President Clinton Continues to Press NAFTA in Public Remarks

                         "The KO Clinton Needs: NAFTA"
               - David Nyhan, The Boston Globe, October 24, 1993

      * "Take my advice," Columnist David Nyhan wrote in The Boston Globe 

yesterday. "Be for NAFTA ...beware any spitball artist who comes to you with that wheezy argument that opens with 'the devil is in the details, right.' Wrong, wrong, wrong." Nyhan discussed Rep. Kennedy's and former Speaker O'Neill's endorsement of NAFTA, writing that when Kennedy endorsed, "union spokesmen went ballistic ...Expanded trade to Mexico and Canada will create thousands of jobs here, for a huge net employment gain. Kennedy is right [to have backed NAFTA]."
