NotesNews - Russia's political map was torn up and redrawn yesterday as President Boris Yeltsin unambiguously named Viktor Chernomyrdin as his preferred successor and parliament moved to claim radically enlarged sovereign powers. In a humbling moment that may mark the start of a gradual withdrawal from the helm of state, Mr. Yeltsin appeared on national television to heap praise on Mr. Chernomyrdin, whom he abruptly sacked as prime minister five months ago and has been forced to reinstate. [James Meek, The Guardian, 25 August 1998] President Bill Clinton's hopes of surviving the Monica Lewinsky scandal were bolstered yesterday when the Republican House speaker, Newt Gingrich, said he should not be inpeached simply because he had an affair with the White House intern and tried to cover it up. [Gary Younge, The Guardian, 25 August 1998]
