Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke's endorsement of his fellow Rhodes scholar, Bill Clinton, may nail down a number of Baltimore votes in next Tuesday's Maryland primary, but the key to the election could well lie in the Washington suburbs. That's where one third of the Democratic votes will be cast. That's where politicians who have signed on to the Clinton campaign have good reason to wonder just how the party rank-and-file will vote.To wonder and to worry. Voting patterns in New Hampshire made it pretty clear that the more upscale and suburban a precinct, the more likely it will wind up in the camp of Paul E. Tsongas, currently Mr. Clinton's chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination.

To make sure he would remember the overriding issue in the presidential campaign, a Clinton strategist posted the following note on his office wall: "The economy, stupid!" After Mr. Clinton's convincing victory, one of the president-elect's Baltimore supporters said he was thinking of posting another note to measure the new administration's performance. It would contain this pledge Mr. Clinton made to Ebony magazine: "Creating high-wage jobs will be my top priority. I have proposed a national economic strategy for America that will invest more than $50 billion annually over the next four years to put America back to work."

BILL Clinton will take office with high hopes and good will, but his presidency will stand or fall on whether he fixes the economy. His first task is to sort out the long-term "change" he champions from the short-term economic urgencies.As John Maynard Keynes aptly observed, "In the long run we are all dead." It is the short run where people are losing jobs, homes and hopes. And Mr. Clinton will soon lose his political mandate if recovery is not forthcoming. Mr. Clinton courageously resisted the fashionable (and mistaken)

Hillary Rodham Clinton's extensive visit to South Asia, which starts Friday, may not look very innovative at first glance. After all, first ladies have traveled abroad before, and Mrs. Clinton is just back from a conference in Copenhagen. Still, her trip to five South Asian countries holds the promise of some valuable dividends, both for the United States and for the countries she's visiting.Many South Asians have what is often called a love-hate relationship with this country. Actually, it's more of an admiration-envy attitude.

President-elect Clinton and Democratic leaders on Capital Hill are saying all the right things as they prepare for a "new era" in which their party will control both the executive and legislative branches of government. They talk of the end of the "Cold War" between Congress and the White House and try to smooth away the rough edges of contentious issues that have arisen -- often gratuitously -- in the first fortnight after their Nov. 3 election victory.The American people, however, have every right to adopt a "show me" attitude.

In Friday's editions, The Sun incorrectly described attorney John D. Holum, one of several key advisers to President-elect Bill Clinton, as a registered lobbyist with Congress for utilities and railroads. Mr. Holum says he represents utility companies on regulations, litigation and enforcement at the state and local level but is no longer registered as a lobbyist before the Congress.The Sun regrets the error.As he prepares to move to the White House, President-elect Bill Clinton is getting advice from a broad network of people, some of whom may join his administration.

WASHINGTON -- When President Clinton looked into the camera and told the nation that the message of his missile attack on Baghdad was "Don't Tread on Us," he sent a signal with much broader implications for his presidency.The original line, printed on a Navy flag raised in 1775 by Lt. John Paul Jones, pictured a rattlesnake and read, "Don't Tread on Me." When Jeremy Posner, a speech writer with the National Security Council, brought it in a draft to Mr. Clinton, the president seized on it immediately, officials said.

BILL Clinton has shown he has the greatest gift a politician can own, better than smarts or savvy or steel. He has the gift of luck.For President Clinton, the astounding peace between Israel and the Palestinians is like hitting a zillion-dollar lottery without paying for a ticket.Fourteen years ago on a bright, sunny day on the White House lawn, euphoric Jimmy Carter raised the hands of Israel's Menachem Begin and Egypt's Anwar Sadat in triumph."Let there be no more war between Israelis and Arabs," Sadat said in an ecstatic, empty prophecy.

WHEN Gov. Bill Clinton was campaigning in Maryland early last month, the Democratic presidential nominee placed two phone calls to Gov. William Donald Schaefer. The calls were never accepted or returned.When Mr. Schaefer sponsored a fundraiser for the Maryland Democratic Party's coordinated campaign last week, he addressed the importance of electing a strong congressional TC delegation he can work with, but he never mentioned Mr. Clinton or Al Gore.And at a recent news conference, Mr. Schaefer declined to express a preference for president except to say that H. Ross Perot ought to go fly a kite (or whatever Texas billionaires do)
