For former Massachusetts Sen. Paul E. Tsongas, it's put up or shut up time. In the wake of Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton's big victories in the Southern Democratic presidential primaries Tuesday, Tsongas must find a way to broaden his appeal in next week's Illinois and Michigan primaries. Otherwise, his candidacy will lose credibility and its survival will be in question. Mindful of the crisis confronting the campaign, his advisers spent Monday pressing him to adopt a new strategy.

Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, who abandoned his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination two weeks ago, will endorse Bill Clinton today or Thursday in New York, sources said Tuesday.

It wasn't two hours on the "Today" show or a live shot on MTV. It wasn't even a half-hour radio call-in program with questions from Bob in Boston or Paula in Pittsburgh. In his latest effort to speak directly to the American voter, President Bush sat down Monday for a live, 30-minute interview on the Cable News Network.

It appears that, just as he promised during his campaign, Gray Davis really will need a big--no, giant--table in his new office as governor. He said he wants to hear from everybody. And so far, the Democratic governor-elect has asked nearly 50 prominent Californians, including some skeptical Republicans, to share their views as members of advisory panels on education and agriculture.

For 2 1/2 years, no elected official was closer to Gov. Gray Davis than the conservative Democratic congressman from the San Joaquin Valley town of Ceres, Gary Condit. But when Davis last week broke his silence and criticized Condit for his conduct after Washington intern Chandra Levy's disappearance, the relationship came to an apparent end. The breach further exposed the Condit family's raw wounds and underscored the often transitory nature of political alliances.
