Perot: no strings attached

The editorial "Perot: the Immaculate Politician," April 21, is totally mystifying. It postulates that a President Perot may be ineffectual because of lack of political identity and connections. Parties notwithstanding, the United States is obviously wanting to end the costly and dead-end political processes. Let a President Perot proceed, and the constituencies will darn well keep track of the voting records of their elected representatives. Clearly Perot is considered a candidate because of his lack of political entailments. Norman S. Benedict, Hawthorne, Calif.
