WELFARE REFORM has become so irresistible a movement that three of the four Maryland Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives have voted for immediate implementation of the widely heralded plan put forth by Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson, the welfare whiz rumored as a Bob Dole running mate.Those voting in defiance of the White House last week were Ben Cardin, Steny Hoyer and Albert Wynn. The only administration loyalist was Baltimore's new representative, Elijah Cummings. Something is obviously going on here.

MIAMI -- We tend to think of Republicans as an orderly lot. Usually you can look two or three years down the road and see that the party's presidential nomination inevitably will be won by Richard M. Nixon or Ronald Reagan or George Bush or Bob Dole. They were all in line for it; interlopers need not apply.Running for 2000This time around, however, we are being treated to something new and entirely different. There are perhaps 19 or 20 Republicans of some prominence interested in running in 2000 -- and none in anything that could remotely be called a commanding position.

IN POLITICS, it's never too early. On the day after the Nov. 5 election, former Tenn. Gov. Lamar Alexander let it be known he was ready for a second try four years down the road. He has plenty of contenders to worry about -- Colin Powell, Jack Kemp, Dan Quayle, George Bush the Younger, Christie Whitman, Pat Buchanan, Steve Forbes, Mike Leavitt, John Engler, Tommy Thompson, Trent Lott, John McCain to name a few.But Mr. Alexander's main worry is another Tennessean, Sen. Fred Thompson, the biggest GOP name out of Hollywood since a fellow named Ronald Reagan.

MADISON, Wis. -- He's not exactly Mr. Scintillating or Mr. Charisma, but Tommy Thompson seems to have what it takes to make a good president.Yet the three-term Wisconsin governor isn't even on the radar screen of Republicans thinking about the 2000 presidential election.Instead, the spotlight is focusing on retreads like Dan Quayle, Steve Forbes, Pat Buchanan and Lamar Alexander and a governor, George W. Bush, whose reputation outside of Texas comes from being the son of an ex-president.That's a pity, because Tommy Thompson goes about the business of governing the way it should be done.

Comedian Jay Leno joked that the meeting of Republican governors in Williamsburg was appropriate since they "are trying to return to the 17th century." More like the 18th. The GOP contingent called for a modern form of original, constitutional federalism, in which each governor is free to do as he or she pleases, within reasonable limits, to solve their states' problems and to avoid unwanted obligations imposed on them by Congress.The message of this month's voting is that Americans want closer-to-home decision-making.

Attention, promoters. For only $10,000 (and possibly less), you can secure the services of 45-year-old heavyweight Jerry Quarry for your very next fight card.Provided, of course, you can sneak him past a state boxing commission.Quarry's second attempt to gain a license from the California State Boxing Commission failed last Friday, prompting the former contender to claim deprivation of his civil rights and his trainer, Guy Ditmars, to send out an all-points bulletin for a promoter and state commission willing to take Quarry as is."

Washington. -- As the National Governors' Association meets in Washington this week five Midwesterners are the stars in the ranks of the 30 Republican governors.These ''invincible five'' walked unscathed through the incumbent-bashing of 1994, winning re-election by margins rarely seen in competitive two-party states: Michigan's John Engler (62 percent), Illinois' Jim Edgar (64 percent), Wisconsin's Tommy Thompson (67 percent), Minnesota's Arnie Carlson (63 percent) and Ohio's George Voinovich, who rolled up a phenomenal 72 percent of the vote.

Wooster, Ohio. -- In this college town, where the clear air almost crackles with the colors of turning leaves, every prospect pleases and not even man is vile. Or so it seems until you see television.At 4 p.m., after the steamy soaps have subsided, cable from Cleveland brings the ''Montel Williams Show,'' an excrescence of the talk-show explosion. This day Mr. Williams' subject is adolescents whose recreation is fornication. His guests are slack-jawed teen-age girls and trashy dim-witted boys who tell improbable tales of promiscuity.
