(Studio) Comment on ideal President
REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(Studio) Need man who lives in all 3 dimensions of time, past, present and future. Must communicate ideas but not be 1 of "the boys". Must hold respect and reflect power and dignity of office. Should have style and hardness. Compassion, humor and patience needed. But nation will survive with Richard Nixon or Hubert Humphrey and so will critics.
