Reports that the early favorites to star in January 1993's inaugural parade is the newly elected Democratic senator from Colorado--and his horse. Ben Nighthorse Campbell, the third Native American to serve in the US Senate, plans to ride down Pennsylvania Avenue on his favorite mount, a brown-and-white paint named War Bonnet. He's a member of the Northern Cheyenne tribe; Republicans have suggested that he boasts too much of his heritage.
