As President Ford's chief of staff, Dick Cheney worked hard to ensure Jimmy Carter didn't oust his boss from the White House. But 24 years later, Cheney finds himself admiring Carter for how he treated his vice president, Walter F. Mondale. "I wasn't all that big a fan of Jimmy Carter's presidency, but I thought that he and Mondale arrived at an arrangement that made a lot of sense," Cheney said.

Picking up where their running mates left off, Dick Cheney and Joseph I. Lieberman sparred Thursday night over taxes, abortion and defense in a mild-mannered vice presidential debate that often muffled their differences beneath a blanket of civility. The temperate tone was set from the start of the 90-minute session, when the two nominees swore off personal attacks and Cheney interjected a rare bit of levity.

Vice presidential nominees Dick Cheney and Joseph I. Lieberman engaged Thursday in a smooth but unrelentingly low-key encounter more likely to burnish their own images than materially affect the contest for the White House. Throughout their 90-minute session, Lieberman and Cheney were both calm and collected--in many ways more so than presidential nominees Al Gore and George W. Bush appeared in their frenetic first debate Tuesday night.

Hoping to patch up an emerging fissure in the Democratic base, soon-to-be vice presidential nominee Joseph I. Lieberman arrived in Los Angeles on Tuesday and quickly moved to mend fences with black Democrats concerned about his positions on affirmative action, school vouchers and other issues.

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.

"Because I am a Catholic and no Catholic has ever been elected president, it is apparently necessary for me to state once again not what kind of church I believe in--for that should be important only to me--but what kind of America I believe in." --John F. Kennedy, 1960 "Dear Lord, maker of all miracles, I thank you for bringing me to this extraordinary moment in my life." --Joseph I.

Al Gore has whittled the list of potential running mates for the Democratic presidential ticket to just six--four senators, the party's House leader and a governor, top Gore advisors disclosed Thursday. Among the contenders is Gov. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, who had not figured prominently in the speculation, at least in public. And a Shaheen aide insisted Thursday that if asked to join the ticket, the governor would decline. The other potential running mates are Sens.

Vice President Al Gore, nearing a decision on a running mate, will unveil his choice on Aug. 8, days after presidential rival Gov. George W. Bush and the Republicans conclude their national convention in Philadelphia. Gore, whittling down his short list of potential candidates while he vacations near here with his family, will make the announcement somewhere in Tennessee at a public event whose final details have yet to be worked out.
