On Tuesday, the vice presi- Jdent celebrated Attorney General ;$anet Reno's decision to reject 'demands for a special investigation into his fund-raising calls. HTie issue is "behind us once and 3r all," Gore declared. 't Though the decision gave I4iim some legal solace, Gore's J3ean-cut reputation has been ;singed by investigations. And his Jwtential foes sense vulnerability. ;I Kerrey, a senator from Kan-as, told a group of reporters ; Tuesday that the administration's ;3raq policy needed more long-Jerm direction.

"I think the fact that Dean is ; talking about getting in is a sign of fore's vulnerability," said Stuart tRothenberg, a political analyst in Jvashington. l Aides said Gore was slightly 'gut off by Dean's plans, but not Surprised or angry. Perhaps prodding a glimpse of how they 'ould deal with a Dean candida-fy, officials said Gore doesn't .fconsider him a serious threat because he hails from a tiny state. !That logic' ignores the fact that I -linton was governor of a small rotate, Arkansas. t$ Gore, who has raised millions j)f dollars for Democratic governors, House members and sena-Jtprs, promises to continue his ork for the critical 1998 elec- ', tions even if Gephardt, Kerrey ; ' $lass. senator put t in house arrest ;. fhe Associated Press BOSTON A state senator sentenced to six months of home detention for not filing tax returns Said she didn't pay because death threats she received as an NAACP lawyer forced her to spend her money on security.
