Stories about White House aide DAVID GERGEN's amazing competence and closeness to the President appeared within a few days of one another last week in the Washington Post, Vanity Fair, Newsweek and TIME. We asked some observers how long Gergen's press honeymoon will last.

As long as the heat wave
"The first time he gets caught in the inevitable Big Lie, the honeymoon will sour."
SENATOR ROBERT DOLE
