At what aides called his largest campaign rally ever, presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain recounted a visit he made earlier Sunday to a Hurricane Gustav emergency operations center to highlight his concern for affected communities and to showcase his new running mate, Sarah Palin. McCain and Palin had flown to Jackson, Miss., early Sunday for an hourlong briefing on preparations for the expected landfall of the monster storm. After the briefing, McCain spoke via video link from St. Louis to delegates and the media gathering in St. Paul, Minn.

Re "The 'real' America, really," Opinion, Oct. 23 Sarah Palin and John McCain have finally set me straight: I am not a "real" American because I live in Southern California. Apparently, I am not hardworking, although I have held responsible jobs since the age of 16. Patriotic? Not me -- although I have voted in every election for which I was eligible, fly my flag on every holiday and still shed tears on Veterans Day and 9/11. Pro-America? Not me -- although I proudly served in the Peace Corps in Niger, hopefully demonstrating that Americans were pretty neat people willing to get their hands dirty.

Three of the politicians seeking the nation's highest offices appeared in lengthy broadcast interviews Sunday, but the hottest topic for all of them was the missing fourth candidate -- Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. Palin, the Alaska governor whom Arizona Sen. John McCain selected as his running mate more than a week ago, has yet to make an unscripted public appearance. Instead, she has used her public events to deliver speeches, not to answer questions directly from voters or reporters.

Re "McCain vows own kind of change," Sept. 5 My head is spinning from having just watched John McCain's Republican nomination acceptance speech. He says the Republicans lost their way when they had total control of the government as they became corrupt and managed government poorly these last eight years. McCain's logic is that the answer is to elect him so he can bring back the same Republican crowd for a do-over. Now that is really the ultimate in political spin. Bob Didlock Cerritos McCain and Palin are running against the GOP and the failed policies of George W. Bush.

Re "Palin to be MIA on Sunday shows," Sept. 7 Rick Davis, an aide to John McCain, states that he and other Republican strategists would determine if or when it would serve their purpose to allow vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin to go on any televised news programs. He goes on to say that "if we think going on TV news shows are in our best interests, we'll do it. If we don't, we won't." Both parties have made their selections for their candidates. Supposedly, these four individuals are the brightest and best.

Barack Obama accused Republicans on Monday of using "false advertisements, lies and spin" to distract voters from the major issues in the election. The Democratic presidential candidate also sought to reclaim his image as a Washington outsider, saying he had upset leaders of his own party by pushing to stop favor-trading between lobbyists and lawmakers. Obama's renewed emphasis on reform comes as Republicans John McCain and Sarah Palin are casting themselves as mavericks bent on changing Washington's insular culture.

John McCain and his new running mate, Sarah Palin, spent some quality time together after Friday morning's rally in Dayton, Ohio, when they boarded McCain's bus for the six-hour ride to Pittsburgh. That's a good thing. Because McCain and Palin are practically strangers. At least that's what the Alaska governor told a reporter two weeks ago. In an interview with the Washington newspaper Roll Call, Palin said she had met McCain only once or twice. She said she was introduced to McCain at the 2006 Republican Governors Assn.

Sarah Silverman's Great Schlep video has been making the rounds among my friends. It encourages young Jews to go visit old Jews in Florida to stop them from picking John McCain and Sarah Palin over Barack Obama and Joe Biden. The message, you see, is that the younger Jews "get it" and it's old Jews who need to "get in line."

With Republican John McCain edging ahead of Democrat Barack Obama in the latest polls, the two candidates are now locked in a bitter political fight over a core issue: who can best claim the mantle of change. Obama, who founded his campaign on a pledge to reform Washington, on Friday unleashed new TV advertisements, revised his stump speech and released a strategy memo that all challenge McCain's efforts to cast himself as a maverick and reformer who can bring change. McCain vowed in a TV interview to appoint Democrats and independents to his administration if elected.
