    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Saturday, October 30, 2004

    Least-anticipated trip to Hawaii. Ever. 

    Those anguished cries you heard the other night? Those were reporters on other campaign planes convulsed with professional jealousy upon hearing news that Vice President Cheney would campaign in Hawaii.

    Cell phones and Blackberries of Cheney reporters immediately started ringing.

    "You (expletive deleted) are going to Hawaii?" was the typical incredulous question.

    Yes. But that's not a good thing. Really.

    The Hawaii trip comes at the end of a five-rally day in five states. Air Force Two will take off from Albuquerque at 6:20 p.m. for the 7-hour flight to Honolulu.

    Cheney goes to the rally, gives a speech, turns around and gets back on the plane for a flight to Colorado Springs - where he goes to a rally.

    Yes, we (expletive deleted) are going to Hawaii. Party on.

    - Matt Stearns, Kansas City Star
