Speaking to a prominent pro-Israel lobbying group, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman pledged Sunday that a Gore-Lieberman administration would be dedicated to the Middle East peace process. The Democratic vice presidential nominee told leaders of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, assembled in Chicago for a national summit, that Al Gore would continue his long history of support for Israel if he is elected president. "For two decades, Al Gore has worked to strengthen the U.S.

At 9:15 Tuesday night soap-opera star Nancy Lee Grahn, who plays attorney Alexis Davis on ABC's "General Hospital," stepped in front of a banner that read "Daytime for Gore/Lieberman" and, wearing a long black skirt and pink leather jacket, faced a bank of television cameras. The political gathering for Democratic soap-opera stars had started more than an hour late.

Dick Cheney recently blasted Al Gore and Joseph I. Lieberman "for 'hypocrisy' for lashing at Hollywood marketing and then turning around to 'schmooze' and take millions in contributions" (Sept. 15). Fine argument, except they took contributions from some of the world's leading creative artists, including Barbra Streisand and Steven Spielberg. Gore did not, to my knowledge, take any money from Silver Screen Management Co., which had George W. Bush on its board of directors when it made the terrifyingly gory murder movie "The Hitcher" (Sept.

To some Democrats in Hollywood, putative vice presidential nominee Joseph I. Lieberman's attacks on movie and television studios rankled. To some Democrats in the real world, they were welcome, even helpful. "There are a lot of families with children who think that things have gone too far," said Dorothy James, a Detroit delegate and the mother of two who nodded her approval. "There are a lot of parents who are concerned."

It's the center, stupid. In 1992, the Clinton campaign mantra was, "It's the economy, stupid." This was posted in the campaign war room as a constant reminder to Clinton aides. But in 2000, especially in California, it's all about capturing the center. And that's why the selection of Connecticut Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman as Al Gore's running mate makes so much sense in this state. Californians have gotten into the habit of electing centrists at the top of the ticket: Gov. Gray Davis. Sen.

It is not surprising that one of the first things Hillary Rodham Clinton did after Al Gore's historic announcement of his running mate was to dial 911 for Joseph I. Lieberman. After a year of traveling from New York state's pristine dairy country hamlets to its leafy suburbs and teeming inner-city neighborhoods, Mrs. Clinton remains stuck in political quicksand. To bolster her bid for the U.S.

The battle for the White House echoed in the halls of Congress on Tuesday as the two would-be vice presidents tried to rally their political bases for the stretch drive of the legal and political fight between Al Gore and George W. Bush. Dick Cheney, Bush's running mate, was careful not to present himself as vice president-presumptive but spent most of his time with GOP lawmakers talking about assembling a Cabinet. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.

Unlike some of his Democratic colleagues on the Senate panel probing campaign finance abuses, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut does not squirm when talking about embattled former fund-raiser John Huang. He does not hem and haw, clear his throat or say the man who raised tainted contributions for the Democratic National Committee may have engaged in wrongdoing. "Scandalous" is Lieberman's blunt description of Huang's activities during the 1996 campaign.

Two influential senators, John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.), teamed up Friday to develop legislation that would cap greenhouse gas emissions and create a trading system to reward companies that do more than their share to combat climate change. Their announcement builds on growing momentum in the Senate to address global warming with legislation now that President Bush has ended U.S. participation in the Kyoto accord, an international effort to attack global warming.
