Wallace Not Likely

Wallace Not Likely

Professor McHenry envisaged the possibility of a general regrouping within the two major parties, so that the reactionaries on both sides would combine in the face of combination of the progressive wings of the two parties. "Wallace is not a likely presidential candidate for 1948. He cannot command the American people's support for his attitude towards Russia and the other European democracies." Dean McHenry was then asked about the role and influence of Communists inside the trade unions. He emphasised that many Union leaders are pro-Communist but that they were elected democratically. The deduction from this must be that those men have been outstanding for their leadership and organisational ability within the Unions concerned. "It is the Communists in the main who are taking an active interest in Union affairs."
