Giuliani's Florida win appears in danger
Rudy Giuliani splurged on Florida, lavishing time and money on a high-risk gamble that the state would vault him to the Republican presidential nomination.
Five days before his make-or-break primary, all that last year's national front-runner has to show for the love he's given the Sunshine State is a diminished standing.
"We are gaining support. I think you'll see that over the next few days," Giuliani insisted Wednesday, hours before a new poll showed him trailing John McCain and Mitt Romney.

Dems' negative campaigning intensifies
Clinton, Obama camps each blame the other for ongoing personal attacks
The South Carolina presidential campaigns of the three top Democrats traded accusations Wednesday as campaign officials worried the charges could turn off voters and divide the state's Democratic Party.
The testiness touched former President Bill Clinton, who told a CNN reporter in Charleston that the Barack Obama campaign was spinning the news media with negative attacks.

Stocks seek to extend gains
Wall Street sought to extend its gains Thursday, fluctuating as investors absorbed more bad news about bond insurers but received economic data that suggested the job market remains largely intact.
The market rose initially, but wobbled after news that Fitch Ratings lowered its rating on bond insurer Security Capital Assurance Ltd.

Tax rebates deal announced
Congressional leaders announced a deal with the White House Thursday on an economic stimulus package that would give most tax filers refunds of $600 to $1,200, and more if they have children.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Congress would act on the agreement — hammered out in a week of intense negotiations with Republican Leader John A. Boehner and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson — "at the earliest date, so that those rebate checks will be in the mail."

Treasure hunters in dispute with Spain
The playground legal principle "Finders keepers, losers weepers" is being put to the test in an international dispute over what could be the richest sunken treasure ever found: 17 tons of silver coins brought up from a centuries-old shipwreck.
A Florida treasure-hunting company, Odyssey Marine Exploration, found the wreck at the bottom of the Atlantic and argues that the age-old law of the high seas entitles the finders to most or all of the booty, said to be worth around $500 million.
