Mrs. Clinton's silence could end soon
WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, Sept. 10) -- In the more than three weeks since President Bill Clinton acknowledged his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, his wife has been visibly cool to him but hasn't made any public comments on the subject. That could change Thursday.
Hillary Rodham Clinton was scheduled to participate in an afternoon White House event to raise awareness of colon cancer.
The president was not expected to be in attendance and it was not clear what, if anything, Mrs. Clinton would say about the president's affair or Independent Counsel Ken Starr's report to Congress detailing what Starr considers impeachable offenses.
The first lady also will have an opportunity to comment on her husband at a political event on Thursday evening.
They are scheduled to appear together at a dinner for the Democratic Business Council. Mrs. Clinton is to introduce her husband, who will address the group at a Washington hotel.
Many of the president's supporters have been urging Mrs. Clinton to speak out in defense of her husband. They want her to say she forgives him and ask the American public to do the same. However, sources close to the first lady tell CNN she is not likely to do that anytime soon.Correspondent Wolf Blitzer contributed to this report.
