Glendening talks to Clinton, finds him 'in good spirits'

President Clinton and Gov. Parris N. Glendening are on speaking terms again.

A month after the governor criticized the president's behavior in the Monica Lewinsky scandal and skipped the president's visit to a Montgomery County elementary school, Glendening is telling voters about a telephone conversation he had with the president Thursday night.

At a campaign event in Prince George's County yesterday, the governor didn't go into much detail about what he and Clinton discussed. He said he called Clinton at the suggestion of Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and that, all things considered, the president is "in very good spirits."
