    Sen. Hillary Clinton went on the counterattack today, one day after a stinging defeat in the Iowa caucuses to Illinois Sen. Barack Obama. She said New Hampshire voters need to take a hard look at Obama, suggesting that they shouldn't just buy into his message of "hope" without analyzing his policies. Clinton said she wasn't suggesting anything in particular about Obama, but simply "drawing contrasts." "I'm running on my record. … I'm running on my plans," Clinton told reporters. "I think everybody needs to be vetted and tested. That's the way elections are supposed to operate. The last thing the...

    Here's a quote from a government employee who witnessed a recent interaction between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a train station in Sydney: "There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets on the evils of Australia. I politely declined to take one. An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young (20ish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined. The young protester put her hand on the old woman's shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice said, "Lady, don't you care about the...

    Outfitted as she was in her eye-grabbing hot pink (or was it orange?) pantsuit, it was difficult for restaurant patrons of Cafe Milano in Georgetown not to gaze upon Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York as she celebrated her 58th birthday Wednesday night with two of her closest friends. "There's the birthday girl," Terry McAuliffe said when a smiling Mrs. Clinton, born Oct. 26, 1947, arrived by her lonesome self just after 9 p.m., joining the former Democratic National Committee chairman and his wife, Dorothy, at a surprisingly accessible aisle table barely feet from the boisterous bar crowd. Mrs....

    White-haired Betty A. Gooch has hobbled into car dealerships across the Chicago area and chatted about her ailments with eager salesmen while admiring their shiny new vehicles, police and prosecutors said Tuesday. Each time, they said, the 75-year-old woman ended up writing a bad check for the full amount and driving home in a new car. Gooch of Algonquin is charged with five felonies in two counties, accused of using bad checks to buy new vehicles, including a $36,000 Toyota Sienna and a $20,000 Toyota Matrix. But police say they believe Gooch has taken advantage of about a dozen car...
