Here's a short list of Democrats who secretly hope Mitt Romney gets his presidential campaign turned around fast and gives President Obama a run for his money: Heidi Heitkamp, the Democratic Senate candidate in North Dakota; Jon Tester, the Democratic senator from Montana; and Rep. Shelley Berkley, the Democratic Senate candidate in Nevada. Why? Because they're all in close Senate races - and they're all worried about a potential flood of Republican money into their states if Romney's campaign begins to look like a losing proposition.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - A barrage of missiles fired by U.S. drones killed at least 18 people in northwest Pakistan on Friday, the latest in a flurry of attacks in a tribal region along the Afghan border that soon may become the site of the new Pakistani offensive against Taliban militants. Local intelligence sources said the drone strikes hit militant compounds and vehicles in North Waziristan. The area is home to militants from the Haqqani network, an affiliate of the Afghan Taliban that targets U.S., NATO and Afghan forces in Afghanistan, as well as the Pakistani Taliban, pockets of Al Qaeda fighters and other militant groups.

As Pakistan forges ahead with its bid to uproot Taliban fighters from tribal areas along the border with Afghanistan, its troops are bypassing an enemy that the Obama administration desperately wants confronted. Rather than expand on its gains in South Waziristan and drive into North Waziristan to tackle the Haqqani network -- a wing of the Taliban that views U.S. and NATO-led troops in Afghanistan as its principal target -- the Pakistani military is now focusing its attention on driving Taliban militants from their strongholds in the surrounding tribal regions of Kurram, Orakzai and Khyber.

President Alija Izetbegovic of Bosnia-Herzegovina appealed to President Clinton on Wednesday to let his beleaguered Balkan country join the NATO-affiliated Partnership for Peace, a step that he considers necessary before U.S. and allied peacekeeping troops withdraw next year as planned. But Clinton, administration officials said, left little doubt that the force will depart on schedule in June 1998, whether Izetbegovic's government is ready or not.

A key Los Angeles panel voted Thursday to oppose a plan to ban large chain stores in Chinatown, despite pressure from labor-allied groups who are fighting Wal-Mart's effort to expand in the area. On a 5-2 vote, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission adopted a recommendation against the ban written by officials in the city's Planning Department. Planners determined that a ban would not conform to city policies and could hurt the neighborhood's economy. They also said a ban was not needed because there has not been a proliferation of new chain stores in the area.

A war over trash is about to break out at Los Angeles City Hall. And the ensuing lobbying is expected to be long and costly, with the outcome potentially affecting residents, businesses, workers and a quarter-billion-dollar-a-year industry across the city. The opening clash is set for Monday, when labor and environmental groups will square off against waste haulers and business interests to determine how trash is picked up from tens of thousands of the city's businesses and large apartment buildings.

President Obama's reelection campaign raked in $86 million in the second quarter of the year, far eclipsing the amounts raised by his Republican opponents and bolstering his accounts for an ongoing clash with well-funded GOP-allied groups. The haul highlighted the fundraising advantages of incumbency: The entire field of Republican candidates is expected to report raising about $35 million. Obama's campaign manager, Jim Messina, touted the tally in a video message to supporters released Wednesday.

President Obama's advisors are confident that liberals dismayed by his agreement to extend tax breaks for the wealthy will forgive him by the time the 2012 election kicks into gear. But the current backlash on the left may intensify the immediate challenge Democrats face in building a new campaign finance apparatus to challenge Republican-allied outside groups that flexed their muscles in this year's midterm election. Democratic operatives are already laying plans to set up new independent expenditure committees that can raise unlimited funds, and hope to enroll early contributors to establish a beachhead for the coming campaign.

For Ed Frost, empty pesticide containers have become a symbol of all that's wrong in government. Because anywhere he puts them, someone starts to holler. Water quality inspectors want them stored inside, out of the rain and off the ground. But fire code enforcers want them kept outside, since state law prohibits trash inside buildings. "We're just being regulated to death," said Frost, manager of Oxnard Pest Control. And Frost intends to do something about it.
