The president’s campaign train, the 21st Century Express, reached Battle Creek, Michigan where he addressed supporters. He is on his way to the Democratic Convention in Chicago. The president reported on the events of the whistle-stop tour to that point, and called this the most important campaign of his life. President Clinton credited his administration with accomplishing a lot, but admitted that there was much more to do. He laid out an “opportunity agenda” to explain his proposals for continued recovery of the economy, investment in education, reduction of violent crime, and welfare reform. The president also asked America to take advantage of legislation meant to help rebuild a national sense of community. Examples of such government policy include the family and medical leave law and protection of interracial adoption. President Clinton spoke out strongly against tobacco use by young people. close
