BRIAN NELSON, CNN ANCHOR: I want to take you now to Denver, where President Clinton is speaking. He's holding a news conference and talking about the USS Cole. Let's take the president live.
(JOINED IN PROGRESS)
WILLIAM J. CLINTON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: They were just good American citizens. Most of them, if you saw in your local press today, very young, most of them trying to find their way in life by serving their country.
And we should all be very, very grateful to them.
And I'm leaving tomorrow afternoon to go to the Middle East, and we're going to try to find way to get the parties to agree to end the violence and get back to the hard business of making peace.
I wanted to come here today to do this for several reasons. First, I wanted a chance to thank the people of Colorado before the election for the friendship and support and partnerships I've enjoyed here during the eight years that Al Gore and I have served in Washington...
NELSON: Moving on from the USS Cole to other political affairs. We'll keep monitoring his speech in case, his news conference in case there's anything else.
