While they're not exactly buddies, President-elect Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain came together Monday to discuss the future of the country -- and maybe even try to quell some of the tension from the campaign trail.
Anti-Vietnam War activist William Ayers spoke out for the first time Friday, calling the Republican effort to tie him to President-elect Barack Obama during the election campaign a "dishonest narrative" with the intent of "demonizing" Ayers.

Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has been criticizing Democratic standard-bearer Barack Obama for "palling around with terrorists," citing Obama's past associations with Bill Ayers, a founder of the radical Weather Underground, which was involved in several bombings in the early 1970s.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Friday said Sen. Barack Obama put "ambition above country" after a newspaper reported that Obama may have tried to influence Iraqi politicians negotiating with the United States.

In 1840, a young Whig organizer named Abraham Lincoln wrote the guidebook on political field work. His "confidential" circular advised Whig campaign operatives to "make a perfect list of all the voters and ascertain with certainty for whom they will vote."
