led to the poor Republican performances since World War II at every level except the presidential. JC: "If the Republican Party doesn't soon revitalize itself and rebuild its strength, if it doesn't articulate its aims and hopes and ambitions to the point where it can attract new adherents . . . then the Republican Party, at least on the national level, is limited to a contest for the Presidency every four years."
