ELECTIONS COULD HURT CLINTON'S CAMPAIGN

Bob Dole couldn't possibly be thinking such awful things, but it's a good bet that a few of his presidential campaign strategists are:

Wouldn't it be interesting if the Communists and the hard-line Likud Party won the elections in Russia and Israel between now and mid-July? Wouldn't that hand President Clinton a few unwelcome problems at a most inconvenient time?Whether you call election results like that in Russia and Israel "interesting" or out-and-out disasters, they would no doubt be a body blow to Clinton's re-election campaign. They would put an end to those self-generated assessments that the president is a foreign policy ace after all.
