WASHINGTON -- There is always a risk for anyone who writes a "presidents who have known me" book. Consider Dick Morris and his new account of his role as political adviser to President Clinton before Mr. Morris's fall from power in a sex scandal last summer.Mr. Morris says all the right things about Mr. Clinton. The &L president is really the one who made the critical decisions. The president used opinion polls to find avenues of appeal to voters, but certainly not to determine policy on national directions.

After dumping Sarah Palin and Dick Morris, Fox News has hired Scott Brown and now Herman Cain as a contributor. The first three moves made some sense, especially the two firings. Palin's fling with fame was over, and the sleaze attached to Morris had reached the point where it was seriously hurting the Fox brand. But the hiring of Cain, which was reported Friday, feels like an act of desperation, a move made in reaction to sinking ratings rather than one done as part of a larger vision.

CHICAGO -- Scottish poet Bobby Burns sure had it right. The best laid plans of the Bill Clinton campaign for a totally harmonious and trouble-free Democratic National Convention suddenly went agley on the final day with the embarrassing resignation of chief political strategist Dick Morris.The report of his involvement with a prostitute to whom he was alleged to have shared campaign speeches came on the day President Clinton's acceptance address was to cap a triumphant week on the campaign trail and in the convention hall.

PRESIDENT CLINTON's acceptance speech last night was loaded with unforeseen nuances as he stuck by the centrist, balanced-budget, welfare reform, families-first agenda urged on him by newly disgraced political guru, Dick Morris, the object of a sex scandal that left party loyalists dismayed but apparently still confident of their candidate's survivalist instincts.Despite this cloud over an otherwise exuberant Democratic National Convention, Mr. Clinton was at his oratorical best as he urged supporters to "build a bridge to the 21st century."

AS PRESIDENT CLINTON begins the last week of his widely anticipated romp to a second term, it is clear he is running a Dick Morris campaign without Dick Morris. While his disgraced political strategist writes a tell-all book that may make him a millionaire (such is celebrity life in America today), the president is sticking tightly to the Morris prescription for victory at the polls.Just yesterday, Mr. Clinton was trumpeting the 63 percent decline in annual deficits he achieved (a) through the 1993 tax hikes he never mentions, (b)

What does it tell us when a man seemingly lacking in normal human attachments has stunningly shrewd insights about the American people, our president and our political system?After wading through the disgraced political consultant Dick Morris' story of his stint as strategist for President Clinton's re-election campaign in "Behind the Oval Office," (Random House 359 pages $25.95) the reader may conclude that Morris' mind - unencumbered by ordinary commitments and convictions is uniquely capable of tapping into our collective subconscious.

Bulletin: Dick Morris, the president's chief campaign adviser, quits after being accused of sharing White House secrets with a $200-an-hour hooker.Public reaction: A few snickers, followed by a loud yawn. Within a couple of days, the story of Morris' misadventure goes out of the daily headlines.What's going on here? Have Americans become so blase, so cynical, that they don't care about a good sex scandal anymore? Not one that involves an unelected adviser whom nobody knew much about anyway.

Washington -- I HAVE NO idea who will prevail in the already endless 1996 presidential wars. But I'm pretty certain who will be everybody's all-purpose villain.His name is Dick Morris, a.k.a. Bill Clinton's Hidden Hand, Secret Guru and Midnight Svengali.If you've never heard of Dick Morris, join the club.He's a 47-year-old, Manhattan-bred hustler who is the Holy Ghost of politics -- operating everywhere, never seen. Where most consultants claw for publicity, Mr. Morris ducks talk shows, is rarely photographed or interviewed.

The reviews are starting to come in on Dick Morris' tattletale book, "Behind the Oval Office." The New York Times calls it "lively, readable and anecdotally rich." Even the White House has spoken: "fascinating reading" if at times "factually wrong."But if you're interested in a review from Sherry Rowlands, the prostitute who made Dick Morris famous outside the Beltway with her tabloid revelations of his foot fetish and propensity to share presidential phone calls, you'll have to wait. She's not about to spend $25.95 on it, and instead is waiting for a free copy that her own book agent has promised to send.

NEW YORK -- The affair, or affairs, of the president's main man, Dick Morris, is the kind of thing that gives cynicism a good name. By name or ''Anonymous,'' you can't make this stuff up, which is why Random House, the publisher of ''Primary Colors,'' is apparently willing to hand over $2.5 million to Mr. Morris for his dirty little secrets.Therein lies a tale with Freudian undertones. Normally, my idea of psychiatry in American politics owes less to Austrian scholarship than to George Washington Plunkitt, the Tammany Hall philosopher best known for saying, ''I seen my opportunities and I took them.

WASHINGTON -- What is wrong with what presidential campaign adviser Dick Morris is alleged to have done with a $200-per-hour prostitute? Why did Mr. Morris feel that he had to resign after reports of his dealings with Sherry Rowlands became front-page news?I certainly hope no one will suggest that what he is alleged to have done was wrong. By what or whose standard? And even if someone were to acknowledge that such a standard exists, we can't impose a moral code on people, can we?Pluralistic standardsThat's because there are some (like Mr. Morris)

CONVENTIONS ARE OVER and the campaign begins. As Bill Clinton enjoys a bounce rendered less than triumphant by the kinkiness of the president's deposed political strategist and the tobacco-growing past of his anti-smoking vice president, it is about time to get serious.But first, while memories are fresh, some observations about the San Diego Republicans and the Chicago Democrats:Bob Dole described himself as "a bridge to a time of tranquillity, faith and confidence in action." Well, when did an American born in 1923 ever know serenity after the age of 5?
