Interview Summary

First perceptions of JSC are often misleading, as he seems not to have his thoughts together. Upon reflection though, Janensch was very impressed by his style. JSC is characterized as an independent voter, especially on issues like foreign policy and civil rights. Senator Cooper consistently voted for his states interests on tobacco and agriculture in general. Janensch discusses his perceptions of coopers staff members, specifically Bill Miller and Bailey Guard. He compares JSC to George Aiken and Thruston Morton. Janensch discusses partisan politics, campaigning, and JSC's relationship with the JFK.
