WASHINGTON - With the presidential debates over, most polls have indicated the viewers' opinion that Sen. John Kerry was the clear winner, with President Bush, after an erratic start in the first debate, somewhat repairing the damage in the last one. But a comment Mr. Kerry made about Mary Cheney, the vice president's daughter, in the closing minutes of the third debate has left a lingering question as to why he made it and what may be the political ramifications....

Five words you will never hear from me again in life: I agree with James Dobson. Mr. Dobson is the founder of Focus on the Family, a conservative activist group, and ordinarily I couldn't see eye to eye with him on the day of the week. But I agree with him about Mary Cheney. He wrote about the vice president's pregnant, lesbian daughter in a Time magazine essay in December. Here's part of what he said: "With all due respect to Cheney and her partner, Heather Poe, the majority of more than 30 years of social-science evidence indicates that children do best on every measure of well-being when raised by their married mother and father.

POLITICAL CALCULATIONS behind the post-debate flap over Democratic references to Vice President Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter are not hard to decipher. What's intriguing is how they play off this particular moment in American society's transition to broad acceptance of gay relationships. That both John Kerry and John Edwards made a point during their respective debates of referring to Mary Cheney's sexual orientation seemed at a minimum calculated to highlight the hypocrisy of Bush administration support for a constitutional ban on gay marriage.

WASHINGTON -- No Republican in Washington is more beloved by social conservatives than Vice President Dick Cheney, who with his wife, Lynne, has backed and breathed every issue dear to them for six tumultuous years. News that Cheney's lesbian daughter, Mary, is pregnant touched a raw nerve, as advocates for conservative family values struggle to reconcile their loyalty to the Cheneys with their opposition to same-sex relationships - and particularly to raising a child without a father.

BOSTON -- Let me see if I have this right. The Republicans are now accusing the Democrats of being insensitive to gay Americans? Or to one gay American, at least? After John Kerry mentioned Mary Cheney in the third debate, talk-radio hosts finally found a lesbian they wanted to protect. Even the homophobic wing of cable TV rallied to the support of a family with a gay offspring. Meanwhile, Dick Cheney described himself as "a pretty angry father." And Lynne Cheney said of the senator: "This is not a good man."

Kerry's remarks offered no insult to Mary Cheney The faux outrage on the part of Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, over remarks by Sen. John Kerry during Wednesday's presidential debate may set the record for hypocrisy ("Gay activists see uproar after debate as positive," Oct. 16). In answering a question posed to him, Sen. John Kerry correctly pointed out that homosexuality is not a choice, that Mary Cheney (the vice president's daughter ) "is being who she was born as."

WE HAVE Alan Keyes, the Marylander running on the Republican ticket for the U.S. Senate in Illinois, for this week's lesson in what happens when erudite people are asked stupid questions. We also have Keyes to thank for another question: How stupid are Illinois Republicans? The first order of business is to deal with the stupid question a radio show host put to Keyes this week after he called homosexuality "selfish hedonism." The questioner asked if Vice President Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter, Mary Cheney, was a selfish hedonist.

WASHINGTON - It's been a quarter-century since the Cheney family, dog included, piled into an RV and traveled around Wyoming, going from rodeo to small-town parade in that summer of 1978 to urge voters to elect Dick Cheney to the U.S. House of Representatives. Today, the family is out in full force again, with the vice president's two grown daughters putting aside their careers to devote themselves to their father's political success - Elizabeth Cheney, 37, traveling the country giving speeches for the Bush-Cheney re-election team; Mary Cheney, 35, overseeing her father's vice presidential run. With political instincts honed over three decades of watching their father navigate the currents of power, the two women have emerged as two of his closest advisers and confidantes, trusted allies fiercely devoted to him and the Bush agenda.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- As President Bush and his campaign team rev up their campaign for a race to the finish, they hope to revive the image of the likable, ordinary-guy president whose calm leadership soothed the country after the Sept. 11 attacks before he went to war in Afghanistan and Iraq. At the same time, the president plans to intensify his criticism of John Kerry, continuing to portray the Democratic candidate as a "Massachusetts liberal" whose views put him outside the mainstream.
