Clinton Papers Show Damage Control During Scandal

The New York Times reports on "roughly 2,500 pages of documents from the Clinton White House years that were made public on Friday by the National Archives. More of the 30,000 documents will be released over the next several weeks."

"Some of the most riveting material involves the administration's scramble to contain the Lewinsky scandal -- which led to the president's impeachment -- and the maneuverings inside the White House to prepare for Hillary Rodham Clinton's political future."

"Almost 18 months before the Lewinsky scandal broke, but months after Mr. Clinton's relationship with her began, the president went to the trouble of sweetening a reference to his wife as he twice scribbled changes to his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in 1996."
