Statement on Action To Prosecute for the Killing of United States 
Department of Agriculture Inspectors

June 23, 2000

    Today the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of California 
filed a complaint charging an individual with the intentional killing of 
two U.S. Department of Agriculture inspectors in the course of their 
duties. I want to commend Federal and local law enforcement for working 
so quickly to investigate and prosecute this important case. Our 
thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims, their families, and 
the community during this difficult time.

Remarks at a California State Democratic Party Reception
in Los Angeles, California

June 23, 2000

    The President.  Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen, before I start my 
speech, there's one other thing I want to say. There's somebody else 
here I want to introduce, and I want to ask to come up here.
    When we nominated Al Gore--we haven't formally, yet, but when he got 
through the primaries--he's the only candidate in our party's history in 
a contested primary, including me, who went all the way through the 
primaries and didn't lose a single one. And I want to bring up Bill 
Daley's partner, Donna Brazile, our campaign manager for the Gore 
campaign. Come on up here, Donna. Thank you.
    I thank Joe Andrew for his leadership. And I want to thank Terry 
McAuliffe for coming in here to help us get this convention financed and 
get it off to a good foot. It sounds strange, but I'm grateful to Bill 
Daley for leaving my Cabinet--[laughter]--because he's going to lead the 
Vice President to victory. So I thank them all.
    I want to say a couple of things about--first, I thank Art for 
reminding you that I kept my word--[laughter]--and I'm glad to be here. 
In 1995 a Presidential scholar named Thomas Patterson surveyed all the 
campaign commitments made by the last five Presidents and said by '95, I 
had already kept a higher percentage of my commitments than my five 
predecessors. And we've got a higher percentage now, thanks to you, and 
I thank you for that.
    I would like to say just a few things to you. First, I am grateful 
that we are having this convention which will be, as you know, my 
farewell convention as President, in the State of California.
    Audience members.  Boo-o-o!
    The President.  I'm not going to shrivel up. I'll be around. 
[Laughter] But listen, I'm grateful that we're having this in California 
because so much of the texture of my campaign in '92--the energy, the 
ideals, the passion--was borne out of the inspiration I received from 
the pain and the faith, from the longing and the idealism that I saw in 
California in 1992, when we had a terrible economy, a profoundly divided 
society, and a level of political rhetoric that was making it worse.
    And I asked you to give me a chance to turn it around. And starting 
with the California Democrats, you did. And you didn't give up on me. 
The day after I won the Democratic primary in California, they said, 
``How dumb are they? Clinton is in third place in the polls.'' There 
were all these people talking about the polls. They remember it. In 
June, I was in third place, at 25 percent. I've been buried more times 
than the undertaker's old suit. [Laughter] But you didn't quit because 
you had this idea that we could do something together to make a 

[[Page 1470]]

    And then, after I got in, California had earthquakes, fires, 
floods--[laughter]--everything but the lotus arrived for you. [Laughter] 
And we just kept plugging away and didn't give up. And now, we had to 
rebuild a freeway, rebuild Cal State, Northridge. We had to do a lot of 
things, but I did try to help. And I appreciate that.
    So 7\1/2\ years later, thanks to your work and your faith and the 
support I got from the people of California, along with Al Gore and our 
whole team, we've got the longest economic expansion in history and the 
highest homeownership in history and over 22 million new jobs and the 
lowest Hispanic- and African-American unemployment rate ever recorded 
and a 20-year low in poverty, a 25-year low in crime, a 32-year low in 
the welfare rolls. The air is cleaner. The water is cleaner. The food is 
safer. We set aside more land to be protected in history in the lower 48
