    John McCain on Sen. Obama's dormant remarks on the coal industry: “We found out yesterday what Senator Obama really thinks about coal. In a new video talking about his policies on coal, he told the San Francisco Chronicle, “if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them.” “Now, I believe we need to control emissions,” added McCain, “but I’m not going to let our coal industry go bankrupt. I’m not going to let coal workers lose their jobs and I’m not going to let energy prices increase even more for our families.”...

    Kansas City, Oct 31, 2008 (CNA).- Bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph Robert Finn has reminded the faithful that their salvation is at stake in the battle for holiness. Decrying the “casual manner” in which many Christians live within the “culture of death,” he urged Catholics to “stand up fearlessly against the agents of death.” Writing in his October 29 column for the Catholic Key, Bishop Finn began by recounting his recent celebration of a Traditional Latin High Mass, saying it highlights our participation with the Communion of Saints and its elements give us a “striking image of the Heavenly Jerusalem”...

    For five years Ali and Mohammed have lived alongside US soldiers in their Baghdad neighbourhood near Rasheed Street, a prominent commercial artery running through the heart of the Iraqi capital. During that time American culture and politics have become familiar to them, and they say that if they could, they would vote for Republican candidate John McCain in next week's US presidential election. "McCain would be best for Iraq because he would ensure stability," said Ali, 66, an expert on the Sumerian era. The personal qualities and political platforms of McCain and his Democrat rival Barack Obama are of little...

    PHILADELPHIA - Hillary Rodham Clinton is on her way to becoming the biggest loser of this election. If he wins tomorrow, Barack Obama will certainly be his party's standard-bearer in 2012 - icing Clinton out of the White House for at least eight years. And she'll be nearly 70 in 2016 - a young sprout compared to John McCain but probably too old to carry the flag for the newly recast party of youth and hope. Until then, Clinton will be exiled to the Senate to serve out her second term, more like a sentence than a term for the...

    The Minnesota U.S. Senate race remains a tossup on the final weekend of the campaign, with the outcome likely to be decided by who can snatch away the most voters from third-party contender Dean Barkley. A new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll shows DFLer Al Franken clinging to a slim lead over Republican Sen. Norm Coleman among likely voters, 42 percent to 38 percent. That's within the poll's 4.1 percentage point margin of sampling error. Independence Party candidate Barkley, who held steady at 18 percent in the two previous Minnesota Polls, slipped three points to 15 percent. The fluid nature of...

    WASHINGTON – Counting down to Election Day, Barack Obama appears within reach of becoming the nation's first black president as the epic campaign draws to a close against a backdrop of economic crisis and lingering war. John McCain, the battle-scarred warrior, holds out hope for a Truman-beats-Dewey-style upset. Whoever wins, the country's 44th president will immediately confront some of the most difficult economic challenges since the Great Depression. In that effort, he'll almost surely be working with a stronger Democratic majority in Congress, as well as among governors and state legislatures nationwide.

    I just finished a nice chat with an Obama supporter looking to get out the vote. He asked me who I was voting for - and looking like he was ready to come up with a compelling argument why I should vote for Obama. I told him that is between me and the voting booth. He was taken aback. I've heard of how they can be confrontational and I wasn't going to play their game. I thanked him for coming. If you do get an Obama supporter coming to your door or calling your phone, treat them with kindness and...

    LIMA, OH — The muzzle is off. Joe Biden stopped by a local burger joint for late night take-out, but wound up taking 12 minutes of questions from national reporters who haven’t been able to talk to the Delaware Senator since a flight to Kalispell, MT on September 7th. So did the gaffe-prone VP nominee feel pressure from the campaign not to talk to the press? “If I’m muzzled, I don’t know,” Biden said. “I’ve done 200 interviews. I’ve been doing, you know, half a dozen to a dozen satellite feeds everyday. I’m doing shows, I mean, so, no one...

    LAND O' LAKES, Fla. -- A nudist community on Florida's west coast wants to be allowed a clothing-optional polling site. The Caliente Resorts, located in Pasco County north of Tampa, has approached election officials about the idea. There are more than 350 potential voters who live at the nudist resort full time, MyFOX Tampa Bay reported. Another 200 people work there, many of whom also work with little or no clothing. Nothing in state law would prohibit it, but the supervisor of elections says he is opposed to creating any new precincts before redistricting in 2010.

    To: Interested Parties From: Rick Davis, Campaign Manager Date: October 31, 2008 RE: The Final Push The State of the Campaign All the major polls have shown a tightening in the race and a significant narrowing of the numbers. In John McCain's typical pattern, he is closing strong and surprising the pundits. We believe this race is winnable, and if the trajectory continues, we will surpass the 270 Electoral votes needed on Election Night. National Polls: Major polls last week showed John McCain trailing by double-digit margins - but by the middle of this week, we were within the margin...
