ABSTRACT
Reports that while suggestions for the substance of President-elect Bill Clinton's inaugural address vary widely, there is little disagreement about the advice that the notoriously long-winded Clinton is getting about its length: `Keep it short!' Still, few expect Clinton to match the modern record for brevity set in 1945 by Franklin Roosevelt, whose wartime speech lasted only six minutes.
