In the wake of reports that Vice President Dan Quayle's own staff was critical of him during the 1988 election campaign, his chief speech writer during that time defended Quayle in a speech in Irvine on Wednesday. Kenneth L. Khachigian, 44, a San Clemente attorney, accused the authors of a new book of "selectively choosing comments, quotations and observations to confirm a pre-selected view" of the vice president.
