The chairman of the committee seeking to bring the 2024 Summer Olympics to the Washington area said Thursday that he is intrigued by the possibility that an Olympic stadium could be built on the RFK Stadium site, perhaps becoming the future home of the NFL's Redskins. "When the ownership of the Washington NFL team talked about looking, that's probably one of the places they'd like to look, so that's something we'd like to understand better," said Russ Ramsey, who has been visiting other potential Olympic venues in Maryland and around the region.

Washington. -- Now that the spreading stain of Whitewater has oozed into the White House, no one can say for sure how this affair will end.But let's make one thing perfectly clear: Whitewater is no Watergate.Certainly, there are parallels, superficial and otherwise, between the scandal that ended Richard M. Nixon's presidency and the mess Bill Clinton's in.Echoes of Watergate can be heard in the cries alleging a White House cover-up and potential abuses of power, in the growing demands for hearings on Capitol Hill and the spectacle of White House aides dragged before a grand jury by a vigorous special prosecutor.

You've got to hand it to Bill Clinton: When the going gets tough, he gets going. Put him in a hostile, campaign-like environment, and he displays a master's touch.Take his press conference performance Thursday night. It came in the wake of very serious Whitewater-related charges made on the House floor by Rep. Jim Leach, R-Iowa. The Washington press corps focused like a laser beam on Whitewater (17 of the 22 questions were about it). The president's popularity has been falling as fast as it did on the primary campaign trail two years ago in the wake of the Gennifer Flowers and draft-dodging allegations.

CLEVELAND -- For Democrats gathered on the frozen shores of Lake Erie this weekend, the Whitewater affair could hardly have come at a worse time.The semiannual meeting of national party leaders was intended to be an upbeat kickoff to the 1994 election campaign. Instead, the Democrats' pep rally is serving mainly as a focus for questions about the dangers that Whitewater may pose to their party's prospects in November and beyond.One indication of that change: Party officials are now billing as the meeting's highlight a speech this afternoon by the Democratic National Committee (DNC)

AS NEWS of Whitewater crosses the Atlantic, we Europeans search again for the answer to the central question: Just what do you guys think you're doing?This looks like the third presidency in the last six to be severely damaged -- perhaps crippled -- by a major scandal.The other three, Ford, Carter and Bush, suffered from minor scandals, but you got rid of them anyway, at the first opportunity.The received wisdom appears to be that it's not the details of Whitewater that count; what's important is the cover-up.

Fiske Jr., believed that most of the details about the discussions of the handling of the earlier inquiry by savings regulators into Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan Association must remain secret.

Ten years ago, if you were to ask people my age if they liked their beverages on the rocks, they would assume you were taking their cocktail order. They would never think you were offering them a water bottle to enjoy while coursing down the Potomac River rapids on an inner tube. My, how times have changed. And not necessarily for the better. Admittedly, it was my idea to go whitewater tubing to celebrate America's birthday. I felt certain that our forefathers would have approved, because tubing is the sort of adventurous activity that George Washington would have embraced had he not been concerned with jettisoning his powdered wig and shattering his remaining teeth.
