    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Back to the 'liquid' diet 

    Soggy sandwiches may be back in Dick Gephardt's future.

    While campaigning in Iowa, the Missouri congressman used to joke with his press corps about the quality of campaign food.

    After endorsing former rival John Kerry in Detroit Friday, Gephardt said "one thing I don't miss are the liquid, squishy turkey sandwiches" - a three-a-day staple of life for reporters, staff and candidate alike on the Gephardt trail.

    Gephardt has been enjoying a warm-weather Florida vacation with wife Jane since ending his presidential bid after the Iowa caucuses, saying he was converting voters in Republican-heavy Naples, Florida: "I'm getting 'em one at a time."

    But play time sounds over - and the trail again beckons.

    "Dick, you may think that you and Jane earned yourselves a vacation, but we've got a lot of work for you to do and you're gonna spend a long period of time with us," Kerry said.
