ABSTRACT
Editorial. Considers President Bill Clinton's plans to accept a report on reinventing government, launch his health care initiative, and still find time to work for the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. Suggests that what is remarkable, and a sad measure of the administration's skill and dexterity, is that the Clinton White House seems incapable of managing this juggling act. Experiences of Clinton's predecessors; Challenges ahead.
