A parting cheer for the wisdom of elders

Roberts, Steven V.
January 1994
U.S. News & World Report;1/17/94, Vol. 116 Issue 2, p6
Focuses on the late speaker of the House, Tip O'Neill, and Virginia Kelley, President Bill Clinton's mother, who died only hours after O'Neill. How both understood the concept of a mutual obligation between government and the governed, the idea that `we'll help you, then you help yourself'; Task awaiting President Clinton as he gives his State of the Union speech--to meld two seemingly conflicting traditions: O'Neillism versus Reaganism, community versus individuality.
