    He needs strong support from the Hispanic community,
    otherwise expect a repeat of the Simon/Davis race
    on the blue/red county map.

    HEADLINE: Candidates for Senate Hold Final Rallies

    California's historic dual Senate campaign ended Monday with
    Democrats Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer pledging to work as "a team
    for change," while Republicans John Seymour and Bruce Herschensohn
    stumped traditional GOP strongholds.
    
       The votes of more than 11 million Californians--1.1 million more than
    in the last presidential election in 1988--are expected to be cast, many
    at 25,914 polling places across the state today, officials predicted.
    
       The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
    
       The weather was expected to encourage a high turnout, with forecasters
    predicting a warm Election Day, sunny and dry throughout California.
    
       Feinstein, strongly favored over opponent Seymour, and Boxer, locked
    in a tight race with conservative television commentator Herschensohn,
    flew from Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo to San Francisco in a final,
    election eve push for votes. Seymour and Herschensohn, in a departure
    from customary GOP togetherness, campaigned separately.
    
       "I truly believe that the people of this state will lead the movement:
    The status quo must go!" Feinstein said in a boisterous pep rally in West
    Hollywood meant, in part, to promote the election of two women senators.
    
       "The people in this state want a team for change."
    
       Seymour, campaigning in Rancho Cucamonga, countered: "I think what
    Californians are really concerned about in this election are jobs and the
    future," he said, insisting his campaign still hoped for an upset.
    
       In addition to the presidential and U.S. Senate races, Californians
    will elect 52 members of Congress and 100 members of the state
    Legislature--all 80 members of the Assembly and half of the 40 state
    senators. Democrat Bill Clinton is expected to win the state's 54
    electoral votes, but partisan battles for control of the Assembly and the
    congressional delegation were being waged up until the last minute.
    
       The ballot also includes 13 statewide propositions, including
    controversial right-to-die, health insurance, welfare cuts, budget
    powers, and congressional term limits initiatives.
    
       It is the first time in the state's history that both Senate seats are
    on the same ballot. Feinstein, the former mayor of San Francisco, and
    Seymour, the appointed incumbent, are competing to fill the last two
    years of the term vacated by Pete Wilson when he became governor.
    
       Boxer and Herschensohn are vying for the six-year seat held by
    retiring Sen. Alan Cranston. Their tight race continued to attract the
    most attention.
    
       Appearing tired but determined, Herschensohn attended an early morning
    airport rally in El Centro before flying to San Diego for a luncheon
    speech before the City Club. He discussed his flat-tax proposal and
    warned a group of Huntington Beach students that the nation's huge
    deficit is tantamount to stealing from future generations.
    
       "My generation has stolen from you and your kids, when you have them,"
    he told an auditorium of about 150 students. "I am sorry because it is a
    dirty trick. . . . We have become, by law, common thieves. We have been
    signing your name on credit cards."
    
       At the San Diego luncheon, Herschensohn again faced questions about
    the disclosure Friday that he visited a nude dance club and buys adult
    magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse.
    
       A woman in the audience, who described herself only as a life-long
    Republican, asked Herschensohn how he could reconcile such behavior with
    his strong support from the religious right.
    
       "I believe in people having the right to do what they want,"
    Herschensohn said. "My protest has been against the National Endowment
    for the Arts because people aren't doing what they want. What if you
    don't want to finance pornography?"
    
       Asked by the woman if he considers Playboy and Penthouse to be
    pornographic, Herschensohn said he did not know. "It depends on the
    edition of Playboy or Penthouse," he said. "I mean, I just don't want to
    say that with absolute certainty. I don't know. It depends on what you're
    looking for. Nor do I want to get into a discussion of it."
    
       Later, at a news conference, Herschensohn, who has embraced the GOP
    "family values" platform, appeared to acknowledge that some of his views
    do not jibe with the philosophy and tenets of the religious right, which
    has helped to raise money for his candidacy.
    
       He said that as long as adult magazines are kept out of children's
    hands, and as long as localities are allowed to control the distribution,
    then he would have to disagree with those who would ban Playboy,
    Penthouse and similar publications.
    
       "I don't believe in censorship," he said. "I believe very much in
    ensuring children don't get a hold of these things. But when you are old
    enough, when you are an adult, you should be able to make your own
    decisions."
    
       On Sunday, Herschensohn had defended his decision to patronize the
    Seventh Veil nude club in Hollywood with his Bob Mulholland, a
    top-ranking state Democratic Party official who was suspended for acting
    without party authorization.
    
       Boxer has denied having anything to do with making the disclosure, and
    she was forced to do so again Monday when questioned by reporters.
    
       "His private life is his private life," she said. "I want to talk
    about his public life, his positions."
    
       Boxer, joining Feinstein at the West Hollywood rally and on the
    fly-around to Bakersfield, San Luis Obispo and San Francisco, said the
    "clear difference" between her liberal views and Herschensohn's
    conservative views opposing abortion and favoring off-shore oil drilling
    should be the basis upon which voters cast their ballots.
    
       In urging supporters to get out the vote, Boxer said she would end the
    era of "right-wing politics--where ideology blocks progress."
    
       "We can go back to the days of darkness with Bruce Herschensohn," she
    said, as the crowd interrupted her with shouts of "Never!" . . . "Or do
    we want a fighter for the people? We have a clear choice between a
    fighter and a teammate for Dianne, or an extremist who is out of touch
    with California."
    
       With Boxer's once commanding lead eroded to nearly nothing in several
    polls, Feinstein and Democratic Party officials were eager to extend some
    coattails to the Marin County congresswoman.  Team  was the
    catchword of the day, and Feinstein referred to herself and Boxer as the
    "new Cagney and Lacey."
    
       Given a 14-point lead over Seymour in last week's Field Poll,
    Feinstein positively beamed with confidence. At the West Hollywood
    appearance, she joked with Boxer and seemed to relish the chants of
    "Dianne! Dianne!" that filled a crowded campaign headquarters on Santa
    Monica Boulevard.
    
       She urged followers to elect "a team that will give us an economic
    growth strategy, an invest-in-America plan, pass a freedom of choice act
    and pass unpaid medical family leave."
    
       Later, at San Francisco's Delancey Street, Feinstein reflected on the
    last four years of traveling the campaign trail, from her grueling but
    unsuccessful bid for the governor's office in 1990 to the eve of what she
    hoped was victory.
    
       "For me this is a cumulation of four years, if you can believe it, on
    the campaign trail," she told a wildly cheering crowd of supporters.
    "Visiting every one of our 58 counties. Seeing in Technicolor the
    California dream, seeing where it's holding together and seeing where
    it's falling apart.
    
       "And let me tell you, there is no issue in this campaign as profound
    as the No. 1 family value of this country--a job."
    
       Seymour, meanwhile, was hopscotching from the Inland Empire to San
    Jose, San Diego and finally home turf in Orange County. He spoke to
    supporters at an aerospace factory in Rancho Cucamonga, and told
    reporters his campaign was "still looking for an upset."
    
       "The voters of California are very independent people," Seymour said,
    discounting the expectation that a big victory for Bill Clinton will help
    Democratic Senate candidates. "They vote for the candidate based on where
    they stand on the issues. That's what they'll do tomorrow."
    
       Speaking to factory workers, Seymour said:
    
       "You have a clear choice tomorrow when you go to the polls. . . . One
    answer for the future is more government in our lives, more government
    direction, more taxes, more federal mandates and more programs. Or, if
    you support John Seymour and vote for John Seymour, what you are going to
    get, I promise you, is less taxes, less government in your face and in
    your lives."

    Paddock contributed to this report.

    "No, only one, when you die, you create--you clone yourself, and you transfer that data information inside the brain of the person you clone, and then you can live eternally"

    If this is true, then there's no reason why anyone else's "data information" can't be added into your clone's brain. Nice way to control your clones and make them do what you want. Nevermind ethical considerations, this group has demonstrated they will do what suits them.

    The modern day Bismarck -- George W Bush -- needs to get the US out of the Balkans and cut American foreign policy losses. The European Union will have plenty of opportunity to fight a wide variety of opponents in Europe during this decade -- best the US honourably exfiltrate Bosnia under the cover of World War III.

    Iraq+Korea = WW III

    I assume that any action in Korea will require every spare US servicemen.
