Bill Clinton campaigned onstage for Gray Davis in Los Angeles Thursday. He gave the charisma-challenged governor a real lesson. No one's seen anything like it since Peter Lawford sang Learn to Be a Ladies' Man to Mel Torme in the campus comedy Good News.
Israel's Parliament voted Wednesday to continue construction on the security wall in the West Bank. How fed up are they with terrorism? To keep from being shot on sight, Yasser Arafat walks around the neighborhood disguised as Adolf Hitler.
