Summer Recess Edition

Health care put on hold, much to the relief of an anxious CW. But Bill did a lot of other bills through, didn't he? So give him a break and let him stop laboring on the Vineyard.

Players                  Conventional Wisdom

B. Clinton      +/-      Sticks to his guns on assault ban, earns 

                         R & R. Remember, longer jogging shorts.

H. R. Clinton    -       Health-care dream in tatters. Get some   

                         rest, have some fun; tomorrow is another


R. Dole          -       Tried to wound Bill on crime, misfired.  

                         And stay out of New Hampshire until next 


G. Mitchell      -       Turned down Supreme Court to complete    

                         health care. Ooops. 

A. D'Amato       -       Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O. And 

                         on that farm he had an ass, E-I-E-I-O.   

Disney          +/-      Mufasa fires Simba. Will they all go off 

                         to the elephant graveyard?
