VIEWERS' GUIDE

* Clinton's acceptance speech is said to contain several specific proposals and initiatives for a second term. And in keeping with the tone that has marked the convention's prime-time remarks, Clinton it is expected to steer clear of partisan attacks

* Length is always a potential problem with a Clinton speech; even when the text tends toward brevity, his style and delivery can cause his remarks to drag a bit
