‘Leadership for America’




Alexander Haig understands the promise of America to each of its citizens.


Raised solely by his mother from the age of ten after his father passed away, Al Haig worked hard to see the fulfillment of the American dream. Toward the end of World War II and after a year at Notre Dame University, he moved on to West Point where he was commissioned a lieutenant in 1947.


His service as an aide in General Douglas MacArthur's headquarters early in his career and combat duty both in the Korean War and Vietnam gave Al Haig special insights into the sacrifices of armed conflict. Because of that experience, he knows the importance of maintaining the peace, through strength and enlightened diplomacy.


Al Haig has served seven American presidents in a variety of key positions vital to the nation's well-being. As a leader in the military, government, and industry, Al Haig has been sustained by the creativity, inventiveness and resourcefulness of his fellow Americans, which have bolstered his optimism about the nation's future.


He seeks for all Americans what he wishes for each of his children and grandchildren -- a nation with a healthy economy, strong defense, and high ideals born of traditional family values.


Only Al Haig can provide the energetic, experienced, and courageous leadership that can address the tough economic, social, and foreign policy questions facing each of us in the next decade. Join him in achieving a better tomorrow.


Alexander Haig -- statesman, soldier, business leader, public servant.


Through 40 years of service to his country, Al Haig has been a leader of men and women, with a solid record of executive experience and a keen insight into solving the nation's problems.


Al Haig possesses a clear vision of where our country should be moving as we head into the next century on the issues that matter most to the American people -- jobs and the economy, quality education, combating the menace of drugs and crime, preserving the social compact between government and citizens, and maintaining peace in the nuclear age.


To each of these issues, Al Haig brings a wealth of experience.


As White House Chief of Staff in two administrations, Haig brought both fiscal realism and compassion to the nation's domestic agenda, including housing, health care, drug abuse, farmers, youth, and senior citizens.


As NATO military commander, he worked closely with our European allies in strengthening that coalition of democratic states.


As President and Chief Operating Officer of one of the nation's most successful companies with met 200,000 employees, he dealt with the core issues of American industrial competitiveness in an increasingly globalized economy.


As Secretary of State, Haig was a voice of strength and reason in enunciating our country's foreign policy. He advocated the need for the world community, especially the Soviet Union, to accept a code of international conduct based upon the rule of law and peaceful change rather than bloodshed, terrorism and so-called wars of liberation.


"The American people deserve and will only support a government that is compassionate toward its citizens, open in its dealings with them and guided by a deep sense of fairness for all"

-Alexander M. Haig, Jr


The cause of peace and continued economic development depends on enlightened leadership. Al Haig will bring to the nation's highest office those special qualities of Presidential leadership to move our nation into the crucial decade of the 1990's.


Al Haig believes in the promise of better times, of an even greater America. He believes we have the intent, and that we have the resources. And with the renaissance of the American spirit, we have the will.
