WASHINGTON -- When Promise Keepers fills the National Mall with people and prayers today, it hopes to make history. Certainly, it's got the setup to do so.Just look at what the Christian men's group has assembled for its first national rally: 44 guest speakers, 11 JumboTrons (the group wanted a few extras, but the Rolling Stones had first dibs), 100-plus sound speakers, 24 generators (with hushed motors to preserve a prayerful ambience on the Mall), 210 phone lines, 130 stage lights, 1 million free Bibles, 1,500 portable toilets and much more.

President Clinton? Maybe, if Democratic voters have their way. While the Republican faithful are split between a number of contenders and not particularly enthusiastic about any of them, a new poll finds Democrats overwhelmingly united behind a Hillary Clinton candidacy for 2016. A commanding 82 percent of the party, according to the CBS News/New York Times poll, wants to see her run. It is, of course, way too early to be taking polls seriously. But perhaps an observer can nevertheless be forgiven for being heartened at the prospect of a Clinton campaign, much less a Clinton victory.

WASHINGTON -- In the seven years since Promise Keepers was founded, the mass gatherings of evangelical Christian men have been criticized by some for having an almost entirely white, middle-class attendance, with just a smattering of minority participation.Acknowledging past failures, Promise Keepers founder Bill McCartney said yesterday that an Oct. 4 gathering on the Mall in Washington, which is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of men from across country, will be notable for its diversity.

President George Washington issued orders in his will that his slaves be freed after his death; President Thomas Jefferson did not. Twelve presidents owned slaves. President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, effective Jan. 1, 1863, which freed very few slaves because it affected only those held in rebellious states - and those states ignored it. Those in states loyal to the Union could keep their slaves, and slavery was ended only by the passage of the 13th Amendment.
