The House narrowly failed Thursday to override President Clinton's veto of a bill to eliminate the estate tax, catapulting the issue from Capitol Hill to the campaign trail where voters can decide whether to elect friends or foes of the measure. The House voted 274 to 157 to pass the bill over Clinton's objection--a solid majority but 14 votes short of the two-thirds margin needed to override a veto.
