By Greg Toppo, USA TODAY If there's one feature that defines the presidential debate on education, it's this: near silence. The USA's teetering economy and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have all but squeezed out education, a topic important to previous elections. Sen. John McCain focused on it in two speeches to civil rights groups last summer. Sen. Barack Obama, meanwhile, has spoken in detail about schools more often than his rival -- his campaign lists 12 education speeches in the...

By David Jackson A feisty John McCain rallied the Republican faithful on Monday, unveiling an edgier stump speech for the final three weeks of the presidential campaign and vowing to fight aggressively through Nov. 4. Before a Virginia Beach crowd in a state usually in the Republican column, McCain shifted from attacking Democratic rival Barack Obama for ties to 1960s radical Bill Ayers and instead bristled that "the national media has written us off." "We've got them just where we want...

By Jackie Calmes, Jeff Zeleny and Brian Knowlton 21 days to the vote * With his presidential campaign gaining momentum on a tide of economic worries, Senator Barack Obama is adding emergency planks to an economic platform that he says is designed to help average Americans, and not just Wall Street, through the downturn.

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...

Both major-party U.S. presidential candidates favor expansion of nuclear power generation and it's just a question of how much, industry observers say. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, the Republican nominee, has called for the building of 45 nuclear power plants by 2030. His Democratic counterpart, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, is much more skeptical, though he also sees nuclear power as part of a future energy mix, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Monday. "Both candidates are...

By NICK SAMBIDES JR.; OF THE NEWS STAFF PRESQUE ISLE - Steve Turner couldn't meet Todd Palin's Sarah, but he made sure that Palin met his. "Hey, I've got a Sarah, too," Turner called to the husband of Alaska Gov. and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin during Todd Palin's stop in town at noon Sunday. "How about a picture with my Sarah?" "Sure," Todd Palin said, smiling, as 2 1/2-year-old Sarah Turner was hauled into the picture by her dad. Palin's brief stop at Harry's...

John McCain recently claimed that Sarah Palin "knows more about energy than anyone else in America," and in last Thursday's vice- presidential debate, Palin revealed that McCain expects her to lead his energy agenda. Given this weighty responsibility, it is cause for concern that she misstated so wildly the amount of energy produced by her own state (Alaska in fact supplies 3.5 percent, not 20 percent, of U.S. energy). Perhaps this comment was yet another of Palin's misstatements, but even...

By BETH FOUHY By Beth Fouhy The Associated Press ARLINGTON Republican John McCain vowed Sunday to "whip" Democratic rival Barack Obama's "you-know-what" when the two candidates meet Wednesday in their final televised debate. McCain made that pledge as top advisers said he is weighing new economic proposals to help the nation weather the financial crisis. The Arizona senator refused to answer a reporter's question Sunday about what plans he might be considering. Addressing...
