      "Bush Era Heralds Marginalisation for Africa"
      Reuters (www.reuters.com) (12/18/00); Denyer, Simon
      Analysts say that the presidency of George W. Bush will
      probably leave Africa marginalized by the United States more than
      its current status due to an administration that will have little
      interest in the continent. There are two African-Americans in
      key roles in the upcoming administration, but neither is expected
      to push African issues, and Bush is also expected to rely on Vice
      President-elect Dick Cheney for foreign policy advice--and Cheney
      has a history of opposing sanctions against apartheid South
      Africa. President Bill Clinton reclassified the HIV-AIDS
      epidemic as a security issue and made other moves to support the
      continent's economy, but Bush has already said that Africa does
      not fit into U.S. strategic interests, and some analysts say that
      American support could be reduced during the new administration.
      One expert notes that U.S. interest in Africa may move from aid
      to trade.
