Yeltsin 'In Charge'

CHICAGO () -- President Bill Clinton said Sunday President Boris Yeltsin was in control in the Kremlin although he obviously had health problems.


"He is clearly in charge," Clinton said in an interview with CNN television during a four-day whistle-stop train journey to the Democratic Party convention in Chicago.


"We all know that he was exhausted after the [presidential] campaign, that he's had some health problems. But I want to assure everybody that's what they are -- health problems," Clinton said, adding, "There's no question he's making the big decisions."
