Ross Perot is billing the bipartisan jamboree he convenes today in Dallas as nothing less than "the political event" of the century.

The Clinton Administration leveled one of its sharpest attacks against Ross Perot on Monday, charging that the billionaire industrialist's opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement is largely motivated by politics, including a desire to raise money for his United We Stand, America, Inc. movement. "It's probably a good issue to run with, so he's running with it," Richard Daley, the Administration's chief NAFTA strategist, told reporters. Perot is "a good politician.

Ross Perot's efforts to qualify a new party for California's 1996 presidential election suffered a setback Wednesday with news that state officials gave Perot the wrong deadline for filing petitions. Perot launched a statewide drive last weekend to either register 89,007 voters in his Reform Party or collect signatures of 890,064 registered voters on petitions. The deadline was thought to be Oct. 24 for either approach.

Only about a dozen people turned up Sunday at a meeting to organize a recall of state Sen. David A. Roberti (D-Van Nuys), including several who were either candidates seeking to replace him or representatives of other political wanna-bes. But recall leaders said they were undaunted by the tiny turnout, saying they believe that they will succeed in throwing Roberti out of office April 12, less than nine months before he must leave anyway under term limits.
