The Note: First Source for Political News: "There is a creeping fear among some Democrats that they are up against a party that knows and lives by the following:

"First Rule of Politics: 'It ain't beanbag.'

"Second Rule of Politics: 'Never lose control of your public image, but force your opponent to lose control of his.'

"Third Rule of Politics: 'In times of battle, all hands on deck.'

"Fourth Rule of Politics: 'Keep your candidate above the fray, but force your opponent to debate and defend against surrogates and shadowy, ferocious enemies.'

"Fifth Rule of Politics: 'Say things that get under your opponent's skin, and which will sound so implausible to his ear that at first he won't bother to defend himself.'"
