The nation's top Catholic bishops will convene this week in Baltimore to choose a new leader, a decision that will help set the course for an American church striving to build its appeal while grappling with stances on immigration and contraception coverage. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops expects close to 300 active and retired members as it holds its annual convention at the Waterfront Marriott Hotel. Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York is to begin the four-day gathering Monday with his final address as president after serving a three-year term.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - After 18 months of uncertainty and political drama, Argentina bore witness to something refreshing yesterday - an elected president, taking the oath of office amid great pomp and ceremony before an assembly of international leaders. Unlike the four men who preceded him, Nestor Kirchner did not become president in the middle of the night, or as part of a national emergency, or with chunks of this cosmopolitan city occupied by riot police. "Our past is full of failures, pain, confrontations, [and]

It is a breakthrough. All indications are that on Jan. 14, an elected president will succeed an elected president for the first time in Guatemala's history. That is more important than the not-very-inspiring choice that will be put to voters in a run-off on Jan. 6 of the 12-way first round election for president held on Sunday.The top two are Jorge Carpio Nicolle, a newspaper publisher who has been campaigning nonstop since he came in second in the 1985 election, and Jorge Serrano Elias, an economist who served a dictator.

The two leading Democrats for the 2008 presidential nomination are, according to recent polls, Sens. Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois. This month the latter received a very warm reception in his first visit to New Hampshire, where presidential primaries begin, and he said he thought his new-found popularity showed the nation was "looking for something different - we want something new." The next day Clinton said she was talking to people about her plans, and said she would decide whether to seek the presidential nomination next month.

Two recent letters to the editor caught my attention. One was the contention of a writer who thought that the reason so many "front line" journalists are left-leaning is because they live in close touch with "the real world" ("The GOP lost because it's out of touch with the reality facing a majority of Americans today," Nov. 28). I would refer him to the book "The Amateur" by Edward Klein, a former editor at the New York Times, and to a commentary in the Washington Post by Matt Patterson in which he states that "years from now historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon.

President Barack Obama is now openly preaching the radical egalitarianism of John Rawls. Sneering at us Americans because we don't and can't produce the circumstances of our own births which is, of course, impossible. Mr. Obama arrogantly asserts that none of us deserve any credit for any distinctions any of us have ever achieved ourselves, whether those distinctions are vocational, familial, sporting, academic, and so on. He arrogantly demands that we believe him over the evidence of our own senses and that we submit to him as faceless, mindless cogs in wheels that he and a few of his own people will push around at their whims.

Mohamed Morsi, the first freely elected president in Egypt's history, is soon to take office under circumstances that are far from ideal. While Egypt's ruling military has conceded his victory over its preferred candidate in the presidential runoff election, Ahmed Shafiq, the generals who have been running the country show no sign of being ready to give up power. Last week they issued a decree stripping the president's office of its authority over the budget, national security and most domestic matters.

I'VE BEEN mulling over what Sen. Bob Dole said about there never having been a president named Bob. I think introducing a new name to the White House is a good idea.Senator Dole also could have said there never has been a president from Kansas. (Dwight Eisenhower grew up there, but he was born in Texas and prepped for high office in Washington, London and Paris.)So after much thought and prayer I have decided to make an early presidential endorsement in favor of that Kansas senator with a given name never before held by a president: Nancy Kassebaum.

BILL CLINTON is the first lawyer-president since Ford. Bushand Carter were businessmen and Reagan was an actor.Nixon was a lawyer, but prior to him you have to go back to FDR to find a lawyer-president. Johnson was a teacher turned bureaucrat, Kennedy a journalist, Ike a general, Truman a farmer turned haberdasher turned government official. So only three of the last 10 presidents were lawyers.This is unusual, since 24 of the first 31 presidents (through FDR) were lawyers.Of course, in a real sense it is wrong to call Bill Clinton a lawyer-president.

After Sen. Barack Obama won the Jan. 3 Democratic caucuses in white-as-snow Iowa, he and his campaign wasted no time trying to put one idea to rest: that white voters would never accept the candidate because of his race. But some African-Americans remain unconvinced, and their doubts could undermine Obama's presidential campaign, a possibility that grew after his defeat in the New Hampshire primary. Don't get black voters wrong - they say he is their pride, their cause for excitement and hope that the future will hold more acceptance and better times.
