Friends Don't Let War Get in the Way of Fund-Raising. (News Alert!)
Dettmer, Jamie, Edwards, Catherine, Insight on the News
Undeterred by criticism, President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore appear reluctant to forego campaign fund-raising while the Balkan conflict rages. Since NATO air strikes began, the pair have attended more than 10 fund-raisers -- the equivalent of one every 72 hours.
They also don't seem to be put off by having to mn gauntlets of protesters when they show up at fund-raising events. The president was heckled as he arrived at a $50,000-a-plate dinner at the home of former party finance chairman Alan Solomont in Boston in mid-April. And he also drew a crowd of demonstrators at a fund-miser in Dearborn, Mich., where $500,000 was raised for congressional Democrats.
