Robert Shrum sealed his reputation as a lyrical speechwriter 22 years ago, when he drafted the words with which Sen. Edward M. Kennedy relinquished his presidential aspirations: "For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die." Since then, Shrum has made his name and fortune with no-holds-barred efforts to win races for Democrats. A political idealist for hire, he has sculpted the campaign themes and honed the images of candidates whose politics he wishes to advance - George McGovern, Richard A. Gephardt, Al Gore, among others.

Annapolis Police Department spokeswoman Detective Amy Miguez knows residents like to take ride-alongs with officers. "I think there's a lot of interest in that," she said. "[Ride-alongs] are always a way for someone to really gain an understanding of what we do. Not only going on the calls with the officer, but then just interacting with the officer and asking all the questions you wanted to ask. " So when the department had a chance to take part in the first Global Police Tweet-a-Thon this month, Miguez saw it as a virtual ride-along.

Amy Webb believes in the power of awesomeness so much that she wants to bring some to Baltimore. As the founder of Webbmedia Group, a Baltimore-based digital media consulting firm, Webb moves in technology circles, where the idea for the Awesome Foundation originated. The Boston-based foundation, begun in 2009, is encouraging the creation of chapters around the world. The idea is that a "dean" and 10 trustees at each chapter give $1,000 grants every month to a project in their community that they deem, ahem, awesome.

By and large, they haven't.Although here and there a humorous ad has been aired poking fun at an opponent, the war of the television commercials has mainly been fought on a somber battleground, hitting political foes with straight attacks on their records and positions.

DANA POINT, Calif. -- Republican pollsters, media consultants and other political experts digesting the 2002 elections here yesterday turned frequently to Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s gubernatorial victory as they searched for lessons to teach future GOP candidates. Ken Mehlman, the White House political director and a Pikesville native, singled out Maryland's governor-elect -- who became the state's first Republican winner in 36 years by defeating a Kennedy -- as an example of the type of candidate Republicans need to field.

He has hammed it up with Mickey Mouse. Posed for photos with the glamorous Ziegfeld girls of Broadway's "Will Rogers Follies." Been knighted by royalty. Ticker-taped by a city. He has even been invited to judge this year's Miss America pageant in Atlantic City, N.J.His schedule, it turns out, won't permit his participation in that annual battle. Still, the postwar maneuvers of the latest U.S. hero, Desert Storm commander Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, have been so far-reaching, frequent and often fanciful that some cynics have started chirping about his turning up on "Hollywood Squares."

NEW ORLEANS -- Even in an age of negative politics, there's never been anything like this.An all-out attack campaign against former Klansman and neo-Nazi David Duke is clogging the TV and radio airwaves over Louisiana in the closing days of the governor's race.Virtually around the clock, anti-Duke ads spell out the frightening economic and social consequences of a Duke victory in tomorrow's runoff against Democratic former Gov. Edwin W. Edwards.Among the dire predictions: tens of thousands of jobs lost, a halt to educational improvements for an entire generation of children and an image problem to rival, well, Nazi Germany's.

WASHINGTON -- In the beginning, the political consultants were not allowed at the head table.They were one step above TV technicians, which was not a very high step.The consultants worried about the lighting and the make-up and they cooked up jingles for the campaign commercials.But they were not considered in the same league as the campaign managers. The managers knew the county chairmen and the city bosses; they knew the people who counted and what won elections.And the campaign managers did not allow the political consultants into the strategy sessions.
