Clinton told an enthusiastic Reynolds
Coliseum crowd at N.C. State Univer

issue in the campaign was what changes
would occur after the end of the cam

focus on things that don't have a lick to

Clinton said that he had entered the
presidential race out of a desire to im
prove the country for future genera
