expected to reaffirm his belief that
Americans want a federal govern-
ment that is activist as well as limited.
"We need a new form of government
that is smaller, less bureaucratic, more
creative ... but one that is an effective
partner, notadisabledor amean (gov-
ernment) on the sideline," he said in
Los Angeles last week.
ButClinton faces an uphill struggle
in changing the public's impression
of him. Tomorrow evening's speech
will be only a start, at best.
"Itisn't easy to change the public's
view of a sitting president," said po-
litical scientist William Schneider, a
contributing editor to the Los Ange-
les Times' Opinion section and a CNN
"After two years, people have a
pretty good idea of what they think of
Clinton. Most Americans think he's a
good man who wants the right things.
But they have also concluded that he's
weak and ineffectual ... and it's hard to
turn that around," Schneider said.
It might seem strange for a presi-
dent who has been speaking in public
almost every day for years to find it
necessary to reintroduce himself. But
Clinton and his aides believe that a
major factor behind his party's sweep-
ing defeat in November's congres-
sional election was their own inabil-
ity to effectively communicate
Clinton's vision and values.
"It's easy to be demonized when
you're a long way from where people
live," Clinton fretted in a speech last
month. The middle-class voters who
put the Republicans into power "are
the very people I've been up here
killing myself for two years trying to
help," he said.
Rivers said that the Washington
establishment often hurts the images
of politicians. "Most of the Washing-
ton population exists to either create
and image, or to destroy an image, or
to somehow manipulate information,"
she asserted, "and I think that's the
problem most people have with Wash-
There is at least one precedent for
what Clinton hopes to do, he noted:
"Harry Truman did it in 1947 and
1948," after a similarly disastrous loss
in both houses of Congress.
But Truman won his image as a
strong leader by taking the initiative
in Cold War confrontations with the
Soviet Union, threatening to seize
U.S. railroads during a 1948 strike
and challenging a passive Republican
Congress to act on his domestic
agenda. "He had opportunities that
Clinton doesn't have," Schneider said.
The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - The Justice
Department is set to announce steps
today that would force a number of
states to comply with the federal "mo-
tor voter" law that allows people to
register to vote when they apply for
driver's licenses or social services,
said sources familiar with the
A lawsuit is among the tactics
under consideration for use against
states that have either made little or
no effort to enforce the law or have
expressed opposition to the matter,
the sources said. California, Pennsyl-
vania, Illinois and South Carolina are
among the states facing possible ac-
tion, the sources said. Under the law,
the Justice Department can sue to

'motor voter' law
creasingly heated legal battle that inter-
twines politics and the long-standing
debate over states' rights. The Clinton
administration strongly supports enforc-
ing the law, which it believes will ex-
tend the vote to people who tradition-
ally have been unregistered and disen-
franchised. But some state leaders con-
tend the law represents another "un-
funded federal mandate" requiring states
to implement a measure without federal
dollars to do so.
Late last month, Republican Cali-
fornia Gov. Pete Wilson filed a law-
suit in federal court seeking to bar the
administration from enforcing the law
and ordered his state agencies not to
implement it. Wilson's move was in
open defiance to the Clinton adminis-
tration and Reno, who last year prom-
ised to use the authority of the depart-
ment to enforce the law. Wilson has
said that enforcement of the law would
cost $35.8 million annually.

The carnage at Beit Lid was the
worst since anothersuicide bomber blew
up a bus full of commuters in down-
town Tel Aviv in October, killing 23
people. Lastyear, suicide bombers from
radical Islamic groups also struck in
Jerusalem and two central Israeli towns.
In response to yesterday's attack,
the Israeli Cabinet ordered the army to
seal the Palestinian territories, both the
West Bank and the Gaza Strip, to pre-
vent Palestinians from entering Israel.
The Cabinet, meeting late into the
evening, also decided to freeze the
planned release of Palestinian prison-
ers and to suspend the use of special
transit corridors for Palestinians trav-
eling between the Gaza Strip and the
West Bank town of Jericho.
But the Cabinet resolved to con-
tinue negotiations with the PLO over
the extension of Palestinian self-rule
on the West Bank, the pullback of
Israeli forces in the region and the
holding of Palestinian elections.
President Ezer Weizman, in an
unusual challenge to Rabin, publicly
demanded that the talks be suspended
in an effort to force PLO Chairman
Yasser Arafat to crack down on the
Islamic groups opposed to the peace
agreement with Israel.

Regular contact between the two
groups began in winter 1993 with
issue-related "study groups."
Study group participants discussed
readings that addressed contentious
issues such as jurisdiction over water
rights and the status of Jerusalem.
One example of further collabo-
ration between the two groups was a
side-by-side demonstration on the

of 48 Muslims at a mosque in

More than 500 U.S. hospitals
and clinics have stopped offering
abortions since the early 1980s, and
the number of young physicians who
learn abortion techniques as part of
their training has plummeted. Re-
productive-health researchers say
the decrease has contributed to a
decline in abortions in the United
The U.S. abortion rate fell in 1992
to 25.9 abortions per 1,000 women of
child-bearing age, its lowest level
since 1976, according to a recent study
by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, a
non-profit group that researches sexu-
ality and contraception.
Yet many militant anti-abortion
organizations have dismissed the calls
for a moratorium.
"With all due respect, (the mora-
torium) does not make good moral or
tactical sense," said Robert Schenck,
a Protestant minister and an anti-abor-
tion leader in Washington.
"If America wants to reject vio-

further delay," added Frank Pavone,
