.Presidential candidates clash in t. Loiiis
Bush, Clinton, Perot trade quips,
ideas in first presidential debate
The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS Bill Clinton and Presi

the economy Sunday night in a bristling
three-way debate with Ross Perot.
From taxes to crime to AIDS to for

the White House outlined differing vi

ance, Perot was a flamboyant partici
pant, providing a series of one-liners
and offering himself as an outsider who
could shake up the system.
Clinton said he represented hope for
"real change," and turned to Bush to
add: "For 12 years you've had it your
way, you've had your chance, and it
Bush answered, "Change for
change's sake isn't enough," and re
called the economic woes the last time
the Democrats held the White House.
Perot said, "We do have to have
change," saying that the first priority
should be to rebuild the nation's job
base and pointing out his experience as
a hard-charging business leader.
The debate kicked off a climactic
nine-day period in the campaign for the
White House, and the stakes were high,
especially for Bush who trailed Clinton
in the national polls, and for Perot, who

There were no knockout punches in
the debate, leaving the campaigns free
to put their best face forward afterward.
Clinton's running mate, Sen. Al Gore,
quipped that Bush had finished "fourth,"
behind Clinton, Perot and moderator
Jim Lehrer. White House chief of staff
James Baker said the president had made
"a mature presentation."
The opening moments were highly
charged, with Bush bluntly criticizing
Clinton for anti-war activities while
studying overseas at Oxford University
during the Vietnam war. Bush held out
his service during World War II in con
trast. Clinton responded directly to Bush,
who seemed not to return his gaze.
"When Joe McCarthy went around this
country attacking people's patriotism,
he was wrong," said Clinton. "Your
father (Prescott Bush) wasright to stand
up to Joe McCarthy.
"You were wrong to attack my pa
triotism. I opposed the war, but I love
my country," he said to applause from
his partisans in the audience.
Clinton made several references to
his own life. He noted that he came from
