Feisty and unconcerned about being a party "spoiler," Democratic presidential candidate Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. on Friday criticized his rival, Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, for playing golf at a whites-only country club. "I think it's symbolic of what we're dealing with here," the former California governor told reporters. "It underscores the choice before the party: Are we going to be moving into the future or are we just bringing back the good ol' boys of yesteryear."

The Germans call it Schadenfreude. And at the White House on Wednesday, there was no mistaking the pleasure being taken in another's pain. President Bush mostly beamed. Senate Minority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) nodded with vigor. And other Republicans took public delight at a sudden turn that had left their presumed Democratic presidential opponent embarrassed at the hands of an angry insurgent in Tuesday's Connecticut primary.

Paul E. Tsongas Tuesday night congratulated Bill Clinton for his convincing primary victories in Michigan and Illinois, but immediately launched his bid for what he conceded is a "must-win" here next week in the Connecticut primary. "I give him credit," Tsongas said. "When someone does well, you have to stand back and give him credit."

What tripped up Democratic front-runner Bill Clinton in Tuesday's Connecticut primary: buyer's remorse, or a deeper discontent? On one level, Clinton's narrow loss to former California Gov. Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. fits a clear pattern in recent Democratic presidential races--voters express second thoughts once a candidate appears to emerge as the presumptive nominee.

As hundreds of supporters screamed their jubilation in a union hall, Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. declared Tuesday night that his "shocking upset" in Connecticut represents "a sea change" in American politics. "It's not the end of the story," the former California governor said. "It's just the second or third chapter. There's more to come." Later, sitting side by side with Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton on ABC-TV's "Nightline," Brown admonished: "Don't think this is a fluke."

On the first day of campaigning since Paul E. Tsongas abandoned his bid for the White House, Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton made it clear Friday that he sees the contest as a two-man race--between himself and President Bush. As Clinton talked with students at a local high school and met with Connecticut minority leaders, several of whom offered endorsements, the Democratic front-runner and his aides all but ignored the insurgent candidacy of former California Gov. Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr.

Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. predicted Monday that he would win the New York and Wisconsin primaries on April 7. But he spent most of the day campaigning in Connecticut, where he attacked Bill Clinton and fought for the credibility of his candidacy. Connecticut, which votes today, had been considered in Paul E. Tsongas' corner until the former Massachusetts senator suspended his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination last week.

Standing outside a shipyard that manufactures the endangered Seawolf submarine, Democratic front-runner Bill Clinton accused President Bush on Monday of advocating a "do nothing" policy on the economy. One day before the Connecticut primary, Clinton triumphantly held aloft a Boston Globe story on Bush's remarks to members of Congress after his recent veto of a Democratic economic package. " 'Do nothing' on economy, Bush advises lawmakers," the Globe headline read.

Many Connecticut voters say they will be thinking about their state's devastated economy when they go to the polls Tuesday to vote in the presidential primary. Already reeling under hard times, the state was handed another dose of devastating economic news only days before the primary, when President Bush sought to scrap the $2.3-billion Seawolf submarine built in Groton.
