How does it feel to be the number two man in government? What is the Vice-President's position on the tax cut? Most questions were answered in about the same way. The Vice-President said he hoped to help President Ford and the American people revitalise the nation.
(SEQ. 3): VICE-PRESIDENT ROCKEFELLER: "This is a very big government, we are through a difficult period. We're in a period of change and in a period of change at home, and difficult circumstances for every family in America, but we are in a period of change in the world."
