DOES BEING A LAME DUCK LEAD TO LOTS OF TIME ON THE GREENS?

          In an exclusive interview in the N.Y. TIMES, PRESIDENT
     CLINTON's passion for the game of golf was noted by Berke &
     Broder as he moves in to the latter part of his Presidency. 
     U.S. Senator John Breaux (D-LA), on Clinton's second term: 
     "It's golf, golf, golf -- interspersed with politics."  Some
     "prominent Democrats" said that they were surprised by
     Clinton's "longing for the golf course."  U.S. Senator Tom
     Daschle (D-SD): "It's amazing to me.  He can pour out data
     about a golf course like he can about polls and voting
     turnouts ... He regales us, with some frequency, with stories
     of being on the golf course and hitting this incredible
     drive."  Clinton: "It's not fair to say I'm obsessed with it"
     (Berke & Broder, N.Y. TIMES, 12/7).
