  • WARM RESPONSE ORDERED: Clinton files released today included this letter from then-Gov. Mike Huckabee and a hand-written note on political dimensions.

The release continues of papers from the Clinton White House.

A full list is here.

Subjects range from Whitewater to Monica Lewinsky to a U.S. Supreme Court vacancy that President Clinton wanted to fill in 1994 with Appeals Court Judge Richard Arnold of Little Rock. But he pulled back on account of concerns about Arnold's health and nominated Stephen Breyer. Today's documents include a draft of a nomination speech for Arnold.

The Lewinsky documents illustrate the immense effort devoted to coping with media attention to the intern scandal.

Papers include First Lady Hillary Clinton's work on health care reform. Other big events are included, too, including the Oklahoma City bombing.

Could well be some meat in this dump.
