They say teach your children well. And so the father schooled his daughters: Be your own person. Pursue your passion. Don't stand in someone else's shadow. The two girls learned. They grew into women and, by all accounts, they thrived. But just as they seemed poised to blossom in their own careers, something happened. The teacher, himself, cast the shadow. And it was wide.

Chat with Californians attending the Democratic National Convention and repeatedly you will hear one word: visceral. Delegates unsolicited will tell you of their visceral dislike of President Bush. Some even will call it hate. Sen. John F. Kerry and his strategists may have ordered up a menu of positive convention speeches, keeping a lid on anti-Bush attacks, but Californians won't hesitate to convey their own hostility in casual conversations and interviews.

Massachusetts Sen. John F. Kerry said Monday that the Democrats have President Bush "on the run," insisting that the incumbent is so anxious about his prospects that he is starting his reelection campaign before his opponent has even been selected.

Sen. John F. Kerry said Tuesday that he would not unseal his divorce records as he campaigns for the presidency. "I have no intention of doing that at all," Kerry said in response to a reporter's question. "There's no reason whatsoever. It's history, ancient history." Kerry and Julia Thorne were married in 1970 but separated in 1982. They were divorced in 1988.

It was a social event more than a political one, with lots of cocktails. The stylish crowd gathered at a Hancock Park home in early November was thirtysomething, mostly Democratic and largely undecided. For many, the candidate was barely a blip on their political radar. A handsome but unassuming young man took the floor. He wore a hooded gray Army sweatshirt, jeans and scuffed sneakers. He had the sheepish hunch of a guy who would rather be doing anything than this. Until he started talking.

John Fortney, anchor of the Ohio News Network cable channel, stood outside a hotel ballroom here Tuesday to interview delegates, elected officials and even Democratic Party Chairman Terry McAuliffe. He had little trouble getting noticed. Few Democrats here, if any, would turn down a chance to go on TV in such a pivotal state. In fact, they seek it out. "With 20 electoral votes on the line, people like to come to us," Fortney said.

Jenna and Barbara Bush celebrate their college graduations this weekend in private dinners with their famous parents, but the festivities mark more than academic achievement. For the last four years, President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush have zealously shielded their only children from the public spotlight. "Our girls are not public figures," Laura Bush once said. "They're the children of a president."

It had been nearly 20 years since the war, so the helicopter that swept down on the village held no menace. Indeed, the children were so curious that they swarmed around the big chopper. And when the tall American with the deeply lined face emerged from inside, they clamored to get closer. "Hello, hello.
