Adlai Stevenson Hagiography in the

Adlai Stevenson Hagiography in the Times!

Remember Adam Clymer, he whom Dick Cheney was referencing when he re-invigorated usage of the word "bigtime"? In a breathless piece full of quotes from old Kennedy-era stalwarts like Ted Sorenson and, of course, Camelot-chronicler-in-chief Arthur Schlesinger, Clymer writes about the oft-mentioned "Adlai Stevenson moment" at the UNSC during the Cuban Missile Crisis showdown. A more subtle anti-war-in-Iraq piece, today, from Raines/Clymer. In essence, the Times is preemptively raising the stakes for Colin Powell to provide Perry Mason like drama at the UNSC--even though Powell has already told the international community not to expect the proverbial smoking gun (though he may purposefully be keeping expectations low). Read Clymer's "Thirteen Days" like retelling of high jinx Kennedy Administration drama here.
