Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack told Democratic leaders Friday that he may seek the party's top job as the jockeying to replace Chairman Terry McAuliffe intensified. Vilsack, an ally of presidential nominee John F.

The Democratic Party decided Saturday to allow states to hold their presidential nominating contests more than a month earlier in 2004 than they did in 2000, to follow the Republicans' front-loaded schedule.

Terry McAuliffe is known for being loyal. As Hillary Rodham Clinton's longtime friend and campaign manager, he battled on her behalf until the bitter end of her quest for the Democratic presidential nomination. So the former Democratic Party chairman made waves this week when he told a crowd of Virginia Democrats the politician he thought Barack Obama should choose as his vice presidential running mate. It wasn't Clinton -- a possible clue that the senator from New York had been bumped from Obama's list of potential VPs.

Three years ago today, she was in the most mundane of places, a supermarket parking lot in Tucson. She was engaged in the most meaningful act in political life, talking to the people who had sent her to Washington. Then a bullet pierced Gabrielle Giffords' brain. The Arizona congresswoman was one of 19 who fell to bullets that day. Six would die. Wednesday, she planned to jump from an airplane with a skydiving friend, another leap in her defiant reach for a life that came so close to ending.

When Southern California businessman Ray Jinnah surfaced after more than a year as a fugitive to face charges of arranging illegal campaign contributions, he appeared weak and lost, collapsing during a brief federal court hearing last month. His transformation was stunning to those who knew him in 2000, when Jinnah brashly, if briefly, marketed himself as a political player with clout to arrange access to the Democratic Party's elite.

Prominent Democrats stepped gingerly Tuesday around former Vice President Al Gore's criticism of President Bush's policy on Iraq. Gore's vice presidential running mate of two years ago, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.), said he did not agree that action against Iraq could detract from the overall fight against terrorism. "I respectfully disagree with that part of it," he said. "I am confident the American military can do, and will do, both at once." Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.

Ralph Nader is back on Florida's ballot -- probably for good this time. The Florida Supreme Court ruled 6 to 1 Friday that he could run as the Reform Party presidential candidate in the November election. The decision met today's deadline for mailing 25,000 ballots to overseas voters, most of them military personnel, and ended a dizzying two weeks during which Nader was on and off the ballot.
