Bush, McCain spar repeatedly in Manchester debate'

Ihc W1'ashin gtn Post
MANCI 1ESTER, N.! 1. The two men lead-
ing the Republican pack in New Hampshire
sparred repeatedly - and sometimes in person-
al terms over taxes, Icderal spending and du-
CatiOn during a 90-minute debate last night
in a series of increasingly testy exchanges,
Tcxas Gov. George W Bush said Arizona Sen.
John McCain's tax proposal leaves too much
money in Washington and McCain charged that
Bush's school voucher plan would rob public

schools of federal money.
Bush, looking to close the polling gap with
McCain, accused McCain of crafting a tax plan
that "Al Gore would have written." McCain
immediately fired back: "If you're saying I'm
like Al Gore, you're spinning like Bill Clinton"
The final debate before "Tuesday's primary
here also found both men defending their anti-
abortion credentials. Earlier yesterday, McCain
was forced to correct an answer about what he
would do if his teen-age daughter told him she

were pregnant. Alan Keyes, the longshot candi-
date in the race, seized on the comment, saying
it "displayed a profound lack of understanding"
of the abortion issue.
"I'm proud of my pro-life record," replied
McCain, noting that he was the "only one" on
the stage here who had voted on the Senate floor
"for the preservation of life of the unborn."
But McCain drew a line on the question: "I
will not draw my children into this discussion"
Later in the session, McCain, a Vietnam pris-

oner of war, chastised Keyes: "I've seen enough
killing in my life. I know how precious human
life is and I don't need a lecture from you."
Steve Forbes, seeking to capitalize on his sec-
ond place finish to Bush in towa, charged that
the Texas governor's record on tax cuts, govern-
ment spending and education was far worse than
Bush has acknowledged - in some instances
even worse than the Clinton administration's.
"So many half stories, so little time," Bush
said in one of his trademark quips.

Bush said he has slowed the rate of state
spending in Texas more than any previous gov-
ernor and that public schools there are "meeting-.,,
the challenge" of educating minority students.
He said the people ofTexas "looked at the real
facts" and re-elected him by a landslide in 1998.
The five men, standing behind podiums, cut 4
wide swath yesterday night, moving from China
to foreign oil to whether the term "minority"
should be eliminated as the country moves from
majority white to majority minority.
