WASHINGTON -- Maybe this is what President Clinton means when he says
it's time for him to get back to doing the country's business.
President Clinton today will hold his first meeting with Cabinet
officers since January, when he personally assured them that reports he
had a sexual affair with Monica Lewinsky were untrue.

Today's Cabinet meeting is scheduled to be held in the personal
setting of the White House residence rather than the Cabinet Room near
the Oval Office. It will be closed to reporters.
The last Cabinet meeting was held Jan. 23 when members were sent out
in the rain to express confidence in Clinton's denial of an affair with
the former White House intern.
"I believe the allegations are completely untrue,'' Secretary of
State Madeleine Albright said at the time. "I'll second that.
Definitely,'' said Commerce Secretary William Daley. "Third it,'' said
Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala.
