Giuliani's positions on education and put herself in the company of Vice President Al Gore as opposing the "Bush-Giuliani" team.

Senate candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that she made a mistake in using a government list of White House party guests to solicit political contributions. "This was my error, absolutely my error," and not that of a campaign staffer, she said at a Manhattan campaign event. Her rival, Republican Rep. Rick Lazio, suggested Friday that either the first lady or her campaign aides had broken the law and should answer for it.

President Clinton interrupted his fun-in-the-sun vacation Saturday to walk through a potential home in Westchester County with his wife and daughter. The Clintons squeezed in a visit to a four-story Colonial north of New York City before heading to the Hamptons on Long Island for a weekend of fund-raising parties. Clinton brushed aside a question about what he wanted in a home. "Some place nice and airy that will make Hillary happy--that's what I want," the president said.

New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, contemplating a Senate race, had some fun at the expense of First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is also considering the same Senate bid. Giuliani, who has a penchant for dressing in costume--he wore a dress and wig on NBC-TV's "Saturday Night Live"--donned a red Arkansas jacket and cap and announced he was headed to Little Rock. "I'm going to say, 'I've never lived in Arkansas. I've never worked in Arkansas. I've never been to Arkansas.

Rep. Rick Lazio (R-N.Y.), over the objections of some GOP leaders in New York, has confirmed he will seek the party's nomination for the U.S. Senate seat in which First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton could be the Democratic candidate.

A television ad boosting Hillary Rodham Clinton's expected New York Senate candidacy was unveiled Monday by state Democratic Party officials. The TV ad, scheduled to begin airing today across upstate New York, comes less than one week after Mrs. Clinton's likely Republican opponent, New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, began airing his own ads in Upstate television markets. Judith Hope, the state party chairwoman, said the ad was not a response to the mayor's television offensive.

Rep. Rick Lazio and Hillary Rodham Clinton appear to have reached a deal banning the use of advertising in their New York Senate race paid for with so-called soft money. "I think the two sides have come to a close enough point that we effectively have a deal," said Clinton's campaign manager, Bill de Blasio. Lazio told reporters, "It appears that we have an agreement, based on what I am hearing that Mrs. Clinton said." Soft money refers to the unlimited funds collected by political parties.

In a frequently nasty confrontation, Senate candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton and Rep. Rick Lazio traded angry charges Wednesday during a nationally televised debate. But they also touched on issues in their first face-to-face confrontation in New York's hotly contested Senate race. The contest has been deadlocked for months, according to numerous public opinion polls, and both candidates had pledged to discuss substantial issues, such as health care, education, the environment and tax reform.

The limousines started up Mandeville Canyon before sundown Saturday, bringing some of Hollywood's biggest pockets and most luminous stars to say goodbye to the Democrat who has charmed them as no other chief executive in decades, President William Jefferson Clinton. Clinton's supporters--and even a few non-supporters--had paid handsomely for this chance to bid adieu: $1,000 a head to drink cocktails and attend a star-studded concert or $25,000 a couple to stay late and eat dinner.

It is not surprising that one of the first things Hillary Rodham Clinton did after Al Gore's historic announcement of his running mate was to dial 911 for Joseph I. Lieberman. After a year of traveling from New York state's pristine dairy country hamlets to its leafy suburbs and teeming inner-city neighborhoods, Mrs. Clinton remains stuck in political quicksand.
