TBtmSDAY. JANUARY 23, 1969 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 3~B Democratic Flub: Losing O'Brien's Political Savvy FLU HITS WARSAW By BRUCE BIOSSAT NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON fNEAl Lawrence P. O'Brien's departure from the national political scene signals the temporary end of & career in organization!il politics which somehow never was allowed to reach the peak it was clearly destined for. Probably not in this century has there been in (>ither major party a man more suited by ability, energy, temperament and training for what ought to be in ovtfy case the exacting responsibilities of a national chairmanship. But after 16 years of laboring in the political vineyards, much of that time in behalf of presidents or presidential candidates, 0"Bvien found it his fate to gain the Democratic chairmanship only at a very late hourin tine 1968 campaign—with -o- -o- -••> just fwo mnoths to perform * near-miracle and try to elect Vice President Humphrey. What he. in fact, Inherited on Sept. 1. 1SG8. was an Incredible wreckage which, by some curious rrasoning, hail originally been expected to serve an Incumbent, President Johnson, and was not even fit for that, let alone supporting a successor nominee. Having been described by the late President Kennedy as the "best elections man in the business," O'Brien looked in 1960 to be the wisest possible choice for the new president's national chairman. But there came the first unfortunate turn.

Dutifully, O'Brien took on the task and performed supremely well, continuing there at the same high level for two years under President Johnson. The national chairmanship at the outset went to John Haley, sirnply as a reward for his early attachment to Kennedy's cause and his labors in locking up New England's 11.4 delegate votes, roughly a seventh of the number Kennedy needed for nomination. O'Brien never relished the liaison job, but he abandoned thought of the chairmanship, do- spite repeated rumors he would get it. Johnson talked 0"Brien into serving longer as liaison man than he wanted to. Then, when he was about to leave, the President stunned him by naming him postmaster general. He was always a key political adviser to Johnson. His services in 1966 were legion. Yet even after the Democratic disaster that -o -o- -o- have O'Brien replace Bailey, Johnson would not shift nis most reliable political aide to that post. Had Johnson run n^iin in 196S. O'Brien would ultimately have been his camnaign manner. But -o- -IV loyalty (o the party, and a scribbled note from his wife around 4 a.m. telling him to go ahead, persuaded O'Brien to take the national chairmanship through the campaign and a little beyond. Strong prcssun s on him to friends among politician* and their skeptical observers.

Suspicion always existed in some party quarters that Johnson hung hack from naming O'Brien national chairman because he feared that in that his earlier Kennedy associations would rise to fresh prominence and disadvantage Johnson.
