Transcript ELEVENTH SEVENTH * Chelsea Clinton spent her teen years alternately shielded from publicity and on display to demonstrate family unity during her father's embarrassing crises. Now Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton are complaining about a People magazine cover story on Chelsea. The White House was steamed at People over its cover story about "the deep bond of love" between Chelsea and Hillary. The piece is far from critical, but the President expressed dismay that six years of "the media's restraint in allowing Chelsea the privacy that any young person needs and deserves" has come to an end, right there on the supermarket checkout line. White House spokesman Joe Lockhart said the Clintons found fault with "more the concept then the detail" of the story - namely that she was on the cover at all. "They didn't want the rest of the media to think it was finally OK to pry into Chelsea's life and invade her privacy," said a family friend. People rejected pleas that the article might endanger Chelsea's security, insisted that she is a legitimate news subject. As the Senate trial over the Monica Lewinsky and President Clinton scandal ended, Hillary Rodham Clinton took the limelight away from her husband. The possibility of the first lady running for the New York Senate seat in 2000 was circulating. Despite the chatter that she's just "considering it," insiders said Clinton was drooling over the prospect of replacing retiring Sen. Daniel Moynihan. She could raise the money and probably win, they said, but there are election-law questions about how she could be an active candidate hosting fund-raisers while also acting as first lady. And there's a curveball some were tossing around: She might run for governor in Arkansas in 2002. Clinton could also face hostility from some Jewish voters for supporting the eventual creation of an independent Palestinian state. Clinton wonderd whether she would enjoy the often confining and tedious life of a senator, and whether she would have even a modicum of privacy. She also worried that Senate rules would limit her earning power to help pay the family's steep legal bills. What gave her particular pause was the likelihood that any campaign would be all about her, not the issues, and would be nasty, brutish, and long. For a woman reeling from the Year of Monica, it would be a very unpleasant way to spend her remaining 23 months as first lady. "Whatever she wants," said her husband. 146- WORLD NEWS • King Hussein, who ruled the country of Jordan for nearly 47 years, died of complications from lymphatic cancer. He was 63. Doctors turned off a respirator after his heart stopped pumping and his brain stopped functioning, palace sources said. Hussein had been connected to the life-supporting machine when his internal organs failed following an unsuccessful bone marrow transplant performed in the U.S. His death ended the reign of a leader whose larger- than-life image and adroit political skills in a region of shifting alliances defined a nation and an era. Nearly 80 percent of his subjects have never known another king. At home, Hussein kept a common touch with his people. Abroad, he owned homes in London, Washington, Vienna and Palm Beach, Fla. He became king in 1952 after his father, KingTalal, abdicated due to mental illness, leaving him, not quite 17, to rule under guidance of a British general, Sir John Bagot Glubb. Hussein married four times, fathered 11 children and adopted a daughter. His 3 7-year-old son, Abdullah, a military man who was in charge of Jordan's special forces, was sworn in as the kingdom's fourth monarch and addressed his 4.3 million subjects. "King Hussein was a father to every one of you, as he was my father," he said. "Today you are my brothers and sister and you are dear to me." timeline ••••••••••••••• Gene Siskel of the critic-duo Siskel and Ebert died of brain cancer. Rev.

David Howard, a white mayoral aide in Washington, used the word niggardly in conversation with a black official, who took offense because he felt that nig gardly, which means miserly or cheap, was a racist term.
