By Gary Levin NEW YORK -- John McCain made peace Thursday with David Letterman, three weeks after the presidential candidate drew the comedian's wrath by abruptly canceling an appearance under false pretenses only to head for a sitdown with news anchor Katie Couric. In an extended interview on CBS' Late Show, McCain said he "screwed up" but added: "Look at all the conversation I gave you. I haven't had so much fun since my last interrogation." Letterman didn't press McCain on why he...

Maybe you remember "Dave." It was a 1993 movie starring Kevin Kline as Dave Kovic, an everyday guy who happens to be a dead ringer for the president. When the chief executive is stricken, his aides secretly recruit Dave to fill in for him. Problem is, Dave quickly begins to lose himself in the role. There's a wonderful scene where, trying to find money in the federal budget to fund a homeless shelter, Dave turns to his friend Murray, an accountant, for help. "Who does these books?" asks...

By Dennis Prager Just as Charlie Gibson did in his interview with Sarah Palin, Katie Couric set out to humiliate the Republican vice presidential candidate with a series of "gotcha" questions. This tactic - rarely employed with major liberal candidates - could be used equally effectively against Couric, or most any other liberal member of the television news media. It would be highly instructive to have Couric asked questions in the same way in which she (and Gibson) asked questions of...

By Jeff Simon "Gotcha journalism" John McCain called it Monday night in a high- pitched querulous voice as he sat next to his vice presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin. He was discussing with Katie Couric criticism of the woman he chose above all Americans, great and small, to be his No. 2. He seemed almost as annoyed that Couric continued to address questions to Palin while he was sitting just six inches to her right. McCain and Palin were trying to stem the tide of criticism and mockery...

By Amy Westfeldt Associated Press NEW YORK -- Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin defended her remark that the proximity of Russia to her home state of Alaska gives her foreign policy experience, explaining in a CBS interview airing Thursday that "we have trade missions back and forth." Palin has never visited Russia and until last year the 44-year- old Alaska governor had never traveled outside North America. She also had never met a foreign leader until her trip this week to...

NEW YORK - Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said Wednesday that the U.S. could be headed for another Great Depression if Congress doesn't act on the financial crisis. Palin made the comment in an interview with CBS anchor Katie Couric while visiting New York to meet foreign leaders. As Palin sought to establish her credentials in world affairs, first lady Laura Bush said that Palin lacked sufficient foreign policy experience but was "a quick study." The CBS interview was...

Palin - who scheduled a series of meetings Tuesday with world leaders who were in town for the UN General Assembly - sat down first with President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan, who...

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin Thursday said the United States might have to go to war if Georgia joined NATO and Russia invaded Georgia again, ABC News reported. In her first media interview since becoming Republican presidential nominee John McCain's pick for running mate, Palin told ABC's Charlie Gibson the Russian invasion of Georgia was "unacceptable." Gibson asked if the NATO treaty requires the United States to go to war if Georgia joins NATO and Russia invades again. "Perhaps so," she...

By Martha T. Moore Nearly two weeks after she was chosen as John McCain's running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin sits down today for her first talk without a script. Since Palin made her debut Aug. 29, the Republican vice presidential nominee has not taken questions from voters or from news reporters. On Sunday, the McCain campaign announced she would give interviews today and Friday to ABC anchorman Charles Gibson. The first segment will air at 6:30 p.m. ET on the network's evening...
