C-12 Santa Cruz Sentinel Tuesday, March 29, 1988 Campaign '88 C Who will join Bush on ticket? mi ill r i ... j., i t r. a WASHINGTON (AP) - Howard H. Baker Jr. says he won't be asked. California Gov. George Deukmejian says he wouldn't be able to accept. George Bush says it's too early to think about it. Still, a lot of people do. As the vice president's grip on the Republican presidential nomination tightens, the question arises: Who will be his running mate? In a forthcoming political column for the London Sunday Times, former President Nixon says White House Chief of Staff Baker could be Bush's best bet. Nixon argues that Baker, a Ten-nesseean and former Senate Republican leader, would be helpful in Southern states and in dealing with Congress. In a recent television interview. Baker said, "George Bush needs to find someone who will bring strength to the ticket on a regional and political basis, and I think that is not going to be me." He didn't say he would turn it down. "If someone asked me to do added. "I do not wish that to happen." Political professionals interviewed said they believe Baker, like many other politicians who have said they were not interested in the No. 2 spot, would accept if asked. Baker has mentioned former Tennessee Gov. Lamar Alexander. Deukmejian. New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean and former Pennsylvania Gov. Richard Thornburgh as good choices for the vice presidential slot. If Deukmejian left office in midterm, Lt. Gov. Leo T. McCarthy, a Democrat, would become governor of the nation's largest state. At a news conference in Sacramento recently, the California governor said, "Even if they did ask me to accept the vice presidential nomination, I wouldn't be able to take it." Later, he added, "That doesn't mean I wouldn't like to be vice president." Kenneth L. Khachigian. a political adviser to the governor, has advised him to keep the door ajar, telling the Los Angeles Times. "We shouldn't dismiss anvthing out of hand rW Vm:MLi Richard Thornburgh ning mate, as John F. Kennedy chose Lyndon B. Johnson and as President Reagan chose Bush. But. he says in his forthcoming column, there might be too much bitterness between the vice president and his chief rival. Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole of Kansas. Bush will have one unusual alternative: Pick his principal rival's wife. Some are urging that he select Elizabeth Dole, the Reagan secretary of transportation who was considered a potential presidential contender herself at one point. Another possibility: Rep. Jack Lamar Alexander Thomas Kean Elizabeth Dole fared poorly. Monday, Kemp endorsed Bush and pledged to "help him be the next president of the United States." Also mentioned is Sen. Nancy Kassebaum of Kansas. She was on a long list of potential Reagan running mates in 1980 but took herself out of consideration because, as a freshman senator, she said she didn't have enough experience. She has eight years more of it now. If Bush should decide to choose a Midwesterner, to strengthen the ticket in a region that could be crucial to Republican hopes, another him in the Illinois presidential primary. Other names that have been mentioned include Sen. Alan Simpson of Wyoming, Dole's deputy in the Senate leadership; Secretary of Education William J. Bennett; Sen. Phil Gramm of Texas, an architect of the congressional deficit-reduction mechanism, and Colin Powell, the president's national security adviser and one of the top-ranking blacks in the Reagan administration. All of this, of course, assumes that the vice president wins the nomi nation. He is wav ahead, and Dole George Deukmejian Bush, asked whether he would consider Dole as a running mate. said. "It's too early for me to start thinking about any running mates. That would project a certain arrogance or presumption that I don't want to do." Usually, the presidential nominee makes his vice presidential choice at the convention. Bush could, however, follow the lead of Democrat Walter Mondale. who announced his selection of Geraldine Ferraro before the convention in 1984. "My advice and counsel to him would be to hold off." said veteran Washington political consultant Tom Korologos.

White Democratic leaders who do not support Jackson admitted they were in a quandary, wondering if there was a way to confront the growing movement toward Jackson without appearing to be racist and without alienating the large core of activists, including many white liberals, that he has attracted. Leading Democrats said Monday that Jackson's stunning victory in the Michigan caucuses Saturday confronted the party with a crisis and left the nominating process in disarray The only real step Monday toward clarifying the situation, however modestly, was the announcement by Rep consolidate the status he won with his landslide victory in the Michigan caucuses He campaigned in Connecticut lor the primary today and joined several rivals in a debate that kicked off the campaign for the delegate-rich New York pi i: mry on April 19 He also scheduled meetings in Washing-Ion on Wednesday with such Democratic establishment figures as Clark M Clifford, a former secretary of delense. and John White, a former Democratic national chairman. Jackson's strategy for continuing to win delegates is the same one he has pursued so far projecting himself as the only candidate with a ringing message and an interesting personality, encouraging voters to use his candidacy to vote against powerful economic elites and to demonstrate their own racial tolerance; and. by continuing to avoid attacks on his foes, making it all the day by Paul Kirk, the Democratic national chairman Kirk said that if Jackson came to the convention in July with more delegates than anyone else, "the party has to acknowledge that the people have spoken and rally bhind his ultimate nomination." At the moment. Jackson and Gov. Michael S Dukakis of Massachusetts are just about even in delegates, w ith the totals from Michigan still uncertain because the vote is not fully counted. One indication of the awkwardness of the Democrats' situation was the decision of the Dukakis campaign to cancel meetings with two key House Democratic leaders. Speaker Jim Wright of Texas, and Tony Coelho of California, the House whip The meetings had been planned in hopes of early endorsements. While the Dukakis campaign said the meetings had been canceled to give the governor more tune to campaign in Con "stop Jesse movement. Around Washington, the words used by leading while Democrats to describe their party's situation included crisis, disarrary. disaster, consternation, mess, and wacky "You've never heard a sense of panic sweep the party as it has in the last few-days." said David Garth, an adviser to Sen Albert Gore Jr. of Tennessee. Garth predicted that "the anti-Jackson constituency, when the reality of his becoming president seeps in. may be a much bigger constituency than there is out there right now." But he added that the risks of attacking Jackson are so high that "winning the nomination will not be worth a damn" to the candidate who pursued a strongly anti-Jackson strategy. Ann F. Lewis, an adviser to Jackson, said that Jackson's appeal came in part from being something other than a typical politician Candidates who attacked Jackson in conventional terms" risked plaving into his hands by "conveying the impression that they are just olhce-seeking politicians." she said. Dukakis' overwhelming defeat in Michigan appeared to stall a movement toward him among party leaders that had begun last week. Still, at least one prominent Democratic congressman who asked not to be named said he would endorse Dukakis soon "because he's down and needs the help " Several Dukakis supporter predicted that Dukakis would soon start to win endorsements and key primaries in large part, they said, because he is still the parly's best hope for victory in November. Democrats and Republicans interviewed Monday said Jackson's strength starkly revealed the weaknesses of the rest of the Democratic field Demos make final pitch to Connecticut voters The New York Times HARTFORD. Conn. - The three leading candidates in the increasingly muddled race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Gov. Michael S. Dukakis, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Sen. Albert Gore Jr.. made last-minute campaign stops in Connecticut Monday on the eve of the state's primary. Dukakis, widely viewed as the front-runner here, visited a senior citizens' center in New Britain and a middle school in East Hartford. The Massachusetts governor refused to make predictions about the primary or comment about Jackson's Connecticut campaign. "I'm not running against him. and he's not running against me." the governor said. "We are both running for the presidency." Jackson, bolstered by his 2-to-l victory over Dukakis Saturday in the Michigan Democratic caucuses, appeared at a soup kitchen in Middle-town, a community center in Water- bury and at a rally at the Old State House here in Hartford. At each stop, he exhorted hundreds of supporters "to keep Michigan fever alive" and was greeted with chants of "Win Jesse Win!" Gore, meanwhile, boarded a train from Milford to Stamford, shook hands with still-sleepy New York-bound commuters and criticized his rivals in the race. "I congratulate Mr. Jackson on his victory in Michigan." the Tennessee senator said. "But we need someone with experience in Washington, and neither Jackson or Dukakis have that kind of experience." The senator's campaign officials were far more elated with Jackson's victory in Michigan. "I think it's wonderful for Jesse Jackson and for Al Gore." said Martin J. Dunleavy, Gore's Connecticut campaign manager. "It means the American people are not ready to decide who the nominee is. They are not ready to accept the Dukakis steamroller."
