Influential political figures whose intense battle against gangsta rap helped pressure Time Warner Inc. to unload its rap music label have a new target: daytime TV talk shows. At a Washington press conference Thursday, William J. Bennett, the nation's former drug czar and current co-director of Empower America, and Sens. Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.) and Sam Nunn (D-Ga.) launched a campaign to get rid of the televised talkfests that they claim debase American culture and cause harm to children.

Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman pushed the Democratic ticket's health care plan as he stumped through Southern California on Tuesday, avoiding the charged subjects of faith and popular culture that he has tackled in recent days. At the Children's Hospital in San Diego, the Democratic vice presidential nominee promised that he and Vice President Al Gore will help get every child access to health insurance by 2005. "Why do you get involved in government?"

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.

Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.) said Friday he'll try to subpoena the White House for information on staff contacts with Enron Corp. officials unless the administration promises to provide the material by the end of the month.

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.
