Iraq/Heartland Reaction

Liane speaks with Guy MacMillan, Editorial Director of the Keene Sentinel in Keene, New Hampshire, and Mike Jacobs, Editor of the Grand Forks Herald in Grand Forks, North Dakota. They say that while there's general public support in their communities for military action against Iraq, most of their readers are not overly concerned about the issue. The editors also suggest that the Clinton administration needs to sharpen its message on the purpose behind any military action if they hope to sell the idea to the American people.
