Clinton on three-state tour

PRESIDENT Clinton, campaigning for Democrats in San Francisco, demanded Saturday that schools expel gun-toting students and accused Republicans of plotting to gut his education package.

Mr. Clinton told high school students in a gymnasium, ``We have to prove ... we can still give our kids an old-fashioned, safe upbringing and a good education.''

Clinton hopes to boost his political standing - and the chances of other Democrats - with a three-day swing through California, Washington state and Ohio - on the eve of a historic Mideast trip.
