Perot's vice-presidential choice

The editorial "The Tabloid Debate," Oct. 15, questions Ross Perot's team-building skills based on his vice presidential selection. This ignores the situation Mr. Perot faced in making the selection. In order to get on the ballot in many states, he had to name a vice presidential candidate. He announced Vice Adm. James Stockdale as a stand-in to give him time for a more studied selection process. When Perot reentered the race, he had another vice presidential selection problem. In a number of states it wo uld have been impossible and highly impractical to get another candidate on the ballot.
