    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Game 6 

    It had to be painful for Sen. John Kerry, stuck on a plane late Tuesday night en route from Dayton, Ohio, to Waterloo, Iowa, as the Boston Red Sox were in the process of forcing a seventh game in their American League championship series with the New York Yankees.

    At one point, Kerry, wearing his lucky mustard-colored barn jacket, stepped a few feet into the press section and said he was getting regular updates about the game from the cockpit. "4-0, top of the fifth," he said.

    Crossing his fingers, Kerry said, "Listen, if they go to Game 7, history." No team, until the Sox, had pushed a championship series to a seventh game after starting off three games in the hole.

    Bloomberg News correspondent Richard Keil, a lifelong Red Sox fan, suggested that the schedule would have to be juggled in order to go to New York for the decisive game. Kerry winced, as if he wished he could take a break from his own down-to-the-wire contest.

    "Keep your eyes on the prize," Kerry said. "They do that; I'll do this."
