And on the jump, a UPI story examines the role of Kennedy’s Catholicism in the election.
Nov. 10, 1960: A Times editorial has some tips for incoming President John F. Kennedy -- he of the “terrifying campaign promises” -- on how to run the nation.
"Now we hope -- we must hope -- that the frowning mountain of responsibility will compel him to postpone the fulfillment of those promises until he has attended to the security of the United States and, as a corollary of our own security, that of the non-Communist world." The editorial is unsigned but I would guess it’s by Richard Nixon flag-waver Kyle Palmer, who often contributed to the editorial page in addition to covering politics.
