Interview with Walter Mondale
QUESTION 47
INTERVIEWER:

I'M GOING TO STOP FOR A MOMENT, LET ME THINK ABOUT IF I HAVE ANYTHING ELSE I WANT TO ASK YOU HERE, JUST ASK YOU UM, TO TELL US AGAIN: WAS THE WHITE HOUSE A PART OF THIS IN ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT WAY? WERE YOU TALKING WITH MR. JOHNSON'S REPRESENTATIVES, HIS PEOPLE, OR WERE YOU PRETTY MUCH LEFT ON YOUR OWN WITH A GENERAL MANDATE?

Walter Mondale:

We were pretty much left on our own, but from time to time at these meetings uh, there would be a representative of the White House present. And I'm trying to remember his name, I can't right now.
