    Electoral College Projections: Bush 286, Kerry 253 The votes from New Mexico are now showing a Bush victory of almost 30,000 votes with 100% of precincts reporting. Bush currently leads in Iowa by 11,000 votes with only 36 precincts remaining. In Ohio Bush presently leads by a virtually insurmountable 140,000 votes with only 2% of precincts remaining. The facts are becoming clear and now we have an electoral vote total to back it: as LST has called it, President Bush has been reelected with a strong majority. Senator Kerry currently leads in Michigan and Wisconsin, though neither is enough to...

    The late, great columnist Murray Kempton said editorial writers were like partisan fighters who come down out of the hills after the battle and shoot the wounded. There is some truth to that, but I have a kinder, gentler simile in mind. J.M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, used to ask children to sit with him in his box during performances of his famous play. After the curtain came down one night Barrie turned to the little boy he had invited and asked: "So what part did you like best?" The little boy said, "The part I liked best...

    Readers take apart the Chronicle By Kevin Whited Several readers emailed today to point out problems with Chronicle copy:Greg Gotlieb notes the following: Cleland, a fellow Vietnam veteran who lost three limbs during the war, was defeated in the 2002 election after Republicans questioned his patriotism. Cleland has been a political martyr of sorts for Kerry as he accuses Republicans of trying to tear down real American patriots. That excerpt came from an AP story that ran in the Chronicle and in many other news outlets. It shows just how pervasive the bias in the mainstream news media is, and...

    Freudian slip The Chronicle has since corrected the problem in this story, but a google news search currently confirms an alert from a reader earlier: John Edwards a good and expedient choice Houston Chronicle, TX - 12 hours ago ... President Kerry overlooked Edwards' slim political experience because the son of a mill worker is an effective campaigner who excites the party faithful and ...

    AUSTIN -- Erica Anthony-Benavides is a junior at Trinity University in San Antonio, a member of Ladies in Physics and not very politically active. But because she signed a petition against the war in Iraq, a national conservative Internet site has declared her an enemy of America. "I don't know why they want to accuse us of treason. It's not fair. We haven't done anything. We've just said something that somebody doesn't like," said Anthony-Benavides, a native of Corpus Christi. Anthony-Benavides, 19, has been swept up in a new Internet war between the right and left in America that is...
