WASHINGTON -- President Clinton's private eye is no trench-coat-toting gumshoe with his feet propped on a cluttered desk and a whiskey bottle in his bottom drawer.No, Terry F. Lenzner, the aggressive lawyer-turned-sleuth who was hauled before a grand jury this week by the Whitewater independent counsel, heads one of the nation's top investigative outfits. It's a firm that has held up its magnifying glass for Fortune 500 companies, Mike Tyson, political candidates of all -- stripes, and now, the embattled Clinton White House.

At the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, when the Clinton administration was consumed with damage control, a White House aide reached out to Maryland Gov. Parris N. Glendening and asked the fellow Democrat to back off his criticism of the president, according to a trove of documents released Friday by the Clinton Presidential Library. President Bill Clinton's former director of intergovernmental affairs, Mickey Ibarra, wrote in a Sept. 7, 1998, memo that he spoke to Glendening the day before and "delivered our message (it does not help any of us to pile on)

SHORTLY before Monica Lewinsky began her White House internship in 1995, I completed a four-month-long internship there. Since news broke last week about allegations of a sexual affair between Ms. Lewinsky and President Clinton, I've intently followed the story, and reflected on my White House memories.At least one element of the unfolding story seems misleading. In attempting to find clues about Ms. Lewinsky's behavior to determine whether they suggest an affair, the media have reported that sources describe Ms. Lewinsky as ''infatuated'' with the president, ''star struck'' and even ''a stalker.

So Maryland Speaker of the House Michael E. Busch and fellow "high-rolling" Democrats guffawed at Bill Clinton's joking about the contrast between public housing and the "posh estate" when they were gathered Tuesday night for a million-dollar fund-raiser, reveling in "one of Maryland's wealthiest communities" ( "Brown gets boost from Bill Clinton," Oct. 1). And this from the Democratic Party that likes to portray itself as so caring and compassionate, yet is so entrenched in one-party rule as to be only beholden to millionaire donors and lobbyists.

It was one of those TV images that leaps out of the clutter and burns its way into that place in the back of the brain called shared memory: Bill Clinton in Blues Brothers' sunglasses, honking away on that big tenor sax, while a million late-night bright lights danced and glistened off his golden horn. It was hot. It was symbolic. And it was resonant all right.Clinton's saxophone-playing appearance on "The Arsenio Hall Show" in June, though, was widely mocked at the time by many members of the we-know-everything gang covering national politics.

WASHINGTON -- It was the biggest crisis of Bill Clinton's first term and the most violent of his career:Hundreds of angry Cuban refugees, breaking out of Arkansas's sprawling Fort Chaffee army reservation in 1980, attacked state police and National Guardsmen with broken pieces of sidewalk and even live snakes before being driven back inside by batons and buckshot, where full-scale rioting and burning ensued.Vastly outnumbered police, meanwhile, kept a worried watch on an inflamed local populace ready to defend family and property with all the guns and ammunition at hand.

WASHINGTON -- James B. McDougal, a former Clinton business partner who had been cooperating with independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr in the Whitewater investigation, died yesterday in a federal prison hospital in Texas. He was 58.McDougal was serving a 3 1/2 -year sentence after Starr's office successfully prosecuted him on fraud charges stemming from the collapse of Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan, a McDougal-owned Arkansas thrift that cost taxpayers $60 million when it failed.His death appears to reduce the legal risks to President Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton, and was a clear setback to Starr and his prosecutors, who huddled in their offices last night after McDougal's death was announced.

WASHINGTON -- With the switch of at least three votes, the Congressional Black Caucus made clear yesterday that it would come to President Clinton's rescue on the crime bill.After a meeting at the White House with Mr. Clinton, three Black Caucus members who had voted against bringing the $33 billion measure up for final House vote last week announced that they had succumbed to his appeals to save not only the crime bill but perhaps his presidency."He was selling his presidency, the party and the fact that we will not get a better bill than this," said Rep. Charles B. Rangel, a New York Democrat who found Mr. Clinton persuasive.

The Baltimore Sun Subbing for new grandmother Hillary Clinton on late notice, former President Bill Clinton became the star attraction Tuesday night at a fundraiser for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Anthony G. Brown at a posh estate in Potomac. The Brown campaign said the former president helped Brown draw about 450 guests and raise more than $1.2 million for his campaign against Republican Larry Hogan in the Nov. 4 election. Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democratic front-runner for the 2016 presidential nomination, had been the expected headliner at the big-ticket event at an estate in one of Maryland's wealthiest communities.

New grandmother and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton has decided to stay home in New York with daughter Chelsea today, skipping a planned high-dollar fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown.  Instead, former President Bill Clinton will headline the event in her place.  "I am very grateful to President Clinton for changing his schedule to travel to Maryland and attend our event this evening," Lt.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to host what might be the single biggest fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown tonight in Potomac. The former secretary of state and potential presidential candidate is headlining Brown's 5 p.m. event at a wooded 2.8-acre estate in the wealthy Washington suburb. Tickets cost $4,000 each - even more for VIP tickets, according to an event invitation. Brown campaign manager Justin Schall said as many as 500 people might attend and the campaign expects to raise more than $1 million - a sum greater than that garnered during a May fundraiser for Brown featuring former President Bill Clinton.

In the rare moments when he speaks candidly about running for president, Gov. Martin O'Malley uses phrases such as "fundamentally newer" and "new way of leadership" to describe his approach - language intended to highlight the data-driven management style for which he is widely recognized. But it isn't hard to read another, more subtle message between the lines: The young, guitar-slinging governor represents a more youthful crop of Democrats, while the presumed front-runner for the nomination in 2016, Hillary Clinton, might struggle to do so. As he winds down his final months in Annapolis and crisscrosses the country in anticipation of a full-scale national campaign, O'Malley has delicately tried to draw contrasts with the former first lady, senator and secretary of state without appearing confrontational - or even using her name.

After playing at being a TV correspondent and doing some of the worst on-air network reporting I have seen in 30 years of writing about media, Chelsea Clinton is declaring victory and moving on, she told People magazine. Here's an indication of how People reported this "exclusive" news: After not quite three years as a special correspondent for NBC News - and with just a little while until she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expected to become parents - the former first daughter is now leaving that position, she tells PEOPLE in a statement, "to continue focusing on my work at the Clinton Foundation and as Marc and I look forward to welcoming our first child.

Hillary Clinton's tactical retreat in her soft apology and meet-up with President Obama at Martha's Vineyard, after her ill-timed criticism of his "failure" in aiding Syrian refugees, indicates she may not be quite ready to put her best foot forward for the 2016 presidential race. Her remark in her interview with The Atlantic magazine, otherwise fulsome in praise of him, came at a time when Mr. Obama is struggling with a full plate of foreign policy woes. Inadvertently or not, it seemed politically self-serving, as she seems bent on shoring up her own acceptance with the more liberal elements in her own party.

The ticket was purchased on Aug. 27, and the winner now has 182 days to claim the prize, Everett said.

Jonathan Strum's commentary on Hillary Clinton's presidential prospects resonated deeply with me ("Dynasty or democracy?" Aug. 18). We have had quite enough of the Bush and Clinton families already. For the sake of a healthy republic it would be best, as he points out so well, if name recognition and money did not determine governance. I think that there is enough dysfunction in our political system already. We don't need to add to it the dysfunction of these political families.

Thank you to William L. Jacobsen Jr. for his commentary in The Baltimore Sun ( "President Hillary Clinton," July 31). As a woman reader of The Sun, I'm feeling as though this commentary is the first draft for one to be written on Wednesday, November 9, 2016. I'm also feeling that the same lingo about President Barack Obama will be a tagline for Ms. Clinton. If we didn't want Barack Obama to become president of the United States we are racist. If we don't want Hilary Clinton to be president of the United States we are misogynists.
