Ms. Johnson was treated and released.
Ms. McGrady suffered facial cuts.
Clinton aide will stay on
WASHINGTON -- White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles, widely rumored to be leaving his post in January, said Monday he will stay on until he has fulfilled his promises to President Clinton.
Asked whether he was close to completing what the president asked him to do, Bowles responded with a laugh: "He's added a few things to that checklist."
