First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, arrived Sunday in Egypt on the first leg of a three-nation North African tour that has been billed as a bridge-building mission between the United States and the Islamic world. Starting a 12-day tour of Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia, Clinton was aiming on her first day to highlight Islamic contributions to culture as a way to help dispel distrust that has strained relations since the 1991 Persian Gulf War.

Texas Gov. George W. Bush joined President Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in voicing disappointment about a People magazine cover story on Chelsea Clinton, saying concerns about his own teenage daughters remain a factor as he considers running for president. "If the president and Mrs. Clinton are disappointed that their daughter's on the cover of the magazine, I'm disappointed for them," Bush said. Last week, the Clintons said they were "profoundly saddened" by People's coverage.

A headline screamed, "LEAVE HER ALONE." It was the front page of the New York Post. I don't mean the headline was on the front page. I mean it was the front page. All of it. Except for a photo of President Clinton curling his arm around his curly-haired daughter, Chelsea. "LEAVE HER ALONE." I saw those capital letters and flinched. "Poor Chelsea," I thought. Somebody must have done something awful to her. Hassled her. Harassed her.

Many a mother would be pleased to learn that People magazine was planning a flattering cover story about her relationship with her devoted daughter. But not First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. In fact, the White House was so furious about a glowing mother-daughter profile, appearing in the Feb. 15 issue of People, that the first lady's press office applied stiff pressure to try to get the magazine to drop the idea.

President Clinton and the first lady issued a terse statement Wednesday saying they "deeply regret and are profoundly saddened" by the decision of People magazine to run a cover story on their daughter, Chelsea.

What a difference a year makes. Just 12 months ago this week, President Clinton was visibly enjoying himself on picturesque Martha's Vineyard island--with a seemingly endless diet of golfing, jogging, going to parties and even sailing. He and his wife, Hillary, were everywhere, smiling broadly, obviously having fun. This year, the setting is the same, but the mood and the Clintons' visibility are dramatically altered. Apart from his sudden one-day return Thursday to Washington after the U.S.

With a bemused laugh, President Clinton turned to his press secretary aboard a small Air Force jet, showed him the crossword puzzle clue he was working and said, "Here's one that's appropriate for today." The clue for 46-down in the New York Times puzzle, calling for a word of four letters, was "meal for the humble?" The answer: "Crow."

Some teenagers and parents were angry at President Clinton not for his White House transgressions, but for temporarily knocking the Miss Teen USA pageant off the air. Clinton's address to the nation forced CBS to cancel its live coverage of the annual show Monday night in favor of a tape-delayed version the next day. Audience members said Clinton should have checked the TV schedule before going through with a speech that would preempt the beauty pageant.
