Washington. -- A few blacks have expressed concern that the Democratic ticket is composed of ''two white Southern males,'' a criticism I regard as silly and meaningless.The three white presidents who have done the most to liberate and lift the level of life of black people in my lifetime were Harry Truman from Jim Crow Missouri, Lyndon B. Johnson from segregated Texas and Jimmy Carter from Georgia, with its atrocious history of violent racism.The two presidents who have done the most damage to black aspirations in this generation have been Ronald Reagan from California and George Bush from Connecticut.

President Clinton's first official visit to Western Europe calls to mind some incendiary comments made by former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt about how Americans go about choosing their leaders. The time was the early Eighties, soon after Ronald Reagan took office. Mr. Schmidt was in his usual arrogant state of mind.His disdain for President Jimmy Carter was already legendary. What was new was his low opinion of Mr. Reagan, then embroiled in the backlash of some unfortunate remarks about how he would conduct a nuclear defense of Western Europe.

Devastating defeat for the Democrats in the Texas Senate race is just the latest bad news for star-crossed President Clinton. It lowers his majority to six votes in the 100-member Senate, not much of a margin in a chamber that has already killed his jobs-stimulus bill. And it forces him to give more ground on his embattled economics package just as the House Black Caucus has had enough of liberal retreat after the Lani Guinier fiasco.Clearly, the administration is in peril. It is one thing to lose a minor $16 billion spending bill or an assistant attorney general.

With all the majesty this old republic will permit itself, a young William Jefferson Clinton took his oath as president of the United States yesterday and straightaway proclaimed a stirring mission for his generation. "There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right about America," he declared from the flag-draped west portico of the Capitol as he issued a call for change, sacrifice and service.It was a poignant moment as George Bush and his generation were given a parting accolade for having triumphed over the Depression, fascism and communism and then politely dismissed as icons of "deadlock and drift."

CAN THE GOVERNOR of one of the smallest, poorest states in the South win the Democratic nomination for president? Can he if he is an intellectual, a one-time Rhodes Scholar, a Yale Law graduate? If he has a certain detachment, a sense of humor about his ambition?Gov. Bill Clinton of Arkansas is about to find out. He has scheduled a press conference for Thursday to announce his plans, and nobody doubts that he is going to go.After a speech to the National Newspaper Association here, he was surrounded by local reporters.

WASHINGTON -- Although the rhetoric was somewhat more polished and extravagant, President Clinton's inaugural address sounded remarkably like the speeches he delivered all through the long campaign that brought him into the White House.If there was an overriding theme, it was Clinton's emphasis on generational change -- the same emphasis that clearly was responsible for his success Nov. 3 in reversing a trend of the three previous elections and gave him a majority of the support of young people.

REMEMBER? It wasn't Watergate; it was the coverup. And Richard Nixon could fire H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman in a failed effort to save himself. Now history repeats. It really isn't Whitewater; it's the coverup. And Bill Clinton, you can be sure, cannot fire his wife Hillary.So what to do? Week after week, despite a White House effort in lawyerly stonewalling, the impression grows that the first lady has a selective memory, an active past in litigious matters affecting her husband, an imperious attitude toward possible conflicts of interest and a tendency to drag close associates into the controversies over Travelgate, Whitewater, Madison S&L, Castle Grande, Vince Foster's death and other matters that have congressional committees on the prowl.
