President Clinton won a victory, though with no room to spare, when the Senate voted 50-50 not to lift the White House -- supported arms embargo against Bosnia. Senate minority leader Bob Dole, backed by most Republicans and some Democrats, went after the Clinton policy in an effort to give the besieged Bosnians more firepower to fend off the better armed Serbs. White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers welcomed the vote as a confirmation of the President's Bosnia stance -- a policy, BTW, that candidate Clinton had railed against. Dole said he'd try it again.parpar
