DUBLIN, Ireland (AP) -- With the Irish prime minister at his side, President Clinton declared Tuesday that the stakes are too great in Northern Ireland to let the peace process sputter to a halt. "The people have embraced the peace and I don't think they want to go back," he said.
Wasting no time after his arrival in Dublin, the president conferred with Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern about the uneasy state of play in Northern Ireland.
They went together to a Guinness brewery in Dublin, where Clinton greeted Irish lawmakers and business leaders.
