U.S. invites Israel and Palestinians to Annapolis
The United States on Tuesday invited Israel and the Palestinians to attend a meeting in Annapolis, Maryland, next week that it hopes will launch formal peace talks, U.S., Israeli and Palestinian officials said.
Dozens of countries will be asked to attend the November 27 talks, including Syria and Saudi Arabia which do not have diplomatic relations with Israel and whose presence might give Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas political cover to make compromises.

The most likable candidates? Obama and Giuliani are tops
Democrats and Republicans alike have strong opinions about who has the best chance of capturing the presidency in 2008—Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani, that is—but that's not necessarily the candidate they'd rather go bowling with, take along on a family vacation or even vote for.
Which candidate is the most likable? On the Republican side, Giuliani gets the nod, both from GOP voters and among voters overall.

A tactic of Bush's on bills is assailed

Republican presidential candidate John McCain denounced yesterday President Bush's use of "signing statements" to reserve the right to violate certain laws, and he vowed to abandon the practice if he becomes president.
"I would never issue a signing statement," the Arizona senator said at a Rotary Club meeting in Nashua, adding that he "would only sign it or veto" any legislation that reached his desk as president.

Report: Ashcroft firm in big money deal
Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft's law firm could earn $52.2 million helping the U.S. attorney's office in New Jersey monitor a leading maker of knee and hip replacements, according to recent public filings.
Ashcroft's firm is among five legal teams U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie hand-picked to watch the manufacturers, who agreed in September to pay $311 million and hire monitors to settle allegations they paid surgeons to use and promote their devices.

Busy travel puts pressure on screeners
During the busy Thanksgiving travel period, screeners at the nation's airports are prepared to find the unexpected in passengers' carry-on luggage. Lara Uselding, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration, said airlines can accept some unusual items with advance planning, as long as they are not prohibited by the TSA. During the holiday travel crunch, screeners are under pressure to move passengers along quickly. And they have learned to anticipate just about anything.
