16 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Virtue or job performance? Public standards " By PATRICIA ZAPOR Catholic News Service WASHINGTON (CNS) Poll after poll shows the American public is more pleased with the way things are going in the country than they are worried by sex-scandal accusations against their presi- dent. That apparently came as a surprise to many political com- mentators. But the director of the Center for Ethics at Loyola University in Chicago thinks it demonstrates that the public has a two-pronged sense of what matters to the coun- try -- while people want their president to represent national virtue, the possibility that he doesn't meet that standard means far less than whether he meets other standards. said recent polls show that pub- lic expectations of the president as national leader don't neces- sarily have much to do with whether he represents an admirable national image of morality. "The country recognizes there are two parts to the job," Ozar said. "They want a person who is able to do the policy, the admin- istrative job, right. But they also want an admirable person." He contrasted U.S. expecta- tions of the president to the standard in countries with a parliamentary form of govern- ment. A prime minister's job is almost entirely about being a good administrator, Ozar said. But the U.S. presidency carries the additional burden of-repre- senting "national qualities."

Recent events show, however, that this stan- dard matters most "when what we learn about someone does- n't fit our picture of him." Given the history of accusa- tions about Clinton having extramarital relationships with women, the current allegations don't necessarily change most people's image of him, accord- ing to Ozar. "There are no doubt some people who say 'he's a slime- ball, but he's a good adminis- trator,"' Ozar said. In comparison, Ozar noted that former President Jimmy Vanderburgh Co.

Carter was soundly trounced by Ronald Reagan in his 1980 re- election bid. "Most people don't feel this is going to take the country down," is how Ozar interprets polls showing 67 percent of the public believe Clinton is doing a good job as president. That support increased from about 47 percent in polls taken just before the accusations hit the UNITED SOUTHWEST BANK I WASHINGTON-SHOALS-LOOGOOTEE 1-800-254-0064 Fax (812) 254-7857 t I news Jan. 21.
