Boy Tells Clinton To Break Law

April 11, 2000

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) _ Standing in a throng of children, President Clinton couldn’t help but laugh at the little boy’s question: Is he still president?

``I have to leave in January,″ Clinton replied. He explained that the law limits him to two terms in office.

So the boy offered a solution: Break the law, or at least change it so he can stay.

Clinton roared with laughter.

``I can’t do that. But I’ll be around,″ the president said. ``I’ll try to do something useful.″

The anonymous little questioner was in a group of children who encountered Clinton on a street outside the Maryland statehouse Tuesday, just after the governor signed a new gun safety law that Clinton supports.

Clinton then ducked into the Aurora Gallery, an arts and crafts shop, and bought a few cat pins and a ceramic candy bowl decorated with cat figures.

He climbed into his limousine to head back to Washington.
