Robert talks with Senator Tom Daschle, a Democrat from South Dakota who is both the Democratic Conference Chair and the Senate Minority Leader, about President Clinton's chances in a Senate trial. They discuss the possibility of a censure of the President as opposed to removal from office. Robert also speaks with Senator James Inhofe (INN-hahf), a Republican from Oklahoma. Inhofe discusses why he thinks the Senate should proceed with a trial, and not take up the question of censure before that trial begins.
