Votes for a Vision

To the Editors:

Jerry Ford ran his campaign primarily on his record. Unfortunately for him, Jimmy Carter ran on what he will do, and the American people have decided they want to pin their hopes on a man with a vision to get America moving again [Nov. 15].

President Ford has nothing to be ashamed about. Morally, he gave us what we needed at the time he assumed office. But what America now needs is a change—an energetic, thoughtful man —and America has chosen Jimmy Carter.
