    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Will he take $1 tips? 

    As he often reminds supporters and the press alike, U.S. Sen. John Edwards doesn't bash his Democratic opponents. So, it was a logical question when Boston Globe reporter Raja Mishra asked if Edwards was going to do something to raise his public profile to compete with the media attention focused on U.S. Sen. John Kerry?

    "What do you mean, like take my clothes off or something?" Edwards joked after a rally at the University of Wisconsin at Waukesha late Sunday morning.

    Even when he agreed to outline specific policy differences with Kerry, the Democratic frontrunner, Edwards talked almost entirely about his own positions. He was unable to name a specific piece of legislation where the two differed in their votes.

    Edwards started the day speaking to the congregation at Community Baptist Church in Milwaukee, where parishoner Juanita Turner promised to vote for Edwards because "he came to the 'hood."
