    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Monday, February 16, 2004

    There's something happening here 

    The frosty, sometimes nasty, Dean-Kerry rivalry shows signs of thawing. In fact, it may be downright melting.

    Dean, who has made Kerry the target of his attacks on the war in Iraq and on political fundraising, had plenty of opportunities to tee off on Kerry during Sunday night's debate at Marquette University in Milwaukee but he didn't rise to the bait. The pulled punches fueled speculation already stoked by Dean aides that Dean might end his candidacy after Tuesday's Wisconsin primary and back Kerry.

    "I talked to him last night on stage (during an off-air break)," Kerry said Monday morning aboard his charter plane. "We had a nice chat about the debate. He was very warm and open. We had a nice conversation."

    Warm? Open?

    As Stephen Stills wrote — "There's something happening here. What it is ain't exactly clear."
