was part of its investigation into the campaign finance abuses of 1996.
Political strategist Dick Morris has been part of Bill Clinton's circle of
political advisors since Clinton's first gubernatorial race in Arkansas in
1978. Morris is credited by many with engineering Clinton's re-election to
the Arkansas governorship after a humiliating defeat at the end of his first
term. Thus it's not surprising President Clinton turned to Morris after the
mid-term elections of 1994 when Republicans seized control of the U.S. House
and Senate and Clinton's own chances for a second presidential term seemed
negligible. From the early months of 1995 until August of 1996, Morris was a
principal architect of the Clinton-Gore re-election strategy.
