XIV.

A New Generation Takes Over

In the summer of 1959 Mrs. Roosevelt received a gay card from Adlai Stevenson postmarked Corsica. He was cruising in the Mediterranean with Adlai Jr., his wife, Bill Benton and his family, and some friends, "and all we've missed is you!" It was exciting to get a postcard from him, she replied:

I don't think I would be the perfect addition because I have never had Franklin's success in really enjoying the ocean even when it is fairly calm. I would have loved to have been with all of you, however, and I hope that the rest of the summer will be as pleasant as these past weeks.

Her letter went on to give news of other Stevenson friends. She had seen Mary Lasker, "and poor Anna Rosenberg has had to go into the hospital." The Stevenson "loyalists" were keeping in touch with each other. 1

After the 1956 defeat she assumed that Stevenson would not run again but felt that the forward-looking elements in the Democratic party should continue to look to him for leadership while younger men in the party were encouraged to come forward to establish their claim to the 1960 nomination. Asked in 1957 who would make a good candidate in 1960, she named Wayne Morse, G. Mennen Williams, Joseph Clark, Edmund Muskie, * and Chester Bowles. 2

The handling of the nation's foreign affairs loomed uppermost

"I wish he were better known throughout the country," she wrote of Governor Muskie when he was running for the Senate in 1958, "for I think he has the qualities of greatness which might even lead him to be considered for the Presidency some day" ("My Day," August 29, 1958).
