At a dinner at the Washington Hilton Hotel, President Clinton congratulated radio and television correspondents on 50 years of TV and radio coverage of national politics. The President spoke on the history of radio and TV political coverage, its importance in the future, and on his relationship with the media. It was a black-tie affair in Washington, D.C. The president made several jokes concerning his dealings with the media. Following the president’s address, Mr. Keillor spoke. In his humorous remarks, he indicated that he was available for the Supreme Court vacancy and that he had difficulty coming to grips with a president the same age as he. He grew up with the image of “jowly men in baggy brown suits ... who looked at a camera as if it were a bomb.” He spoke about Whitewater and a generation and the press that was “so easily disillusioned.” He then proceeded to tell a lengthy story about being sixteen in Lake Wobegone and how situations are never as simple as they might appear. First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton also attended the event but did not speak. close
