Bob Dole is a good and decent man," Gore said politely of the Republican nominee for president. But in a moment he was bashing the "Dole-Gingrich Congress," charging Republicans with a scary-sounding litany of planned offenses and revving up the sweaty crowd with the climactic vow: "But we won't let them!" At a campaign forum in Lancaster, Pa.

The Supreme Court agreed to hear a second case challenging the Clinton administration's plan to use statistical sampling for the 2000 census. By adding the case to the one previously set for arguments Nov. 30, the high court increased the chances it will decide the merits of the dispute that has provoked a political battle between the White House and Republicans in Congress. The Supreme Court a month ago agreed to hear a case involving a challenge to the sampling plan by House Republicans.

A conservative Democratic congressman from Texas who last week quit a campaign committee over a dispute with Democratic leaders will jump to the Republican Party on Monday, GOP sources said Friday.

House Republicans would have a 232-202 majority with Laughlin, who represents a huge rural district in South Texas.

These are suddenly perplexing times for conservatives--both here and in the United States. Their ancient antagonists on the left are moving toward them in accepting limits on government's role in society. Yet on both sides of the Atlantic, the conservative parties paradoxically find themselves in retreat. In the United States, the Republican congressional majority is approaching disarray. Their term limits constitutional amendment crashed in the House.
