President Clinton spoke to reporters in the White House to announce the withdrawal of his nominee for Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights due to the nominee’s writings on civil rights and affirmative action quotas. The president said he had not had a chance to review her writings prior to the nomination, and said that he found in her writings fundamental differences between her views and the views he expressed in his campaign. He said a long fight for her nomination in the Senate would be divisive for the country and would be based on her writings, which he does not support. close
