ckennedy_bheadSure, the videos show people out in the sun shouting and waving signs. Sure, the speeches touch on prices and jobs and fairness and the future and the American people.  But a kind of insider convention also is taking place  --  one that comes right off the floor of the U.S. Senate. After all, Barack Obama, a U.S. senator  --  after defeating Hillary Clinton, another U.S. senator, in the primaries  --  picked Joseph Biden, another U.S. senator, as his running mate, in the race against John McCain, yet another U.S.  So the top players in this supercharged election are not just inside-the-Beltway, but under-the-Capitol-dome.  Sen.  Meet Barack Obama's choice for his Vice Presidential candidate.  Previous", "Next"],  //labels for "prev" and "next" links.  Your faces. Your cameras. Your life.

M_IMAGE.11beb4b9125.93.88.fa.d0.e32c30dJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?  Democrat Barack Obama offers "new hope" for America and would make an "extraordinary president", his wife and party leaders said.Michelle Obama used stories from her personal life to emphasise her husband's American values and that he understood what the United States needs - despite his exotic-sounding name.US Senator Edward Kennedy, the sole surviving son of America's most celebrated political dynasty, said the 47-year-old Illinois senator offered "new hope" and that America would "scale the heights" again under Mr Obama's leadership.Liberal heavyweight Mr Kennedy, who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour in May, said "nothing, nothing" was going to keep him away from the convention.But the opening night of the Democratic National Convention lacked any serious criticism of President George Bush or Mr Obama's Republican rival John McCain. Instead, it was a relatively soft introduction to Mr Obama, his life, his values, and t...

160_ap_michelle_080825The Elephant is a blog that takes Trudeau's quote to heart. What happens in Washington still creates ripples, or waves, north of the 49th parallel.  DENVER - So the word in Denver is that Bill Clinton is in a funk (when isn't he, lately?) about having to deliver his BIG SPEECH to Democrats on Wednesday night, when the BIG THEME of the evening is national security and how Barack Obama will keep America safe from the bad men of the world.  Apparently Bubba's ticked because, well, he won't be able to talk about how himself, and how the American economy prospered thanks his stewardship for eight years.  But Bill could have it worse - he could be Jimmy Carter.  The 83-year-old former president is one of - count 'em - two living former Democratic presidents ... and yet Carter didn't even warrant a prime time speaking slot at the party's national convention.  Instead Carter was featured only in a three-minute video about the humanitarian works he's done in New Orleans sinc...

2497506070_f03cc04d61The X-Files': That '90s Show.  Who didn't love "The X-Files," especially in the excitement of its early seasons? Each show was put together like a little movie, with witchy scripts, brooding photography, Scully and Mulder rootling around in the foggy woods.  I was thinking about this while watching the new "X-Files" movie, which, I'm afraid, offers little else of its own to think about. Die-hard fans of the old series may be puzzled to find that the film (subtitled "I Want to Believe" ) is very light in the "X" department. There are no new mutations of the show's esoteric "mythology," and no monster-of-the-week cheap thrills, either. There's a modest dollop of paranormal activity — a psychic, big deal — and even that is presented as rather iffy.  The movie opens in snowy West Virginia (snowy British Columbia, actually — why didn't they just set the story in Seattle or something?). A woman is attacked in her home by two scary men and dragged off into the night. Come day...

christmas_buttheadHow's a girl to score with a hot guy? According to exiled Playboy Bunny Shelley Darlingson (Anna Faris), the secret is ocular contact.  Shelley was banished from the Playboy Mansion the morning after her fabulous 27th-birthday party, which also turned out to be the cutoff point for aging Bunnies. Now, following a series of bumbling adventures on perilously high pink platform sandals, she has wound up as the house mother at a college sorority. Unfortunately, it's Zeta House, home of the most pathetic sisters on campus. Zeta's membership is minimal, and the handful of girls in residence are all losers: one's a male-loathing Goth, one has a full-body spinal brace, another is pregnant. The snooty bitches at the nearby Phi Iota Mu house (led by hissable Sarah Wright) have targeted them for termination, and indeed, the Zetas are about to lose their charter and be turned out of their beloved home. Can Shelley transform these rejects into varsity vixens?  The House Bunny" is an unabashedly for...

poar02_michelle_obama0712JsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?  Former Democratic Virginia Governor Mark Warner, Barack Obama (L) and Rep.  WASHINGTON (AFP) — Barack Obama's campaign announced Wednesday that former Virginia governor Mark Warner will be the "keynote" speaker on the same night that Hillary Clinton is due to address the Democratic convention.The White House contender's aides said Warner, who is running for the US Senate, would speak at the Denver convention on Tuesday, August 26 on the night's theme of "renewing America's promise."Clinton is also billed to give a prime-time speech that Tuesday, as the camps of the former rivals vie to put on a show of unity following their bitter fight for the Democratic nomination.Billing Warner as the keynote speaker might be seen as a snub to the former first lady, but that role has often been a springboard to national prominence for up-and-coming politicians.Obama himself catapulted to fame with a barnstorming keynote speech at the 2004 ...
