(Studio) Senator Henry "Scoop" Jackson, 62, assembles family and reporters to watch TV ad of his announcement for president candidacy. Paid political announcement shown. [JACKSON - announces candidacy.]
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) Jackson was flop in `72 campaign.
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(Manchester, New Hampshire) Jackson collected $1 million before new campaign limits set. Issues, like energy, gasoline prices, strip mining, environment and Jewish emigration, on his side.
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(Nashua, New Hampshire) His name recognition built to 50%. He's had cosmetic surgery around eyes.
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(Waltham, Massachusetts) He's campaigned for leftist candidates and is opposed to more aid for Saigon.
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(DC) Evidence shows he's not changed since spring `72. Appearing thoughtful, deliberate and well-informed makes him appear unrelieved, humorless, unforgiving and mean. He smiles, but rarely laughs. Legis. record substantial. He's front-runner since Senators Edward Kennedy and Hubert H. Humphrey not running. Ex-Senator, Ex-Governor and Arizona Congman. run against him. He has lack of image and limited constituency.
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

Cronkite, Walter;
Mudd, Roger
