LITTLE ROCK, Ark. President
elect Bill Clinton late Tuesday laid claim
to a landslide victory he called a "clarion
call" for the country to "face the chal
lenge of the end of the Cold War and the
beginning of the next century."
"My fellow Americans, on this day,
with high hopes and brave hearts in
massive numbers, the American people
have voted to make a new beginning,"
said the 46-year-old Arkansas gover
nor, with 44-year-old running mate Al
Gore at his side.
Clinton said his mandate was to "re
store growth to our country and oppor
tunity to our people."
The first Arkansan everelected presi
dent also will become the third young
est president, the first baby boomer to
win the White House.
A crowd of 40,000 filled the streets
of Little Rock as Clinton ended a roller
coaster campaign in triumph. He
thanked the residents "of this small
state," a humorous reference to criti
cisms of Arkansas by President Bush
and Ross Perot. In return, the crowd
chanted "landslide, landslide" to spot
light his commanding victory.
Clinton thanked Bush for his service
to the country and for his graceful con
cession. He also applauded Perot and
The scene outside Arkansas' Old
State House was a picture of the young
administration coming to Washington:
the Clintons the governor, his wife
Hillary and their 12-year-old daughter
Chelsea and the Gores the sena

dren. "I accept tonight the responsibility
you have given to me, to be the leader of
this, the greatest country in human his
tory," Clinton said. "This is a remark
able coalition for change. I ask you to
keep that commitment as we move from
the election to governing."

Bush took a sip of water before speak
