MONDAY thru FRIDAY Now In Our 13th Year of srvice to Austin GARNER SMITH BO STORE 2116 Guadalupe Austin, Texas 711710 4774725 Briscoe, it must be remembered, did not distinguish himself as leader of the Texas delegation to the 1972 Democratic Convention. He first endorsed George Wallace and then changed to George McGovern, managing to alienate both the right and left wings of the Texas delegation. On prime time television he was mainly heard to say “Texas passes,” and the four-year-old jokes about “Texas passes” are already being brought out of moth balls in anticipation of another Texas delegation with Briscoe at the helm. Neither he nor Bentsen could actually be expected to lead any state faction other than the Bentsen troops. The Texas delegation should divide into its usual cantankerous, warring camps. Former Sen. Ralph Yarborough, the man whom Bentsen defeated for the Senate in 1970, held a press conference to criticize his old enemy’s plan to be a favorite son. He said, “Texas Democrats have a great opportunity to demonstrate that they will no longer send a delegation to the national convention packaged and pledged to be brokered by one man for his own personal gain … as though they were potatoes in sacks, wool in bags, or cotton in bales.” Yarborough was selected to run on the Austin uncommitteds’ slate. Bentsen says he wants to be a “unifying” force offering “reasoned, moderate leadership” at the convention \(this is also what he wanted to do as a presidential cantough” for a moderate to win the Democratic nomination, but, he adds, “if any party nominates an extremist, that party will lose.” The senator says he will support whichever presidential candidate comes closest to duplicating his views on the national issues. \(He was presumably referring only to Democratic candidates, but no one comment on George Wallace. “Let’s let them develop their issues first,” he said. But he added in what appeared to be a reference to Jimmy Carter that some candidates have not really let people know where they stand. “Well, who comes closest to the Texas viewpoint?” asked one reporter. “I do,” said Bentsen.
