A Candid Clinton

President Clinton is not expecting any Y2K problems, he’s never seen TV’s “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” and he thinks fallen sports hero Pete Rose should be in the Baseball Hall of Fame. “Who am I, of all people, to say?” the President tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview in an upcoming issue. “I think just about everybody ought to get a second chance.” A “relaxed and upbeat” Clinton spoke to PEOPLE managing editor Carol Wallace, news director Kristen Kelch and Washington bureau chief Sarah Skolnik in the Oval office on Dec. 3. Topics he touched upon ranged from daughter Chelsea’s accompanying him to Kosovo (he wouldn’t push her into a life in politics, he said, though she did receive a great reaction from the troops) to what he’ll miss most about life in the White House (“Probably the movie theater”). On the inevitable subject of the state of his marriage to Hillary, Clinton told PEOPLE: “There has been a lot of interest in us, which has not been unhealthy. It’s hasn’t been all bad. But a lot of what has been said is not true.”
