This could be a number of things:
1. dirty contacts/ sluggish solenoid action (gummed up) on starter solenoid
2. sluggish security relay (Goodfella had a thread on this)
3. dirty/worn out ignition key unit in the column (several threads on how to fix/clean this)
4. dirty/worn out clutch switch.
There are also probably some other possibilities, but those came immediately to mind.
