Page 16 - Wednesday, May 28, 1980 'A sense of the creeps" %1 think President Carter has, a preference for being a good man rather than an effective man," said James Fallows, former chief speech wpiter for Carter for two years and currently Washington editor of the "Atlantic Monthly." Addressing an audience at Soaoma State University on Tuesday night as part of the SSU President's lecture seoes, Fallows alternately praised and damned Pr'sident Carter for the way he,functions as a President and a human being. F, allows asserted that Ca):ter has a "judicial" raer than a "legislative" temperament." He trades on hi internal characteristics-- honesty, intelligence, and m(txality and applies these traits in case after case. Url$ble to become a salesman," Fallows asserts, "like a Lyndon Johnson, Carter simply applies goofiness toward the resolution of a problem in- stead of becoming a sat,.esman to enable his good desions to become tran- sla'd into laws or a change of "attitudes." "There is almost nothing a President can do simply because he wants to do it," said Fallows. "He must convince hree groups - the Congress, the public and the permanent members of the federal government." Part of a salesman's ability at the Presidential level, said Fallows, is delivering a speech well. "Only once in thth two years I was associated with the President did;he praclice a speech." Flallows cited one occasion when White House security , adyisor Zbigniew Brzezinski and former Secretary of State Cyrus Vance submitted corttradictory memos to Carer about policy toward ihSoviet Union. "I received both memos stapled together in the form of a speech," said Fallows. "The nolo to me frol,Ahe President was: "Jim, make no changes.' " &fter the speech was delivered, said Fallows, lhe Prffsident was furious at the Washington Post for a healdljne charging thai the President had delivered two speeches in one. "The me,laphor for this," said Fa!ows, "is thai Carter is the kirl of a guy who sees in his mid some great mosaic and shws us only one piece at a tirade. Most people would hae realized that the in- forj)lalion in the speech was contradictory." allows conlends that Ca(for is "'by nature a detailed, lucid thinker as opppsed to a speculative, big picture thinker." What Fh!lows likes about this apiroach is that "you can ha,e faith that he will reach a reaonable conclusion from thidata placed before him. Fo instance, in the Iranian situation, you can Irust this trai, t to allow him to assess the) various options open to thecountry. But at the same [imelte, has never been able to fvthe people the big picture of policies, which is wh@! a President has to do. AlP decisions that come to him are tough choices because if they were obvious choices someone else would have made them." Fallows likes the choice of Edmund Muskie as the new Secretary of State. "Muskie is a brilliant choice, the first reritinder in a while that Cai'ler is looking for first rate talent instead of turning to thoe at hand," he said. Ho'ever, there is no sign that the h basic incomparability between the Brzezinski view of the world and the Vance- Mukie view has come close to being resolved. 1 see no sigtl that he is going to put black and white together to mke green or some other color." Fallows said that he was given the advice to "cover his bae'" when he went to work in the White House. "You'll be'in a shark tank, I was told," he said. "It was not that" way. Relief over this gave way to wonderment and finally a sense of lhe creeps. Why was it that the place was so stagnant? I soon realized thai you would not be rewarded or promoted if you did especially well, nor would you be punished if you did pookly. Carter would drive hinself like a maniac....but he had no sense of engaging  Continued oii page 17 --.k SUPER MARKETS 750 So.
