Inside the Beltway


McCaslin, John, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


AMERICAN

We've been tracking how some U.S. citizens have been filling in the "race" space on the Census 2000 forms: some "American-American," others simply "American."

John A. Frey, legal analyst with LEXIS Publishing and "American," forwards an eloquent passage from Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's opinion in the case of Adarand vs. Pena:

"After the reading there was a question-and-answer period that touched on her first meeting the Clintons before they were in the White House," says one attendee, who quotes Miss Noonan as saying:

"That is the great thing about democracy: Before Hillary Clinton gets to decide your future, you get to decide hers."

FEMALE THING

Hillary Rodham Clinton is counting on women to get her elected senator from New York.

Her campaign, we're told, will organize a "Get on the Bus with New York Women for Hillary" rally May 16, in which women will board Greyhounds bound for Albany to be with the first lady when she's nominated by the New York State Democratic Party.
