DEE DEE MYERS, President Clinton's first press secretary and the prototype (sort of) for The West Wing's C.J. Cregg, feels like an old firehouse dog. The challenges presented by the terrorist attacks on New York City and the Pentagon and the elusive threat of anthrax in the nation's capital and beyond have kick-started the adrenaline and the butterflies, and she'd love to be behind the podium in the White House press room giving out news instead of...

Democrat businessman John Delaney won the endorsement of President Bill Clinton on Monday in his bid for Maryland's 6th Congressional District. Clinton's endorsement is a significant one for the Potomac financier, who has widely been seen as having less institutional Democratic support in the competitive race than his leading opponent, state Sen. Rob Garagiola. The announcement also comes as Garagiola's campaign has questioned Delaney's loyalty to the party, noting a political contribution to Maryland Republican Rep. Andy Harris in 2010.

WASHINGTON -- Courting women's support for health care reform, President Clinton called on state governments, insurance companies, medical facilities and businesses to adopt policies that widen access to appropriate and affordable mammography. He also pledged additional government support for breast cancer research."These resources can save the lives of countless women," the president said during an East Room ceremony as he signed a proclamation declaring today National Mammography Day.A September draft of the health care plan would provide free mammograms only to women 50 and older -- and only at two-year intervals.

WASHINGTON -- President Clinton telephoned Vincent W. Foster Jr. the night before he committed suicide in part because he knew that the deputy White House counsel was "having a rough time" at work, the White House said yesterday.The statement, confirming a report in Newsweek magazine, appeared somewhat at variance with a previous White House assertion that no one had known Mr. Foster was feeling troubled. But Dee Dee Myers, the White House press secretary, said the president had been aware only that it had been a difficult week for the office of the White House counsel, where Mr. Foster was the second-ranking official.

WASHINGTON -- The Clinton administration has intensified efforts to gain U.N. support for a U.S.-led invasion of Haiti, and U.S. officials privately said they hoped a vote on the issue could be held by next Friday in the U.N. Security Council.While declining to use the word "invasion," officials at the White House, State Department and United Nations said the administration is pressing Security Council members to authorize "all means necessary" to restore democracy to Haiti.The officials said that such language was used in U.N. resolutions preceding the 1991 attack in the Persian Gulf.

VANCOUVER British Columbia -- In a subtle but calculated attempt to patch up his rocky relations with the U.S. military establishment, President Clinton went running yesterday morning with an Army general who'd been insulted while at the White House.The officer, Lt. Gen. Barry McCaffrey, is the most decorated man in the U.S. armed services. He was awarded the prestigious Distinguished Service Cross twice for valorous service in separate tours in Vietnam and was the officer who directed the victorious U.S. ground forces in Kuwait during the Persian Gulf war.General McCaffrey, special assistant to Gen. Colin L. Powell, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was visiting the White House on business shortly after Mr. Clinton was inaugurated when he said good day to a woman he presumed to be a Clinton aide.
