    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Spooky times on the campaign plane 

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Sen. John Edwards' two youngest children celebrated Halloween a bit early Saturday night - on Daddy's campaign plane, during the long flight from Bangor, Maine, to this beach town in Florida.

    Jack, 4, dressed up like a "Top Gun" fighter pilot and carried a plastic Jack-o-Lantern bucket. He made his way down the aisle of the charter plane to accept and dispense candy to the traveling press.

    Asked what his favorite treat was, he thought a minute, then commented: "Chocolate - dark and white."

    One TV network news staffer donned a monster mask, growled and surprised Jack, who admitted the sight scared him - but "just a little bit, not a lot."

    Later, the Democratic vice presidential candidate escorted his daughter, Emma Claire, 6, back to the press section. She was dressed like Mulan, the Chinese warrior princess who starred in a Disney animated movie.

    Edwards didn't dress up for Halloween, but he did pose briefly behind a cardboard witch's mask, complete with green skin and a nose wart.

    Also a hit, on the table where the food spread had been: A spooky skull and an amputated arm that moved.
