After all the speculation about ``The Speech'' Aug. 17, it was no big surprise -- a modified, minimal regret, followed by an attack on poor Ken Starr, blaming him for all Clinton's trouble. A very juvenile response.
For all his talk about issues dividing our country -- race, etc. -- the biggest divisive issue is Clinton himself -- those that defend him and those who are appalled and disgusted and think he should resign.
I note that many defenders have been taken in with the White House spin that ``It's a private matter,'' ``All the presidents did it,'' etc., (none of which are true).
I believe he will only resign if enough members of his own party insist. I would like to see Congressman Lane Evans and our two Demoratic Party senators, Moseley-Braun and Durbin, take the high moral ground and speak out now for his resignation and save our country from further distress, so we can truly ``put this mess behind us.''
