    PATRICK KENNEDY Witness saw "glazed eyes." PORTSMOUTH, R.I. - Two weeks before he crashed his Mustang into a security barrier, a glossy-eyed Patrick Kennedy drove against traffic and collided with another car in a RI drugstore parking lot. "He was swaying and his eyes were glazed," Sheila Lash, 75, of Newport, told the Boston Gobe. "Then he said the most unlikely thing: 'I'm so sorry for the fuss.' " .....he had the earlier accident on April 15 while driving his Crown Victoria close to his house in Portsmouth. Lash - said she first noticed Kennedy when he zoomed out of...

    Opinion: The Five Dumbest Things on Wall Street This Week 4. Penny Ante The New York Times Co. (NYT:NYSE - commentary - research - Cramer's Take) is feeling the pinch of aggrieved shareholders. Big investors took a shot across management's bow this week by withholding 28% of votes from the company's board slate. A 5.6% holder, Morgan Stanley Investment Management, wants to eliminate the Class B stock that gives the Sulzberger family control of the board despite its tiny financial stake. "MSIM believes that the dual-class voting at The New York Times Company, which is an exception to the general...

    Ever since they lost the 2004 elections, Democrats have been falling all over themselves to proclaim their personal religious faith to an electorate that obviously cares about such things. So now the party that once ridiculed politicians who cite their personal values is trying to show that it can out-Jesus the GOP. They've been none too subtle about it - particularly New York's own Sen. Hillary Clinton. These days, she sounds more like she's running for dean of the local theological seminary than for president of the USA - er, that is, for re-election to the Senate. Hillary's latest tack...

    The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is an institution. Now in its 32nd. year, CPAC is the largest annual gathering of grassroots activists on the right. But, when it comes to co-sponsors, CPAC, and its parent group -- the American Conservative Union -- are keeping strange company. CPAC always has a lustrous line-up of speakers. Ann Coulter, Oliver North, George Will, Senator Rick Santorum and Vice President Dick Cheney all addressed this year's conference. For the most part, panel discussions and workshops are informative. Increasingly, CPAC is becoming a youth conference - demonstrating the movement's vitality. Of the 3,500 or...

    When hundreds of Los Angeles high school students told administrators they planned to walk out of school to attend last week's protest by the liberal "World Can't Wait" group calling for President Bush's impeachment — the L.A. school district decided not to discipline them. Instead, the district provided school buses and a staff escort to transport some 800 students from 10 schools to the rally and back. School officials said students would attend the protest with or without their permission, and the district's chief operating officer told KNBC, "Our issue...was safety, and I think we fulfilled our mission." — FOX...

    Billionaire financier George Soros hosted a fundraiser for Senate Democrats last week at his Manhattan home, making his first foray into politics after spending $25 million of his money in an effort to defeat President Bush last year. Soros gathered about 60 of his friends and acquaintances in his Upper East Side home Thursday to hear a presentation from Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, according to a knowledgeable source. The event raised an estimated $250,000 for Senate Democratic candidates. The hot topics of conversation among the assembled guests were the war in Iraq and...

    A year ago, the liberal group America Coming Together was on the cutting edge of national politics, spending tens of millions of dollars on a massive voter-mobilization project in every presidential battleground state. The dream was that ACT -- heavily funded by billionaire George Soros -- would play a decisive role in getting Democratic nominee John F. Kerry elected president and then remain in business as a permanent force in liberal politics. Steve Rosenthal, who launched America Coming Together to mobilize voters for Democrat John F. Kerry, said maintaining momentum after the election proved to be harder than expected. Billionaire...

    Ray Reggie, a businessman and Democratic operative with close ties to prominent politicians ranging from former President Clinton and U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy to former New Orleans Mayor Marc Morial, was charged by federal prosecutors Wednesday with attempting to defraud three banks of millions of dollars. Reggie, 43, known for his web of political contacts at all levels of government, is a member of one of Louisiana's pre-eminent political families, and until 2002 ran one of the largest advertising-placement firms in the state. That company, Media Direct LLC, is at the heart of the charges filed Wednesday in parallel bills...

The Observer has learned that CBS News and Dan Rather made use of Jonathan (Jack) Idema, a former Green Beret, mercenary and rogue soldier, who was tried and sentenced on Sept. 15 to 10 years in an Afghan prison for operating a private jail and torturing civilians he claimed were Al Qaeda operatives. Mr. Idema is now accusing CBS News of abandoning him after having what appears to have been an ad hoc...

    In an effort to galvanize the message Kerry wants to deliver in the time remaining, he convened a powerful roster of journalists and columnists in the New York City apartment of Al Franken last Thursday. The gathering could not properly be called a meeting or a luncheon. It was a trial. The journalists served as prosecuting attorneys, jury and judge. The crowd I joined in Franken’s living room was comprised of: Al Franken and his wife Franni; Rick Hertzberg, senior editor for the New Yorker; David Remnick, editor for the New Yorker; Jim Kelly, managing editor for Time Magazine; Howard...

    George Soros is an exacting  taskmaster. In return for his money, he demands productivity. What he requires of employees and business associates in the investment world, Soros also demands from the political operatives he funds. “Mr. Soros isn't just writing checks and watching,” notes Wall Street Journalreporter Jeanne Cummings. “He is also imposing a business model on the notoriously unruly world of politics. He demands objective evidence of progress, and assigned an aide to monitor the groups he supports. He studies private polls to track the impact of an anti-Bush advertising campaign, and he is delivering his money in installments,...
