Once again, The Times is committing deception on its readers by printing another pro-Clinton essay by Elaine Ciulla Kamarck ("A Third-World State Muddies Clinton's Path," March 26) under Column Left. There's nothing "left" about her Progressive Policy Institute, an organ of Clinton's ultra-centrist Democratic Leadership Council. This D.L.C. is better named "Democrats for the Leisure Class." Previously, she tried to convince us that the Clinton bandwagon is unstoppable. Now, her sophistry rises to new heights.

Plunging into the thorny thicket of family values, advisers to President Clinton have proposed that he wage an intense campaign against out-of-wedlock births, make divorce more difficult, mandate drug treatment for pregnant addicts and try to make parents and the media more responsible toward children. The proposals can be found in a handbook, "Mandate for Change," published recently by Berkley Press and endorsed by Clinton.

In writing about Republican women ("GOP Women Serve Grit, Not Tea," Commentary, Aug. 19), Elaine Ciulla Kamarck seems to have overlooked one important fact: The "prominent Republican women" are all busy saving the so-called men from themselves; none of them are candidates in their own right. This isn't progress, it isn't even new. Women have been saving men from themselves for several thousand years. In the Democratic Party, the women are running for office themselves. Perhaps they just don't believe in sending helpless, sniveling little boys to do a grown woman's job. I'm sure Marilyn knows how to spell potato . PAUL ROSENBERG, Venice

Elaine Ciulla Kamarck's so-called Column Left, "Nailing Down a Trap-Proof Platform," (Commentary, July 9) tries to convince readers that Bill Clinton will avoid Republican traps during the campaign. His secret? Adopting Republican rhetoric and programs for his own platform. For example, Kamarck praises Clinton's use of the death penalty, his avoidance of "sociological explanations of crime" and his simplistic view that "the answer to crime is more police." Kamarck argues that the Democratic Party will prove it "can be trusted with the economy" by moving "as far from redistributionist economics as it can."

You listed an article ("Harkin Bets on the Wrong Party Base," by Elaine Ciulla Kamarck, Jan. 23) under Column Left. My understanding of the political category of left and right would place her piece under Column Right! There are no more vigorous right-wingers these days than the neoconservatives and Kamarck's attack on Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Tom Harkin is a perfect example of her right-wing views. Harkin is not for the post-industrial society. Harkin has seen what de-industrialization had done to the mass purchasing power of the country--it has failed!

May 7, 1992 | ELAINE CIULLA KAMARCK, Elaine Ciulla Kamarck, a senior fellow at the Progressive Policy Institute, writes from New York.
To engage in laying blame for the creation of a violent urban underclass--a temptation to which President Bush and some Democrats have succumbed--is to rehash the tried-and-true foolishness of the left and right, where liberals blame Ronald Reagan and the military-industrial complex and conservatives blame Lyndon Johnson and the welfare state.

Over the past few weeks it has been almost painful to watch President Bush. As his campaign lurches from crisis to crisis, Bush has tried to explain himself and his record to the American public. So far the public remains unconvinced, and no wonder.

When Ross Perot decided not to run for President, everything about the presidential race seemed to change; but in fact nothing changed at all. During the past five months of Perot mania, Perot himself never became anything more than a convenient vehicle through which people could register their intense unhappiness with the Democratic and Republican parties.

For many months now, the operating assumption within the Bush campaign and White House has been that the President will win reelection because the other two candidates will be unacceptable alternatives. You could see this strategy in full swing this week as Dan Quayle was dispatched to New York to attack Bill Clinton's integrity and to talk about family values, and Massachusetts Gov. William Weld was dispatched to Little Rock to criticize Clinton's record on taxes and the environment.

In all the millions of words I've written about politics in my lifetime, I don't think I've ever used the word heartbreak. But I am beginning to think that when the history of the 1992 elections is written, heartbreak will be the dominant theme. In the past year, George Bush and Bill Clinton have broken the hearts of even their most loyal supporters. No wonder that more and more Americans each week are picking up the pieces and moving on.
