Monson named new Mormon president - Candidates make final Super Tuesday push - Obama looking to Hispanics - Report faults security at U.S. monuments - Bush says budget proposal is sound.



Monson named new Mormon president
Thomas S. Monson, a leader who became known for his folksy storytelling as he ascended through church ranks, was introduced Monday as the 16th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Monson, 80, succeeds Gordon B. Hinckley, who died last month at age 97. Out of respect for the deceased president, the Mormon church never names a successor until after funeral services. Hinckley was buried Saturday.

Candidates make final Super Tuesday push
Sen. John McCain defended his conservative credentials Monday as rival Mitt Romney claimed he was true to core Republican values in the final push before Super Tuesday. Democratic Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton, locked in a tight race, searched for support in the delegate-rich Northeast.
Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, told voters in a series of coast-to-coast stops that Republicans were telling him, "We don't want Senator McCain; we want a conservative."

Obama looking to Hispanics
As Super Tuesday approaches, Barack Obama is ratcheting up his appeals to Hispanic voters, who will make up a significant portion of the electorate in key states like California, New York and Arizona.
The Illinois senator trails his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, by 30 percentage points among Hispanics in national polls.

Report faults security at U.S. monuments
Inadequate security has left national icons such as the Washington Monument and the Statue of Liberty vulnerable, according to a government report on the U.S. Park Police released Monday.
The Interior Department's inspector general accuses the Park Police of an "overall lack of commitment to its icon security responsibilities," citing chronic understaffing along with a lack of coordination and training.

Bush says budget proposal is sound
President Bush said Monday his $3.1 trillion budget plan will keep the U.S. economy growing and protect the U.S. militarily. Bush reviewed the budget with his Cabinet. He held aloft a computer tablet that contained the budget details, which were transmitted electronically to Congress.
"This is a good, solid budget," the president said. "It's not only an innovative budget in that it's coming to Congress over the Internet. It's a budget that's balanced — gets to balance in 2012 and saves taxpayers money."
