    WASHINGTON (AFP) – In an open letter to his young daughters, US president-elect Barack Obama said Thursday that he entered the race for the White House "because of what I want for you and for every child in this nation." "When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me -- about how I'd make my way in the world, become successful, and get the things I want. But then the two of you came into my world," Obama said in the letter published in Parade magazine, a weekend newspaper color supplement. "I realized that my own...

    Bill Clinton's speech last night reminded us why Democrats love him and Republicans hate him. I wonder how many Clinton haters needed smelling salts, besides Andrew Sullivan, after William Jefferson Clinton got through with his speech last night. It’s certain the right-wing smear merchants that have tried so hard for so long to keep him down didn’t know what to do. Because when he showed up on the Pepsi Center stage, what he delivered what had to come as quite a shock.

    Spain's main fashion show is to turn away models if they are too thin, striking a blow for fuller-figured women.

The move is part of a voluntary agreement with the Madrid regional government, said designer Jesus del Pozo. The association said it wanted models to project "an image of beauty and health" and shun a gaunt, emaciated look at the show, which begins on Sep 18....

    America's top cop has been demonized and lionized. He's a complex guy all right, just not the guy everyone thinks he is The small Cessna Citation was just over Grand Rapids, Mich., when the secure phone rang. Attorney General John Ashcroft listened intently, interrupting the caller repeatedly. After hanging up, he turned to his small staff. "The world," he said, "has changed forever." The change wreaked by the September 11 terrorist attacks was greater for Ashcroft than for any other member of President Bush's cabinet. Donald Rumsfeld would have to torque the Pentagon bureaucracy in radically different ways to fight...
