St. James will save him.St. James will heal him and make him strong.St. James Baker will lay his hands upon the troubled brow of George Bush and make him whole again.He has done it before.In 1988, they called George Bush a wimp. But St. James changed all that.Ably assisted by Roger Ailes and Lee Atwater -- the Bobbsey Twins as conceived by Darth Vadar -- James Baker did what it took.And it took Willie Horton and the Pledge to the Flag and rumors that Dukakis was crazy.It took dirt. It took mud.But none of that mud ever splattered on Baker.

Absent from U.S. media encomia for recently deceased former Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze is any mention of the historic deal he reached with his U.S. counterpart James Baker in 1990 ensuring that the Soviet empire would collapse "with a whimper, not a bang" (Mr. Baker's words). Mr. Baker keeps repeating that the Cold War "could not have ended peacefully without Shevardnadze. " But he and others are silent on the quid pro quo . The quid was Moscow's agreement to swallow the bitter pill of a reunited Germany in NATO; the quo was a U.S. promise not to "leapfrog" NATO over Germany farther East.

WHO LOST Kuwait? So far that question has served as a quaint footnote to the news from the Persian Gulf; but it could become a deadly serious matter, as one can see by the cautious wriggling maneuvers already undertaken by Secretary of State James Baker.For now, the investigation into the matter has been almost lighthearted, as people grimace over this and that ''dug up from the recent past in praise of Saddam Hussein.''The good words are by no means confined to the administration's diplomatic corps, even though the best-known comments were delivered to Saddam by our disappearing ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie.

Although he's spent only three years as a professional, 29-year-old Lamont Pearson might already be nearing the age when many boxers enter the twilight of their careers. But the Capitol Heights native, who is both fleet of foot and hand, hasn't shown signs of slowing down. To the contrary, the junior lightweight is picking up speed, having fought four times in 1998 and five times in 1999. Tonight at the Showplace Arena in Upper Marlboro, Pearson (13-0-1, seven knockouts) will fight for the sixth time this year against Nicaragua's Alfonso Rodriguez (13-6, six knockouts)

Maybe it is because of the polls.Or maybe it was just me.But I have never seen George Bush look as old as he looked on Friday.All presidents age rapidly in office. But they age more rapidly when the polls are bad.George Bush's polls are very bad. And when he walked into the White House briefing room for his news conference, I thought he looked about 80 instead of the 68 he is.His face was drawn, and there were deep vertical grooves under each cheekbone.His eyes seemed to sit even deeper in their sockets, and his suit jacket gaped at the neck, giving the impression that he had lost a lot of weight.

WASHINGTON - With continued instability in Iraq posing one of the biggest threats to his re-election, President Bush tapped yesterday a trusted family troubleshooter, former Secretary of State James A. Baker III, to enlist support from major world leaders for Iraq's transition to self-governance. The White House said Baker's assignment will be to "forge an international consensus" on restructuring Iraq's crippling $120 billion international debt, a key hurdle in putting the country on a sound economic footing before the U.S. occupation ends.

Walter Isaac and Diane Lindsey can't wait to tear down the ramshackle Pasadena house they bought last week to make room for their red-brick dream home.There's one small problem -- it's occupied.Two men, relatives of the former owner, say they have no intention of leaving the single-story ranch house near the Lake Shore Athletic Complex, even though the place has no running water or electricity.The dispute, only a week old, now involves lawyers and real estate agents and could require court intervention.

YOU have attacked my patriotism," counterpunched Bill Clinton, in the most dramatic moment of the first presidential debate of 1992.President Bush had carefully said that Mr. Clinton's organizing anti-war demonstrations abroad as a youth was "a question of character and judgment," and claimed not to be impugning his patriotism.Mr. Clinton was well prepared. He defined the president's attack as a low blow, and delivered the cry of foul he had rehearsed: "When Joe McCarthy went around this country attacking people's patriotism, he was wrong . . . and a senator from Connecticut stood up to him named Prescott Bush.

GEORGE Bush privately assured Bill Clinton that he would not criticize the new president during the first year of his term. I cannot attribute that to any source, but trust me. And Mr. Bush has kept his word.But in what may be an unspoken quid pro quo, the Clinton administration has moved to quash any revelations about Mr. Bush's Iraqgate scandal.You remember Iraqgate: the White House corruption of Agriculture's loan guarantee program to slip foreign aid billions through an Italian bank to Saddam Hussein, which he used to finance his secret nuclear buildup.
