The Clinton vs. Bush Headline Derby

Bill Clinton, seething in front of his television in Chappaqua, N.Y., continues to generate almost as much copy as President Bush, dozing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W. This chart lists the number of Page One stories in the Washington Post and the New York Times on both, plus the number of major stories mentioning them on the weeknight network news programs.
