Wed, 03 Sep 2008 14:34:39 GMT2008-09-03T14:34:39Z

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Dan Quayle struck a nerve in 1992 when he went after the TV series "Murphy Brown" by saying its depiction of a single mother was irresponsible and set a bad example for America. The Republican vice president said the fictional character was "mocking the importance of fathers by bearing a child alone and calling it just another `lifestyle choice.'"...

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- An Irish Catholic guy from a coal town who rides Amtrak home from work each night. A "hockey mom" of five who served on the PTA. A 72-year-old Vietnam vet. A biracial kid with a stepfather and a history of moving around....

Fri, 29 Aug 2008 08:27:00 GMT2008-08-29T08:27:00Z

DENVER (AP) -- The rooms of the modern American household have always crept into campaigns. Politics makes strange bedfellows, for one. The living-room war ended Lyndon Johnson's political career. And everyone keeps saying the economy's headed for the toilet....

Fri, 29 Aug 2008 02:39:06 GMT2008-08-29T02:39:06Z
