After the election of President Nixon to his second Presidential term, many questions have been asked whether or not the cabinet will remain divided or unite for the betterment and the welfare of the American people. After a recent statement by Henry Kissinger however, this debate has only become more heated.
While addressing his fellow cabinet members, he made a pitch to address the growing concerns of liberal pundits and citizens, regarding both the continuation of the deliverance of civil rights expansion as well as the growing crusade by many organizations to achieve greater equality across the board. In addition we were informed that the cabinet was discussing perhaps stepping back on recent promises to expand military operations and shift to a more volunteer-based system in regards to the physical makeup of the military, a reversal of the current draft system dealing with the conflict in Vietnam. This news is very agreeable to all Americans as it would ensure that American lives will not be wasted fighting for some political cause that much of the nation views as misplaced and mishandled.
While the majority of the cabinet, including the White House Communications Director Mr. Herbert Klein, supported recent shifts in the policy of the Nixon administration to address growing concerns by all Americans both domestically and abroad, there were also voices of dissension such as Mr. Henry Kissinger who stated that the cabinet and Administration “cannot liberalize ourselves to appeal to their voter base”. This being in reference to the recent changes to the Administration’s shift in policy. Any further information regarding this issue will be released with most haste.
