BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, DKCKMBKR 28, 1988 Demo Hopefuls Butting Heads in Fight with GOP By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — If the Democrats could just got a few more presidential i';uuii- datee to take off their sweaters aad run out on the field, they'd luive a pretty lively yatin- gOHlg. Jt may turn lively soon, and rough, too. While the Democratic hopefulsi there is no public clamor for .stari-t ulitn bucking the Republicans iheyl ling changes or innovation: are also knocking each other's heads together. One or more, may land in the political infirmary before the party's convention blows the whistle and picks a candidate. Adlai Stevenson and Sen, Este.s Kefauver of Tennessee are the only Democrats who have come right out and started running. They may have some company before convention next August. New York's Gov. AvereH Harriman says he's not an "active" candidate. But he acts tike a man! racing down the sidelines, hoping for a forward pass and yelling! "Hey, fellahs, look at me." Two other governors — Ohio'. Frank Lausche and Michigan's G Mennen Williams — at the momen «eem bothered by restra int bu only to the point of not saying they're candidates. They're sun making sounds like candidates. Favorite Son Lausche simply says he will be his state's "favorite son" candi date, which can be interpreted as meaning he won't stump the coun try for the nomination but woulc love to get it at the*convention Williams, like Harriman, bashful. Both have hit Stevenson over the head with a charge which to some people, may seem as deadly as a balloon. They complain he want* to follow a moderate oours*. But there are probably plenty who disagree with them if they think they sound more aggressive or progressive than Stevenson. One thing is certain: they can't be sensationally different and expect their party's nomination.
