THE DECISION by Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga., not to seek re-election next year is another stunning blow to the Democratic Party and additional proof that if the party leadership doesn't abandon its liberal political and social agenda it may soon be relegated to permanent minority status. While many have spoken of the ''likelihood'' of Sam Nunn's re-election, polls show him favored by just 36 percent of registered voters.The figures testifying to the growing weakness of Democrats and their party are astounding.

Sen. Bill Bradley placed 120 telephone calls to people he thought deserved personal notice of his decision to retire from the Senate next year -- and, possibly, to run for president as a third-party candidate. Among them: Colin Powell, H. Ross Perot and Lowell Weicker.He didn't get through to the last two, both of whom have run for high office outside the two-party structure, but he did talk to General Powell. He, of course, is also being talked about as a presidential candidate in 1996. We suppose in due course the details of their conversation will come out. They may be meaningful and they may not be.What is definitely meaningful is the senator's decision not to seek re-election.

WASHINGTON -- After suggesting a compromise a couple of weeks ago over the role of gays in the military, Rep. Barney Frank was ridiculed by Queer Nation and rebuked by Sen. Sam Nunn.By taking the middle ground in the controversy, the Massachusetts congressman found himself under fire from two opposing positions.Mr. Frank suggested a variation of Mr. Nunn's proposal for a "don't ask, don't tell" policy in which military officials would not try to determine sexual orientation while gay men and women in the service would keep their preferences a secret.

THOUGH there are 1,035 days till the New Hampshire primary, the Inside-the-Beltway crowd has already started "covering" the 1996 presidential campaign. As I Noted here Monday, 20 Republicans have already been mentioned as probable candidates.You think that's silly? Some political journalists are already speculating about Democratic presidential candidates in 1996. For example, the Cleveland Plain Dealer carried this bit of punditry last month:"Here are the morning odds for 1996: Clinton (2 to 1)

WASHINGTON -- Twenty-one months ago, Los Angeles businessman David Mixner introduced about 20 of his fellow wealthy gay activists to a man who'd been a friend of his for 25 years -- Bill Clinton.At a private home in the Hollywood Hills, Mr. Clinton, then governor of Arkansas, assured the group that if elected president he would stand up for gay rights and pledged to rescind the ban on gays in the military.Impressed with Mr. Clinton, members of the group, known as Angle, endorsed him for president, encouraged other gays to do fTC the same and subsequently helped raised tens of thousands of dollars for his election.

"DEAR Emory Alumnus/a, These days of political unrest around the globe have demonstrated again how events in one nation can reorder the political and social dynamics by which the rest of the world operates."So began a letter I received from "Sam Nunn, '61C-'62L, Honorary National Chair" of Emory's new fund-raising drive. It was written just after political unrest in the Persian Gulf reordered his political dynamics. And when I say "reordered" I mean re-ordered! In August he was the leading conservative Democratic presidential contender.

New York Gov. Mario Cuomo spoke to the National Press Club in Washington recently. This is one of the most high-visibility forums for a politician aspiring to move from the local to the national stage. That is especially so when the politician is a member of the party not controlling the White House, and when the speech is delivered a mere 13 months before the New Hampshire presidential preference primary.To an overflow crowd he delivered a speech in which the most memorable moment was when he put tongue between his lips and made a wet, rude noise.

Sen. Bill Bradley's announcement that he will not run again next year is a stunner for the Democratic Party. Not only is the New Jersey senator the sixth Democrat to throw in the towel for 1996, he did so with words of despair for his colleagues in the Senate, whom he criticized as more interested in getting re-elected than in getting things done for the country, and for his party, which he criticized as too pro-government, too anti-marketplace.He might even run for president next year as an independent, he said.

WASHINGTON -- President Clinton's whisker-thin triumph in the Senate sends a mixed political signal.On the one hand, it is clear that most Democrats in Congress recognize they have a stake in the success or failure of the first Democratic president in 12 years. Otherwise, the president never would have prevailed in either the Senate or in a similar narrow escape in the House earlier with an economic plan that is largely castor oil.And that reality, in turn, means the odds favor the White House's finally getting from a House-Senate conference committee an economic plan it can claim as a success, even if it takes the rest of the summer to do it.But it is equally clear that Clinton is not a president who inspires fear or enlists political loyalty among his party colleagues.

THIS IS the way it begins, with Capitol cops lining the walls of a Senate hearing room, armed against any riot, brawl or unruly shouting.The chamber feels like a powder keg with an unlit fuse.In the spectator seats are young, close-cropped men wearing buttons: "Stop Discrimination -- End the Military Ban." No military uniforms are in sight.Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga., somber as a hanging judge, bangs the gavel.This is how it starts, the public debate on Bill Clinton's dynamite-loaded vow to lift the bar against gays and lesbians in the armed forces.
