was an adviser to Bill Clinton for 20 The most recent Fox News survey sub stantiates the truth of Abraham Lin colns observation that you can fool some of the people all of the time Hil lary Clintons popularity is at an alltime having moved up She now is seen favorably by 52 percent of the electorate and unfavorably by only 37 In the years since she left the White her favorability rating had never before risen above 47 These ratings are truly a landmark for her Only very rarely did her popularity rise to the 50 percent mark during her eight years as first The trend is On one week before she left the White House and a week after she was sworn in as senator her favorabil ity rose to 52 amid accusa tions of the sale of the theft of the White House and her overt solicita tion of Hillary went into free Her favorability dropped to 44 percent that Feb and to an alltime low of 39 percent in Then Hillary began slowly to recover her rising to 44 percent in November of 2001 and 47 percent on April 2526 of this she jumped to 52 per cent in the Fox News poll taken June 14 and Why the surge It seems that as the prospect of a presiden tial candidacy Democrats are rallying around Right after Election Day last 40 percent of them wanted her to be the nominee in 44 percent support her for the At the same John Kerry has fallen from 21 percent to 17 percent and John Edwards dropped from 15 percent to 13 Hillarys move to the center including her frequent in with the likes of Newt Bill Frist and Rick Santorum is clearly paying It is also likely that Bill Clintons constant appearances with President Bush and his highly visible efforts for the tsuna mi victims are helping rehabilitate his wifes The linkage between Bills and Hillarys images is In the Fox News 38 percent of including the vast bulk of said that they would be enthusi astic about seeing Bill return to the White House as first Of 33 per cent said they were more frightened by the Hillarys and Bills surges are largely due to the complicity of leading Republicans in im plicitly endorsing her move to the center by appearing with President Bush needs to get his father to pull back on his public Bob seytwins identification with Bill and Repub licans need to let Gingrich et al know of their displeasure with his newfound bestbuddy relationship with Those who feel that America is not ready to vote for Hillary need to think As the prospect of her candidacy her ratings are going not all is not rosy on the Clinton The Ed Klein book with its al leged revelations of Bills current philander ing puts Hillary in a tough Of his lack of fidelity does not bear on her quali fications to be a good but with the charges in the political she has to deal with If she pretends not to she looks like a fool at best and a conniving pol itician who values power more than having a good marriage at But if she moves away from Bill in she loses the Stardust he sprinkles on The prospect of seeing him return to the White House is clearly a key part of Hillarys current popularity she dares not put that in jihrfjiuiuMiiM COnTACT United States Government PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH 1600 Pennsylvania NW 20500 SENATE KAY BAILEY HUTCHISON Russell

fooled They will look beyond assurances that a nominee is OK and examine the substance of that nominees record and Noth ing but delivery on the presidents prom ise will satisfy This is the big the main If the president does not nominate some one who measures up to his oftenstated view of the court and the he can forget about conservative support for anything he wants to do during the rest of
