Team Clinton
The Starting Line-Up of the Pro-Clinton
Press Corps

August 1, 1996

Bryant GumbelBryant Gumbel
Former co-host of NBC's Today;
former host of MSNBC's

"The tone of your speech yesterday suggested that Republican motives for many of the actions they are taking are quite suspect. Do you sense a mean spirit on Capitol Hill under Speaker Gingrich?"
-- To Al Gore, April 4, 1995.

"You called Gingrich and his ilk, your words, `trickle-down terrorists who base their agenda on division, exclusion, and fear.' Do you think middle-class Americans are in need of protection from that group?"
-- To House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt, January 4, 1995 Today.

"Like Truman, Clinton has a long list of achievements that he can point to -- including a robust economy, a crime bill, NAFTA, GATT. How did Truman ultimately win credit for what he was doing?"
-- To Truman biographer David McCullough, December 12, 1995 Today.

"Republicans are looking to gut the Clean Water Act and also the Safe Drinking Water Act. What are our options? Are we now forced to boil water because bottled water is not an economically feasible option for a lot of people?"
-- To NRDC lawyer Erik Olson, June 1, 1995 Today.

"We've got an awful lot to talk about this week, including the sexual harassment suit against the President. Of course, in that one, it's a little tough to figure out who's really being harassed."
-- Today, May 10, 1994.

"Do you give Bill Clinton credit for addressing serious issues that went un- touched for 12 years -- deficit reduction, gun control, world trade, health care? He has certainly taken on tough questions, and made them not a question of if, but how much."
-- To Mother Jones Editor Jeffrey Klein, January 7, 1994.

"You're aligned to a party which owes many of its victories to the so-called religious right and other conservative extremists who are historically insensitive to minority concerns. That doesn't bother you?"
-- To Republican U. S. Rep.-elect J.C. Watts (R-OK), November 9, 1994.
