President scoffs at rumor

Bill Clinton for Senate?

"He has no intention of running for the Senate," White House spokesman Joe Lockhart said Monday. "I think his quote to me was, 'That story is crazy, and I don't know where they got it.' "That keeps the household political focus on first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton's possible Senate bid in New York.

While the Clintons were in New York City on Monday to attend Democratic Party fund-raisers, the first lady took time to go house-hunting in the city and its suburbs.

Asked whether his wife had any house-hunting success, the president said shaking his head and smiling, "I'm not the spokesperson for that operation."
