Clinton's long-term reputation not scarred, scholar nanel savs
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON - President
Clinton can take heart:
Impeachment may have sullied
his legacy, but it will do little
damage to his reputation.
That was the conclusion
Monday of a panel of scholars,
who said even the greatest presi
dents were maligned in office
and became far more attractive
once they were examined
through history’s long lens.
“We’re a pretty cruel country,”
said historian Allen Weinstein,
founder of the nonprofit Center
for Democracy. “We judge harsh
ly, but we’re pretty good about
forgiving. In that sense, Clinton
does have some comfort.”
Panelists, convened as part of
a forum on the American presi
dency, noted that save for the

impeachment, Clinton’s experi
ences in the White House are in
line with that of most modern
His reputation, like those of
his predecessors, will remain in
flux for a long time, they said.
“It’s the most difficult job in
the world,” said Boston
University history professor
Robert Dallek, author of a biogra
phy of Lyndon B. Johnson.
“None of these men are
saints. They’re not eager to ‘fess
up to it. Who is?”
Of course, presidential repu
tations often are shaped by
something over which they have
no control: the actions of their
successors. As an example,
Dallek cited what might happen
if George W. Bush should be
elected this fall and the country
fell into a recession.
“My gosh, Bill Clinton’s repu
tation is going to go to the moon!”
About the best parallel for
Clinton is Richard Nixon, the
panelists said. While Nixon’s lega
cy is that he is the only president
to resign, his actual reputation is
undergoing "a process of
redemption,” said Tom Wicker, a
New York Times columnist dur
ing Nixon’s presidency.
"As the years go on, (Nixon’s
actions) tend to take on greater
weight,” Wicker said. "Richard
Nixon, prior to Watergate, was
not really the inconsequential
president. He was not totally an
Like Nixon, Clinton is unlike
ly to face prosecution after he
leaves office, but that alone will
not suffice, Wicker said. "He will
do enough to damage his own
reputation without that,” Wicker
Dallek noted a 1988 poll in
which Johnson, who drew much
vilification for his handling of the
Vietnam War, was consistently
ranked last among presidents for
on-the-job performance. By
February of this year, however, a
C-SPAN poll showed Johnson at
10th overall, and second only to
Abraham Lincoln on matters of
“We judge harshly, but we’re pretty good about
forgiving. In that sense, Clinton does have some
civil rights, courtesy of his Great
Despite that strong legacy,
Johnson’s reputation swings back
and forth, due to a tendency to
examine his presidency for guid
ance on foreign policy errors and
“His reputation in the future
will be volatile,” Dallek said. “He
will become kind of a touch
Then there’s Harry Truman,
who earned incredible scorn for
his blunt style. “He left the White
House demoralized, depressed
and discredited,” Weinstein said.
As an ex-president, Truman’s
blunt assessments became
Center for Democracy founder
rather appealing. His statement
that Nixon was a “shifty-eyed
liar” - and the fact that Truman
died during the Watergate scan
dal - touched off “a minor
Truman craze” that is now help
ing Truman evolve into some
thing of a presidential standard
bearer, Weinstein said.
Douglas Brinkley, professor
of history at the University of
New Orleans, said former presi
dents now feel a need to burnish
their records after they leave the
White House because of the way
Jimmy Carter re-shaped the role
of the ex-president. That, in turn,
creates added pressure for
Dr. Laura's daytime talk show runs without a hitch
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK - No one stormed
the studio. The host didn't breathe
Defying months of protests by
gay-rights groups, Dr. Laura
Schlessinger, radio’s ethics voice,
launched her daytime TV talk
show Monday. Peace prevailed on
Schlessinger has been a target
of gay activists since her public
dismissal of homosexuality as
“deviant” and dangerous to socie
ty. She has also railed on the radio
against abortion, divorce, femi
nism and interfaith marriage.
But for her first TV show, the
syndicated “Dr. Laura” chose a
troubling but not so controversial
topic: “Teens and Drugs.”
“What is to blame?’1
Schlessinger posed at the top of
the show. “Whatever it is, I’m sick
of it, I’m very worried and I want it
With that in mind, she led into
a no-nonsense, consensus-seek
Although the format and
arena setting of the Los Angeles
based series resemble those of a
dozen talk-show counterparts,
one difference stood out:
Schlessinger’s guests were polite
and well-dressed. Those who had
made mistakes were apparently
on the mend.
In other words, Schlessinger
puts a premium on solutions and
contrition. Her first guest, a moth
er named Kristin, described the
drastic stand she took by sending
her teen away for a year of drug
therapy. How did daughter Lauren
feel on getting roused in the mid
dle of the night by two attendants
with handcuffs? Mad? Scared?
“I was happy," Lauren said.
The show sparked a protest
outside Paramount Studios from
activists who waved signs and
chanted slogans like “Two-four
