A-2—SUNDAY, JAN. 30, 2000 THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL AFTERNOON BRIEFING ;A quick read of the world Associated Press locked in battle with McCain, >Bush brings parents into campaign v< MANCHESTER, N.H. — Republican George W. Bush, who would i$e president, campaigned for the first time Saturday alongside his ^rather, who once was, as the field of White House hopefuls plowed •{toward this week's leadoff New Hampshire primary. Bill Bradley Charged Al Gore was trying to "dance around" earlier qualms about ,abortion as he bid to cut into the vice president's core Democratic support. ^ With the polls pointing to a tight finish, at least on the Republican £jade, Sen. John McCain mocked Bush's endgame strategy as "quick, *get me another endorsement" from the GOP establishment. People lin- *ing up behind the front-runner now are "the same ones running our jfiarty in 1996 and 1998, when we lost elections," said the Arizona sen- ,ator, who has come from far back in the pack to within striking distance ^Jf victory in the state. ** Gore, who has moved past Bradley in recent polls, sought to blunt yiis rival's attack on his position on abortion and his credibility. Asked *tthether he would call abortion "arguably the taking of human life," as *fie wrote to a constituent in 1987, the vice president said, "I would not •Ose that phrasing today." *» He quickly added, though, that "on the narrow question, I've always «$ipported Roe v. Wade. I've always supported keeping abortion legal." ;> Steve Forbes, who finished a strong second in last week's Iowa cau- *<Juses, Alan Keyes and Gary Bauer all made their rounds on the campaign's final weekend, hoping for surprises in Tuesday's vote that ;would catapult them into the thick of the GOP race. Forbes released .new radio commercials attacking Bush for failing to be a.firm enough ;foe of abortion, and for overseeing a big increase in spending in Texas. :Dreams come and go with Tuesday's vote T; EXETER, N.H. —With 800 people packed into a school gymnasi- <um to hear him speak, and a handful more braving subfreezing weath- • 0r to shake his hand, John McCain soaked up the scene and said: "This 1is the highlight of my political life." v These are dreamy days for the men who want to be president. But "there is anxiety, too. For some, the verdict of the notoriously fickle •-New Hampshire voters will spell the end of their candidacies — or sig- I nal the beginning of the end. £ McCain's outcome is critical. Unlike national front-runner George ~W. Bush, McCain cannot afford to lose Tuesday's primary. £ If Bush puts McCain away in New Hampshire, the Arizona senator ^rhay look back at Friday's jam-packed town hall meeting and realize, :sadly, that it was indeed the highlight. ~ "The stakes are highest for McCain," said state GOP chairman . Steve Duprey. "But every candidate has something to accomplish ; before leaving New Hampshire." : . The front-runners must avoid lengthy nomination fights. The top '.challengers must strike quickly. The also-rans must catapult them• selves into the first tier. ' Steve Forbes, the millionaire conservative paying for his own campaign, finished a solid second in Iowa's caucuses, where McCain did inot compete. After billing New Hampshire as a three-way race, Forbes ^ needs to finish second or a close third for a decent return on his steep investment. The topic clearly was on Gore's mind as he answered reporters' questions about his own congressional record while strolling through Milford's snowy town square. Clinton delivers sober lecture on perils of ignoring world's underdogs DAVOS, Switzerland — Reviving his global trade pitch, President Clinton lectured world leaders Saturday on the perils of excluding workers and poorer nations from a share of the wealth open markets can bring. "Don't leave the little guys out," he said. Before an audience of other presidents, prime ministers, politicians and 1,000 business leaders, Clinton gave a bullish endorsement of unfettered global trade and investment — as long as it recognizes concerns about workplace safety and a clean environment. But he also cautioned developing nations against relying solely on trade agreements to build their economies, saying their leaders have a responsibility to run their governments with openness and accountability. "There is a limit to what wealthy nations can do for people who will not take the necessary steps," he said. The Davos meeting is the first convening of world economic leaders since the near collapse of the World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle two months ago. rv GTE WIRELESS FAMILYNET SHARE PLAN; ^ & »***," PET OF THE WEEK Herman Migdilenofltie Ukiih Dtlly Journal-* This Bernese mountain dog is up for adoption at the" county pound.

"I strongly support a : woman's right to choose and if (Bradley) disputes that, then he is mak- ;; ing a mistake." •• Bradley began airing a new television ad in the state Saturday in S which the former New Jersey senator calls himself the only presiden- .; tial candidate who "has been pro-choice for everyone all the time." ! Campaigning in Manchester, Bradley said, "I was pro-choice from • the day I entered politics.... It's not an issue you can dance around." Guess Who's 65?! Happy Birthday Bergle!
