President Nixon: Is there—Should something be done to finance one of the Democratic candidates [unclear] not sure this would work [unclear] [Ed] Muskie on the ticket.
Colson: Oh, I don't think [unclear].
President Nixon: [Unclear.]
Colson: No, I think, oddly enough, that there'll be some scattered write-ins. There'll be some Kennedy write-ins.
President Nixon: Why not-why not at least . . .
Colson: Finance a little Kennedy write-in?
President Nixon: Yeah. Put this down. I would say a postcard mailing to all Democrats in New Hampshire: "Write in for Ted Kennedy, the man you could elect." [tape whip] [Unclear] hit-get every Democrat in the state with it. Now, that doesn't cost too much.
President Nixon: See? Just an open postcard.
Colson: We're probably talking just a few thousand dollars.
President Nixon: Hmm?
Colson: You’re just talking a few thousand.
