"Hart Departs" - Herald Staff - Miami Herald

". . .Mr. Hart was correct in his complaint that personal affairs should not eclipse public discussion of foreign policy, of arms control, of defense readiness, and of Federal budgets.

"Private Lives Public Business in Presidential Campaign" - Heath Meriwether - Miami Herald

". . .We conducted surveillance of Hart's capitol Hill townhouse from the public streets. We didn't hide in the bushes or peep in windows, as Hart's campaign manager has suggested.

I'm here because several weeks ago, as I and a few dozen million other Americans were fretting over how we might possible ward off another four years of George W. Bush, I decided to come to Florida and undertake a vigil for election-theft tactics from inside the Bush campaign's grass-roots ranks. . ."

"I Was an Obama Volunteer" - Mike Newall - Philadelphia City Paper

". . .I also wanted an up-close-in-action glimpse of this idea of 'empowered democracy,' the supposedly self-transformational precept pumping through the bloodlines of Obama's candidacy. (Remember, he's not just asking you to believe in his ability to bring about change, he's asking you to believe in yours.) The candidate has promised that his is a truly bottom-up campaign driven by the creative energies of volunteers rather than Washington wags. I wanted to see how Philadelphians handled their newfound empowerment. . ."

". . .When my editors put me up to this, I wanted to tackle some big questions: Would we Philadelphians truly be the "deciders" of a presidential primary? How does national politics operate on a local level? And who are these legendary Clintons, who draw both fanatical love and hate?

But by 9:30 a.m., just a week after this office opened, my desire for knowing became much simpler: Where the hell were these people? . . ."
