Letter: Bill Clinton's inauguration

Click to follow
Sir: What a huge sense of relief we can all feel now that Bill Clinton has been sworn in. For the first time in decades the motley interests of the United States have been embraced by one intelligent, able and hard-working person.

After months on the campaign trail, Clinton and Gore stood proud and assured on the podium - masters of their generation and heroes to most liberal thinkers the world over.

They offer my generation - two or three steps behind theirs - true hope for our future. Now we must wait until our fellow citizens 'summon the change' and elect home-grown heroes to lead our country.

Yours sincerely,


London, W2
