He went west to the heartland in 1983 with a guitar and a penny whistle, a political troubadour who was 20 but looked more like 15. And when he arrived, they gave him a phone, a map and a list of names, and said, "Go win part of Iowa for our presidential campaign. "      So he dialed numbers and knocked on doors, visiting farmers and store clerks and men in suits. He talked to them, sang to them and generally charmed their socks off, and pretty soon reports began filtering back to the boss about this young guy from Maryland, Martin O'Malley.      "We heard that they just loved him out there," said Gary Hart, who was making his first run at the presidency.

Some of us had just gotten used to the fact that it is 2007 when all sorts of people started acting as if it is 2008. Polls keep coming out showing who is the front-runner among the many Democratic and Republican candidates for their party's presidential nominations. Why all this hype, this early, about front-runners? Has everyone forgotten the old saying, "In politics, overnight is a lifetime"? Some of us are old enough to remember "front-runner Edmund S. Muskie" and "front-runner Gary Hart" - not to mention "President Thomas E. Dewey."

SURELY the nation's moral water table has reached drought level when Gary Hart feels it's safe to declaim again about whether infidelity should be a factor in determining fitness for public office.Mr. Hart was a Democratic presidential candidate in 1988 who was forced from the race when reporters discovered him emerging from a house -- where he and a woman not his wife had been alone at suggestive hours and after pictures were published showing Donna Rice sitting on his lap aboard the deliciously named boat Monkey Business.

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- There is an obvious analogy between the Republican primary campaign here this year and the Democratic contest in 1984. If it is carried to the extreme -- a very big ''if'' -- we could be looking at another upset when the votes are counted February 20.At this stage 12 years ago, the Democrats had in former Vice President Walter F. Mondale an established front-runner with broad support from the party leaders much like that enjoyed today...

DENVER -- In a year when seven Democratic senators in various degrees of frustration have announced they won't seek re-election in 1996, why would former Sen. Gary Hart even think about running for the Senate again next year?Mr. Hart, heavier and grayer now than when he ran for president in 1988 but still looking like the man in the Marlboro ad, frets over ''this highly inflated story.'' Only half in jest, he says, ''When you want coverage you don't get it, and when you don't want it, you get it.''Mr.

Climaxing an absurdly self-destructive indiscretion, Sen. Gary Hart, running for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination, was photographed on a boat with the absurdly appropriate name of Monkey Business. Until the National Enquirer broke the story and the mainstream U.S. press rapidly followed, his campaign had been anything but absurd. Many of us who were writing about politics those days believed he was the smartest and the most appropriate candidate, or at least the likeliest Democrat, in the race.

"Power is the great aphrodisiac." - Henry Kissinger Was Ed Norris not paying attention? Did the name Bill Clinton not ring a bell? Or Gary Hart? Or JFK? Were there not enough cautionary examples? Not enough powerful figures brought low by sexual recklessness? Maybe someone should have told The Commish that sometimes these things get out. When they do, they have a way of ruining reputations and careers, tarnishing legacies, imperiling marriages. The good news for Norris may be that a little infidelity - well, a lot, apparently - may be the least of his troubles now. In an indictment handed down this week, Norris was charged with illegally spending about $20,000 from a police fund, allegedly including a number of expenditures on lady friends.

GOFFSTOWN, N.H. -- Nineteen years ago, then-Sen. Gary Hart of Colorado took New Hampshire by storm, upsetting Vice President Walter F. Mondale in the state's first-in-the-nation Democratic presidential primary, only to run out of money and gas later. He was back this week pondering another try, hoping for a fresh start after his subsequent rerun in 1988 was derailed by extramarital dalliances. In appearances at St. Anselm College and New England College, however, the subject never came up. In the intervening time, Mr. Hart, now in his mid-60s, has made a name for himself as a Russian expert, a writer, a scholar and most recently a man who warned America of terrorism at home well before it occurred in 2001.

WASHINGTON - Dennis J. Kucinich for president? Carol Moseley-Braun? Al Sharpton? Howard Dean and Gary Hart, for that matter? On paper, anyway, none of these five presidential hopefuls stirs visions of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, FDR or even Bill Clinton. Yet each has either jumped into the race for the 2004 Democratic nomination or is poised on the brink - this political season's versions of Gary Bauer, Steve Forbes, Alan Keyes and all the other forgettables of previous presidential years.

WASHINGTON - The snickering has started already over the decision of former Sen. Gary Hart of Colorado to join the national dialogue by exploring the possibility of another Democratic presidential nomination bid. Although the too-conspicuous womanizing that drove him from elective politics occurred in 1987, that blemish is an obvious initial detriment to Mr. Hart's being taken seriously should he enter the race, as now seems likely, several weeks from...

WASHINGTON -- Creation of the Department of Homeland Security is a vindication for former Sens. Gary Hart, Democrat of Colorado, and Warren Rudman, Republican of New Hampshire, who nine months before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks warned of the threat and called for just such a new federal agency. Mr. Hart, while expressing some satisfaction that it has now been approved, says "a year and a half has been wasted" by President Bush's failure to act sooner on their recommendation and those of Democratic Sen. Joseph Lieberman and Republican Rep. William "Mac" Thornberry.

After a last-minute invitation, Mayor Martin O'Malley is accompanying President Clinton on a two-day trip to Northern Ireland. O'Malley left last night as part of a 25-member delegation traveling with Clinton on his third and final presidential visit to the troubled country, where the president has been credited with playing a critical role in forming the 1998 peace accord. O'Malley, who leads a Celtic rock band that has produced CDs with Irish themes, met Clinton in Baltimore in July during the national convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and asked if he could be included in the trip.
