"Never Full Time" Sparkman said that in discussing the medically imposed limits on his activities in any second term, Elsenhower was "quite frankly and openly saying to the country that he can never be a truly full-time president . . ." "If a full measure of health is ever needed anywhere," Sparkman continued, "it is needed In the White House. "I do not hesitate to say that the American people cannot and will not sanction the Republican proposal for a part-time president to deal with full-time problems." Sparkman declared that an "absence of full-time presidential command" is reflected in almost daily newspaper accounts indicating what he termed "Indecision, confusion and drift" at home and abroad.
