Powell stumps for Dole in Ohio
Los Angeles Times
CINCINNATI - Republican presidential candi-
date Bob Dole campaigned in a crucial state yesterday
with retired Gen. Colin Powell - keeping up an elab-
orate game of tease in which Dole repeatedly has hint-
ed that Powell would have a role in his administration,
but has failed to specify a post.
Dole aides often have suggest-
ed that their candidate might soon E SA,
announce a potential Cabinet post
for Powell - Secretary of State is
the one most often mentioned - '
hoping that if Dole did make that
move it would generate some
excitement for the Republican
But so far, nothing has come of
it. Dole likes to say that Powell
would be "one of the stars" of a Dole
Dole administration, but will go
Powell, for his part, has not seemed all that anxious
to campaign. He has given only one speech - at the
Republican convention in August - and attended
only one event with Dole in the general election cam-
paign so far. Add to that a private breakfast with Dole
at a Watergate Hotel restaurant in Washington last
week, and the result weighs in far lighter than the
"I am not an active working politician. I have a pri-
vate life. What I have said I would do is support the
senator out at the convention and from time to time
make appearances," Powell told reporters here. "I am
not an active, on-the-road Republican. That was the
choice I made, living my private life. It's a choice that
has worked out good."
A Powell role is "still up in the j
air," said one Dole aide. There has
been "discussion of a role," the aide I a
said, but Powell has not been offered .i
any specific job. a tv
It was no surprise that Dole want-
ed to bring Powell here, for Ohio is politic
an absolute must-win state for the
Republican candidate - one inf

Clinton by a margin of between nine
and 14 points, judging by recent
And Clinton was conceding nothing in the state,
appearing at a rally in Dayton, only 44 miles to the
north, only a few hours after Dole's rally here.
"Here, a little more than a year ago, the leaders of
Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia came together through

Debate persists on higher speed limits
WASHINGTON - Since the federal government let states raise highway speed
limits last winter, at least eight states that did so have seen increases in highw~ay
deaths, an Associated Press survey found.
Yet, four other states that raised limits actually saw fatal accidents drop slightl .
The conflicting statistics have led the American Automobile Association and t
government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to caution that it's
too soon to draw firm conclusions. Many states, for instance, have yet to gather
data since raising speed limits.
Many troopers out on the roads, however, echo Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Robert
Flowers, who says he's seeing more damage from high-speed crashes: "It opens
vehicles up. Doors come off, windows come in."
A little more than half the states have increased limits on some highways since
Congress ended the federal cap of 55 miles per hour - 65 mph on rural interstates.
Before the change, highway deaths had been increasing for the previous
three years, highway safety groups note. The increases that have occurred
since might be attributable to bad weather or higher rates of drunkend
Many officials estimate it could take up to three years to get good data. Yetin
some cases, the increases are startling and are worrying state officials.
lauded Gore's debate
performance and Gore
blasted the Republicans for proposing to cut feder-
al spending on research.
"Last night, it was Al Gore who sacked the quar-
terback," Clinton declared.
As Clinton announced a new $500 million initiative
to spur the creation of the next-generation Internet,
Gore declared that "last night Jack Kemp and I debat-
ed the future. This morning, Bill Clinton and I are
building the future."
Yesterday's trip was Clinton's fifth campaign visit to
Ohio in search of its 21 electoral votes, and he has
scheduled a visit to Cleveland next week.
