Florida’s Democratic Delegate Mess - Romney, McCain Trade Primary-Day Attacks - House approves economic recovery plan - Snipes trial offers IRS perfect script - Congress unlikely to buy Bush proposals.

Florida's Democratic Delegate Mess
What a strange situation we're facing here in Florida today.
No Democratic delegates (there would be 210) will come out of this primary — at least not as long as the Democratic National Committee adheres to its penalty rules because the state moved its contest up so early. And only half (57) of the state's Republican delegates will be counted, conforming to the national G.O.P.'s decision for the same reason.

Romney, McCain Trade Primary-Day Attacks
Senator and Ex-Governor in Dead Heat in Florida Race; Giuliani Hopes for Upset. Voters are casting ballots today in a pivotal Florida primary that will give the GOP winner the biggest delegate haul to date and frontrunner momentum going into the crucial Feb. 5 Super-Duper Tuesday contests.
Sen. John McCain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are running in a statistical dead heat in the state, at 32 and 31 percent, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani trailing at 14 percent and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee at 13 percent.

House approves economic recovery plan
The House, seizing a rare moment of bipartisanship to respond to the economy's slump, overwhelmingly passed a $146 billion aid package Tuesday that would speed rebates of $600-$1,200 to most taxpayers.
The plan, approved 385-35 after little debate, would send at least some rebate to anyone with at least $3,000 in income, with more going to families with children and less going to wealthier taxpayers.

Snipes trial offers IRS perfect script
Even Hollywood couldn't have written a more ideal script for the Internal Revenue Service than actor Wesley Snipes' tax-fraud trial.
At a time when millions of Americans are buckling down to prepare their taxes, Snipes is being cast as a villainous example of the dangers of joining with Internet-fueled activists who claim the IRS has no authority to collect taxes.

Congress unlikely to buy Bush proposals
A Democratic Congress is poised to heed President Bush's call to help save the economy, but may not give him much else after a State of the Union speech that recycled many of the administration's past initiatives.
A lame duck president called again for immigration reform, an end to lawmakers' pet projects, control of Social Security spending and making tax cuts permanent. Democrats have rejected those Bush initiatives before.
