Clinton' honeymoon

It seems that the news media have conspired together to assure that President Clinton must fail in every campaign promise. He has been in office two weeks, and the media have repeatedly pronounced him a failure.

In the Opinion page column "Clinton Seems to Be Promising Too Much," Jan. 26, the author reiterates the judgments of various commentators using such terms as "phony." The author also speaks of "indifference to campaign promises," and how "popularity only endures when success is being achieved." It has taken years to create the depleted condition of this country. Must we see instant cure or immediately condemn those who are attempting to improve the accumulated results of bad management? Ettamay Wildow, Carlsbad, Calif.
