>BILL WANTED UFO PROBE: HUBBELL BOOK
>By DEBORAH ORIN
>President Clinton was intrigued by UFOs and wanted to know if they really

>official Webb Hubbell.
>Hubbell says finding out about UFOs was one of the top priorities Clinton
>gave him in sending him over to a job as one of Attorney General Janet
>Reno's top deputies.
>Clinton had said, "if I put you over at Justice I want you to find the
>answers to two questions for me," Hubbell recounts.
>"One, who killed JFK. And two, are there UFOs."
>"Clinton was dead serious. I had looked into both, but wasn't satisfied
>with the answers I was getting," Hubbell adds.
>Hubbell describes his failure to find out about JFK and UFOs as a big
>regret when he had to resign as associate attorney general and pleaded
>guilty to bilking law clients of $482,000.
>Whitewater figure Jim McDougal has said Hubbell - who worked closely with
>Mrs. Clinton and former White House lawyer Vincent Foster at Little Rock's
>Rose law Firm - "knows where the bodies are buried" on the land deal, but
>he stays pretty closed-mouthed in the book "Friends in High Places."
>The book touched off a courtroom battle when Whitewater counsel Ken Starr
>tried to subpoena early drafts. Starr backed off, and in any case
>Hubbell's book insists he can't remember much.
>But Hubbell does toss out a tantalizing aside in examining why Bill
>Clinton decided against running for president in 1988: a remark from
>Hillary that, "We've got to straighten up Whitewater."
>The book portrays Hillary Clinton as an ambitious woman who dreamed of
>succeeding her husband as Arkansas governor and paints Bill Clinton as
>someone unable to face his wife on whether she should use his last name or
>Hubbell recounts that in 1981, after Clinton got beaten for re-election as
>Arkansas governor - a campaign in which his wife's use of her maiden name,
>Rodham, was an issue - he asked Hubbell to press her to change her name.
>He quotes Clinton as saying: "She needs to do this ... Webb, you're her
>friend. Will you talk to her about it?"
>Hubbell says he did so and Mrs. Clinton agreed - "but I suspect it hurt
>for some reasons she's never understood herself."
>Later in 1990, Hillary Clinton seriously talked of running to succeed her
>husband as Arkansas governor when Bill Clinton seemed bored with the job,
>"Hillary had actually floated her candidacy past Vince Foster and me in
>the event that Bill didn't run," writes Hubbell, then a law partner of
>Mrs. Clinton's and Foster's.
>"We questioned whether if the reason Bill wasn't running was he had been
