Cartoon highlights foreign pitfalls

Danziger's editorial cartoon of the ``Clinton View of the World,'' May 11, is a classic. While many will see it as critical of President Clinton's caution in foreign policy, many others will be reassured: They voted for Clinton precisely because he tends to avoid risky foreign entanglements.
