Conservatives disagree on
merits of Powell GOP run

WASHINGTON (AP) - The allure
of Colin Powell to Republicans hungry
for an inspirational standard-bearer has
ignited squabbling among party con-
servatives, who are deeply split over
whether to welcome or disparage the
popular retired general.
Powell's emergence also revives a
debate over whether the GOP should be
a "big tent" welcoming a variety of
views or should hold to a firm conser-
vative ideology that was solidified with
the party's takeover of the House and
Senate last fall.
Even though Powell remains cagey
about whether he will actually run for
President, many Republican activists
are aghast that fellow conservative stal-
warts are urging him into the party's
nomination process.
Eyeing opinion polls that show
Powell would run strongly in the GOP
field, they worry he might attract Re-
publican voters who don't even agree
with him on issues like abortion, affir-
mative action and welfare. Powell has
expressed moderate views on those
questions that appear out of step with
the party's congressional momentum.
But some conservatives seem willing
to overlook that in their quest for a strong
candidate. Their embrace of the former
Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman is prompt-
ing a pre-emptive campaign against
Powell by more rigid conservatives.
"I'm taking some heat from some

Former Housing Secretary Jack
Kemp and GOP conservative analyst
William Kristol also have urged a
Powell candidacy. Arianna Huffington,
a party activist and wife of unsuccess-
ful California Senate candidate Michael
Huffington, lavished praise on him last
Huffington accused the GOP front-
runner, Senate Majority leader Bob
Dole, of "political hackmanship," and
said in a Wall Street Journal column
that even though she doesn't agree with
all Powell's views, he "has made it
impossible to continue accepting a lack-
luster standard-bearer for the Republi-
can Party."
Spearheading the countercharge is
Gary Bauer, head of the Focus on the
Family group.
"It's curious to me that some Republi-
can leaders are flirting with a candidate
who has positions the exact opposite of
what have been the winning issues," in
last year's elections, Bauer said.
He faxed a memo to Republican lead-
ers last week saying that despite Powell's
leadership and military record, his views
"contain enough ammunition to rattle
economic and social conservatives alike."
Others share his opinion of Powell.
"All his views are out of step with the
coalition we have built over the years,"
said Paul Weyrich, a leading conserva-
tive voice and president of National
Empowerment Television.


Pope John Paul i will make his fourth visit to the United States this week.
Pope to rase famia
isofsues i visit to U.S.


Los Angeles Times
With a string of diplomatic initia-
tives behind him and the U.S. presiden-
tial election looming, Pope John Paul II
will be standing squarely in the inter-
section of politics and religion when he
visits the United States this week.
Never far from controversy and of-
ten in its vortex, history's most trav-
eled pope is scheduled to arrive in
Newark, N.J., Wednesday for a five-
day trip that will take him to the United
Nations and to pastoral visits with
Catholics in New York, Newark, N.J.,
and Baltimore.
On his fourth visit to the United States
and second to the United Nations, he is
expected again to raise issues of
overarching importance to him -the
sanctity of life, the dignity of humans,
the importance of families, the impera-
tives of peace and the dangers of a
"culture of death" whose manifesta-
tions are abortion, euthanasia and con-
While the message is as old as the
church itself and certainly a hallmark of
John Paul's 17-year pontificate, the
pope's words are expected to take on
added interest and currency.
Church commentators and Vatican
watchers expect members of the reli-
gious right as well as conservative Re-
publicans-and Democrats determined
not to cede moral high ground to oppo-
nents -to try to align themselves with
papal pronouncements, at least those
that fit the growing rhetoric over "tradi-
tional values."

pontiff when his airliner, Shepherd I,

port. Vice President Al Gore will bid an

friends on the right," said former Edu-
cation Secretary William Bennett, who
has not formally endorsed Powell but is
a friend and said he would consider it.
Bennett, author of the best-selling
"Book of Virtues," astonished many
conservatives when he suggested he
could overlook Powell's support of
abortion rights and focus on his other
qualities - leadership, family values
and patriotism.
"I think he could wallop Clinton,"
Bennett said in an interview.

even made inquiries about a papal ad-
dress to a joint session of Congress,
only to discover that, as a matter of
policy, the pope does not address na-
tional legislatures.
Informed papal observers expect John
Paul to follow up on recent Vatican
initiatives at U.N. conferences in Cairo,
Egypt, and Beijing by hammering home
his views on such issues as the role of
women and the need for social and
economic justice for the poor.
"He's an international moral super-
power. This is a bully pulpit to speak
from," said Father Thomas J. Reese, a
respected Vatican watcher at
Woodstock Theological Center at
Georgetown University in Washing-
ton. The pope's arrival will fall 30
years to the day after Paul VI became
the first pontiff to address the United
Originally scheduled to address the
United Nations last October, John Paul
postponed that trip on doctor's orders
to give his broken right leg more time to
heal. With trips to the Philippines and
Africa under his belt since then, the 75-
year-old pope appears to have recov-
ered nicely.
On his 68th trip abroad, John Paul
will celebrate Mass at New York's Cen-
tral Park, Aqueduct Racetrack in
Queens, N.Y., and Oriole Park at
Camden Yards in Baltimore. He also
will recite the rosary in St. Patrick's
Cathedral and meet informally with
Jewish and Protestant leaders in New
York. In Baltimore, John Paul will ad-
dress seminarians and talk with the lead-
ership of Catholic Relief Services, a
humanitarian agency.
If the pope is physically stronger
than a year ago, so is his diplomatic
hand, according to some observers.
