Those not satisfied with hearing television commentators pontificate on the inauguration can go to the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace on Wednesday, where experts--including former Senate candidate Bruce Herschensohn--will discuss the Clinton Inauguration in person. In an event that is a cross between a town hall forum and a debate, Herschensohn will be joined by UC Irvine Associate Prof. Mark Petracca in discussing various aspects of the inaugural, including Bill Clinton's address.

The Mongolians sent regrets. The Icelanders too. The Rwandans and Bosnians are busy. And the folks in Cambodia, Cameroon and Chad forgot their manners: They haven't even replied. But just about everybody else who's anybody in world affairs is coming, or has angled for an invitation, to what's being called the mother of all parties--the inauguration gala here Tuesday of Nelson Mandela as the first black president of South Africa. Vice President Al Gore arrives today.

Some are along for the first time and not even sure which events they will attend. Others are veterans of this sort of thing, and their itineraries are planned down to the minute.

But it is a good bet that all of them have one thing in common: They have been solid backers of George Bush.

Following his doctor's advice, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger canceled plans to attend a pair of events today that are part of his two-day inaugural celebration. In taking the step, Schwarzenegger's office is acknowledging that his broken leg may interfere more with his schedule than aides previously had suggested. The governor, who has barely been out in public since he fractured his right femur while skiing Dec. 23, was supposed to appear today at an inauguration kickoff on the Capitol lawn.

Former Communist Ion Iliescu pledged Wednesday to be a democratic president of reconciliation, but the United States boycotted his inauguration to protest his role in violent attacks on opposition figures.

The California Raisins, those wildly successful animated celebrities who promote one of the state's biggest cash crops, will not, as widely announced, be dancing in George Bush's inaugural parade after all. The wrinkled mascots have been caught in a mild rhubarb. The shriveled television stars were billed this week by Bush's parade coordinators as prominent characters in the 78-float parade after the swearing-in Jan. 20.
