Quayle won’t run for president in 1996

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Vice President Dan Quayle has decided not to enter the 1996 presidential race because of the difficulties raising the money for a viable campaign, a senior adviser said today.
Quayle made the decision late Wednesday night and planned to issue a statement later today, said Mark Goodin, who had been helping Quayle prepare for the race.
Just last month, Quayle said he was a definitely running and planned to file candidacy papers by Feb. 21. But in his travels and deliberations since, Quayle has found money hard to come by and got discouraged when con
fronted with what it would take to raise enough for a credible candidacy, Goodin said.
“He was extremely excited and fired up about running a campaign,” Goodin said. “But the financial aspect of it threw a bucket of cold water on his enthusiasm.”
Quayle’s decision is yet another indication that the GOP field will be far smaller than expected just a few months ago. In recent weeks, both former Defense Secretary Dick Cheney and former Housing Secretary Jack Kemp have announced they would not run.
That leaves a field of Senate Major
ity Leader Bob Dole, Texas Sen. Phil Gramm and former Tennessee Gov. Lamar Alexander. Others considering joining them include Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter, Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar and conservative commentator Patrick Buchanan. A few GOP governors also are mulling the race.
Since leaving office with the Bush administration, Quayle has kept a relatively low profile while living in Indiana and pursuing business interests. He was hospitalized twice recently for health problems, first for blood clots and then to have his appendix removed because doctors had detected a benign tumor.
Longtime advisers had urged Quayle not to run, suggesting he stay active in business or perhaps run for governor of Indiana as part of an effort to rebuild his public image. But Quayle ignored their advice, even after his health problems, and on Jan. 22 delivered an impassioned speech to an Indianapolis convention outlining the themes of his planned campaign.
“Tonight I am back in the arena with you and that is where I intend to stay,” Quayle said.
Since then, he has traveled extensively and Goodin said he was “extremely delighted” with his reception. “But he was also extremely daunt-
Foster defends his record in fighting teen pregnancy
WASHINGTON (AP) — With a vote of confidence from President Clinton, Dr. Henry W. Foster Jr. is defending his efforts to discourage teen pregnancy as doctor groups rally behind the embattled surgeon general nominee.
Conservative Republican senators vowed Thursday to try to defeat the nomination, while a half-dozen Democrats — five of them women — rose to Foster’s defense.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a half-dozen other major medical organizations called a news conference today to reiterate their support for the obstetri-cian-gynecologist, whose credibility has been called into question over how many abortions he has performed.
Foster was addressing medical students at George Washington University Medical Center today on the teen pregnancy prevention program he created in two Nashville housing projects. The program, “I Have a Future,” stresses abstinence and self-control, but also distributes condoms.
The president signalled that he won’t give up on the medical educator he tapped as successor to the controversial Joycclyn Elders, whom he fired in December for suggesting that perhaps masturbation should be taught in sex education classes.
“I have confidence in him. I think he’s a good man, I think he’ll be a good surgeon general,” Clinton said at a White House news conference with German Chancellor Helmut Kohl.
It "would be a grave mistake" not to let the Senate pass judgment on Foster’s qualifications, said Clinton. "I
want him to have his hearings. I believe the Senate will support him. And I think we should not back away from this.”
Foster said Wednesday night on ABC’s “Nightline” that hospital records at Meharry Medical College in Nashville indicated he performed 39 abortions, not the “fewer than a dozen” he claimed last week. He also presided over a study of an experimental drug that induced abortions in 55 of 60 women.
Administration officials conceded privately that the 61-year-old doctor had not made the best case for himself in the televised interview from the White House.
He practically read his resume and although he said he abhors abortions, Foster offered various justifications for the abortion-inducing study, from trying to find a safer alternative to mechanical procedures to the need to train residents on how to handle complications from abortions.
Foster worked at several other hospitals before joining Meharry in 1973. White House press secretary Mike McCurry said Thursday morning that administration officials were not certain all of the hospital records had been searched. But an aide said Thursday evening it was unlikely the number of abortions would go up.
McCurry said it docs not matter how many abortions Foster performed.
But Sen. Dan Coats. R-Ind., who serves on the committee that would hold hearings on Foster, called on Clinton to withdraw the nomination or face "a very controversial two months."
“I think there’s a litmus test here, but it’s not abortion. And the litmus test is truth,” said Coats. “At this point the president and Dr. Foster’s versions of the truth seem to be changing every day.”
Sen. Phil Gramm, R-Texas, said he "will do everything I can to defeat the nomination.”
Coats and Gramm helped torpedo Clinton’s health reforms last year.
Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., called the attacks on Foster “outra
geous ... not American.” She warned that no one will volunteer to serve in the Cabinet or high-level posts “if this toxic atmosphere” keeps up.
Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., called the anti-abortion opposition a “witch hunt.”
Other Democrats speaking out for Foster were Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein of California, Patty Murray of Washington and Carol Moseley-Braun of Illinois.
