CHICAGO SUN-TIMES REGISTERS A VOTE FOR CLINTON

 CHICAGO SUN-TIMES REGISTERS A VOTE FOR CLINTON
 CHICAGO, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chicago Sun-Times today is


endorsing Bill Clinton for president of the United States.
 In Sunday's edition, the Sun-Times editorial states: "Bill Clinton offers this country direction. George Bush has brought it none." The president "has had his chance, and now it is too late."
 The Bush administration has failed to rally the nation in the face of a lagging economy in a soaring national debt, the Sun-Times notes. "But from the White House, the nation has heard only unconvincing assurances and seen only an occasional stirring."
 Clinton is certainly the candidate for urban America, the Sun-Times says. "It is clear that Clinton, better than Bush, grasps the forces that lead to the failed dreams and deaths of the Dantrell Davises." Davis was the seven-year-old Chicago youngster killed by sniper fire Tuesday while he walked to school.
 Clinton, the Sun-Times says, "Better understands the hatreds that tear us apart and the dangers that threaten our globe...
 "What has won our vote for Clinton is the focus he has kept, throughout his campaign, on job creation, the economy, education, the environment, and all the other problems bedeviling domestic tranquility. Clinton's direction might not be the way all people want to go, but we will, with him, no longer be where we are, rudderless and drifting, moved only by the tides."
 The Clinton endorsement marks the start of two weeks of Sun-Times endorsements before the Nov. 3 election. On Monday, the newspaper will announce its endorsement for the U.S. Senate seat contested by Carol Moseley Braun and Rich Williamson.
