Touché! Kerry fires back at Bush camp
Responding to a taunt by the White House that he ``looks French,'' U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday brushed off the political insult - saying it's part of an expected barrage of Republican attacks on his character.

Wife's jet gives Kerry great lift along trail: Candidate reimburses fares
WASHINGTON - White House hopeful Sen. John F. Kerry hitched a ride for 20 flights aboard his wife Teresa Heinz's corporate jet on the presidential campaign trail this year.
Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign committee wrote checks totaling $39,781 for use of the jet during the first three months of 2003, according to a Herald review of the federal campaign report the senator filed this week.

On Iowa stump, Kerry revels in Kennedy ties
WASHINGTON - Introducing himself to a crowd of Democrats gathered in an Iowa home recently, Sen. John F. Kerry joked he comes from Massachusetts, an Indian name meaning ``Land of many Kennedys.''
During his three-day campaign swing last week, the presidential hopeful did not shy away from references to the famous clan that produced the last Bay State Democrat to occupy the Oval Office.
In fact, Kerry embraced their liberal legacy and cast himself in the tradition of former presidents from John Adams to Franklin Roosevelt, while also playing up his own dramatic life story.
Kerry rips Bush for `breaking' campaign promises
DES MOINES, Iowa - Sen. John F. Kerry charged President Bush yesterday with breaking ``almost every promise'' he made during the 2000 presidential campaign.
Speaking to a group of Democratic women leaders at a breakfast here, the presidential hopeful slammed Bush for going back on his word on several pledges he made as a candidate.
``He broke the promise about not raiding Social Security, he broke the promise about being able to afford the tax cut without going into deficit, he broke the promise about giving us prescription drugs, he broke the promise about balancing the budget,'' Kerry said.
``The one promise he's kept is cutting the taxes, to the exclusion of everything else,'' he added.
War clouds hang over Kerry campaign stop in Iowa
CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA - Sen. John F. Kerry wanted to talk education as he visited an elementary school on the campaign trail yesterday - but media questions about the war pulled him away.
After a tour of Johnson School of the Arts here, the presidential hopeful said the voters he is courting want him to keep talking about education, the economy and health care despite the war.
``This is a democracy here in the United States and we have an election, folks,'' he told reporters. ``You could be at war a year from now. Are we going to put the election on hold? Of course not. . . . Let's not have a lot of phony arguments here about what we can and can't talk about.''
