Officials in Duval County, Fla., said 736 write-in ballots were cast in the presidential election for Hillary Clinton, Steven Colbert and other non-candidates. Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland's office said Clinton, the Democratic senator from New York, was the top write-in presidential vote-getter, while former presidential contenders Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas; former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney; former Sen. Fred Thompson, R-Tenn.; and former New York...

By The Associated Press SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden on Sunday accused the McCain campaign of trying to distract Americans from their economic woes by launching "unbecoming personal attacks" at Barack Obama. Appearing at a boisterous rally near his childhood home, Biden said John McCain's campaign is desperate to change the subject from the financial crisis that has wiped out many Americans'college and retirement savings. He said McCain has...

Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton returned to their roots, taking their message to blue-collar voters in Pennsylvania. The two U.S. senators stumped Sunday in Scranton in hard-scrabble northeast Pennsylvania, an area that was cool to Democratic standard-bearer Barack Obama in the state primary, The Washington Post reported Monday. "It took a Democratic president to clean up after the last President Bush; it's going to take a Democratic president to clean...

By Sandy Grady T he only certainty in Thursday night's vice presidential debate is that Sarah Palin will not imitate Ross Perot's running mate James Stockdale, who began his 1992 debate with the bewildered line: "Who am I? Why am I here?" Anyone within earshot of a TV set knows who Palin is -- the hockey-mom, beauty-contest-winning, moose-hunting Alaska governor who injected an adrenaline rush into John McCain's campaign. Her sudden celebrityhood is the sole reason the debate...

Friday evening in Oxford, Miss., Barack Obama and John McCain will meet in the first presidential debate of 2008, and this dramatic campaign will in all likelihood reach another turning point. The matchup could have come much earlier, but Obama turned down McCain's invitation to join in a series of joint town hall meetings during the summer. That would have allowed both men to ease into personal confrontation with relatively small audiences and similarly modest stakes. Now, they meet with...

By DAVID S. BRODER ST. PAUL, Minn. - This one was really different. John McCain has flummoxed the leaders of his Republican Party and most of the media by picking Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. It's a choice no other candidate conceivably could have made - a typical McCain gamble, unpredictable in its consequences. The least plausible part of the McCain camp's scenario for Palin is the hope that she will help capture dissident Hillary Clinton voters. If my reporting in New...

Republican U.S. vice presidential pick Sarah Palin says Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama likely regrets not making Hillary Clinton his running mate. "I think he's regretting not picking her now, I do," Palin told ABC News in interviews this week. "What, what determination and grit and even grace through some tough shots that were fired her way -- she handled those well." Clinton, a senator from New York who has said little publicly about Palin, is stepping up her campaigning for...

By David Usborne THE CAMPAIGN team behind Barack Obama has been regrouping after 10 days of media fascination with Republican vice-presidential pick Sarah Palin, dispatching Hillary Clinton into Florida and advertising a lunch summit this week between their candidate and Bill Clinton. Democrats sense trouble as John McCain, the Republican nominee, rides a surge in his poll ratings which seem to reflect his bringing Mrs Palin, the Governor of Alaska, on to his ticket. A new CNN/ Opinion...

By Susan Estrich MY FIRST reaction to the choice of Sarah Palin was that she is no Hillary Clinton. I give her credit for her drive and determination, her willingness to take on special interests and her sheer guts in challenging the Republican establishment of her state. But less than two years as governor? And before that, mayor of a city of about 7,000? Would any man with such a thin resume have made it to the top of John McCain's list? Dan Quayle in a skirt, one of my wittier and...

By DeWayne Wickham Just when it seemed Hillary Clinton had been pushed to the back bench of the presidential campaign, she's being asked to step up her appearances on behalf of Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama. The request came in the wake of presidential candidate John McCain's announcement Friday that he had chosen Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate on the GOP ticket. The Obama campaign is now talking to Clinton about how often she can stump for Obama, who beat...
