Bud is back from London but not in the office yet. His meeting with the Iranians did not achieve it’s purpose which was to persuade them to free our hostages 1st & then we’d supply the weapons. Their top man said he believed if he took that proposal to the terrorists they would kill our people.

We had an issue briefing lunch & I’m calling reluctant Repub. Reps. trying to persuade them to vote for the tax reform even though it isn’t what we want. But we need it to pass it so the Sen. can take it up & hopefully correct it.

Dick Wirthlin came by with new polling. No question but that curbing the deficit is the number one issue on the peoples mind.

Then a photo session with several Congressmen—each bringing in guests—like Thad Cochran bringing in “Mrs. America” a very nice & lovely young wife—mother of 2. A haircut finished off the day & it was home & mother.
