Chris Emery put down the phone, jammed his fingers into his hair and bowed his head. It was a private moment to absorb sudden emotions -- nerves, pain, pride.Emery, administrator of the Howard County Council, is best known locally for his battles with Councilman C. Vernon Gray. But the phone call was from a U.S. Senate investigator asking about his other life -- his lost life -- as a White House usher at the elbows of three presidents and their families.More than two years ago, White House officials requested Emery's confidential FBI file.

Gov. Douglas Wilder was expected to do well in Maryland's early-bird presidential primary. A recent poll showed him leading all Democrats, with strong support coming from blacks in Prince George's County near the governor's home state of Virginia. With Wilder out, Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, who came in second in that poll, is the front runner. He has more money, a better organization and, in Maryland and elsewhere, strong support from elected Democratic officials. Eighteen Maryland state senators and 36 delegates have already endorsed him. With Wilder on the sidelines, Clinton, the only Democratic presidential candidate with a history of winning large-scale black support, has suddenly become formidable in what may be the most influential Maryland primary in years.

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."
