Comparing Hart and Clinton

I read with interest the editorial "The Character Issue," Jan. 28, which compares the two trial-by-publicity cases: Gary Hart's and Bill Clinton's.

The contrast in handling of the issue in these cases should be enlightening to the public for there is a meaningful difference. Whereas Mr. Hart addressed the press alone, and his wife was quoted as being self-pitying and bitter, Hillary and Bill Clinton appeared on the television program "60 Minutes" solidly united.This goes a long way to acceptance and even exoneration in the eyes of the public. I have a distinct feeling the New Hampshire voters wil say the same at the ballot box. Robert C. Goodspeed, St. Louis
