Ice hits north Georgia again, moves into Carolinas
ATLANTA (AP) — The second ice storm in a week made highways treacherous Saturday, leaving the pavement so slippery in places people couldn’t stand, let alone drive.
Cars slid into police cars and trucks trying to clear the roads, and ice-covered overpasses and interchanges were shut down across the state.
Another storm earlier in the week had knocked out electrical service to thousands of customers.
“It just happened so suddenly,” said state Department of Transportation spokeswoman KL im Law. “You look out your window and not see any ice on the trees and assume it’s OK. Well, it’s anything but.”
The ice was blamed for a 47 -car
pileup at the junction of Interstate 20 and Interstates 75/85 in downtown Atlanta. Later, 12 other cars slid into each other on 1-20. One traffic death in the state was blamed on the ice.
“We’ve had (vehicles) slide into IO of our officer’s cars,” said DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Mikki Jones. “Everyone needs to slow down. We’re seeing people try to drive 70 miles an hour on the interstate.”
As the weather system turned up the East Coast, storm advisories were posted Saturday across South and North Carolina, where residents were still digging out after last week’s record snowfall of 20 inches. An ice storm warning was in effect for northeastern Alabama.Dreams come. go with N.H. vote

EXETER, N.H. (AP) — With 800 people packed into a school gymnasium to hear him speak, and a handful more braving subfreezing weather to shake his hand, John McCain soaked up the scene and said: “This is the highlight of my political life.”
These are dreamy days for the men who want to be president. But there is anxiety, too. For some, the verdict of the notoriously fickle New Hampshire voters will spell the end of their candidacies — or signal the beginning of the end.
McCain’s outcome is critical. Unlike national front-runner George W. Bush, McCain cannot afford to lose Tuesday’s primary.
If Bush puts McCain away in New Hampshire, the Arizona senator may look back at Friday’s jam-packed town hall meeting and realize, sadly, that it was indeed the highlight.
“The stakes are highest for McCain,” said state GOP chairman Steve Duprey. “But every candidate has something to accomplish before leaving New Hampshire.”
The front-runners must avoid lengthy nomi
nation fights. The top challengers must strike quickly. The also-rans must catapult themselves into the first tier.
Steve Forbes, the millionaire conservative paying for his own campaign, finished a solid second in Iowa’s caucuses, where McC ain did not compete. After billing New Hampshire as a three-way race, Forces needs to finish second or a close third for a decent return on his steep investment.
“The only poll that counts is on Tuesday,” Forbes said Saturday at a Manchester diner as McCain and Bush led in voter surveys. “I would think that given what has happened so far this year, you would look at polls with a bit of a skeptical eye.”
Dreaming big, he added, “I'm in through November, and then FII be taking the oath of office.”
On the Democratic side, Vice President Al Gore rocked rival Bill Bradley in Iowa’s caucuses and could virtually end his threat with another big victory Tuesday. Party leaders might start calling for Bradley to step aside,
allowing Gore to save his resources for the general election fight.
The former New Jersey senator, however, shows no sign of quitting: tracking polls suggest he may have stopped his slide in New Hampshire; he has enough money to compete beyond the state; and he already has scratched out a travel schedule through March 7, when a series of primaries are scheduled from New York to California.
“You go into a different kind of campaign. It’s a national campaign at that point,” Bradley said.
Democrats have no delegate-awarding contests between New Hampshire and March 7, giving Tuesday’s winner five weeks to build momentum and a sense of inevitability.
Inevitability has been Bush’s greatest political asset on the Republican side, with many of his supporters backing him because he seems the most likely to succeed in November. Losing New Hampshire would suddenly make him vulnerable, especially if he lost by more than a few percentage points.

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Republican George W. Bush, who would be president, campaigned for the first time Saturday alongside his father, who once was, as the field of White House hopefuls plowed toward this week’s leadoff New Hampshire primary. Bill Bradley charged Al Gore was trying to “dance around” earlier qualms about abortion as he bid to cut into the vice president’s core Democratic support.
With the polls pointing to a tight finish, at least on the Republican side, Sen. John McCain mocked Bush’s endgame strategy as “quick, get me another endorsement” from the GOP establishment. People lining up behind the front-runner now are “the same ones running our party in 1996 and 1998, when we lost elections,” said the Arizona senator, who has come from far back in the pack to within striking distance of victory in the state.
Gores says abortion position has changed
MILFORD, N.H. (AP) — Vice President Al Gore retracted his 13-year-old statement equating abortion to “the taking of a human life” as he scrambled Saturday to keep the issue, a traditional stumbling block for Republicans, from tripping him up against Democrat Bill Bradley.
“Yes, my position has changed,” Gore said. “I strongly support a woman’s right to choose and if (Bradley) disputes that, then he is making a mistake.”
Bradley began airing a new television ad in the state Saturday in which the former New Jersey senator calls himself the only presidential candidate who “has been pro-choice for everyone all the time.”
Campaigning in Manchester, Bradley said, “I was pro-choice from the day I entered politics. ... It’s not an issue you can dance around. ”

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Clinton urged the nation Saturday to remain on the course his administration has set, policies that he said led America from deep budget deficits to “unimagined economic strength.”
In his weekly radio address, Clinton underscored themes from Thursday night’s 89-minute State of the Union message and said the United States has arrived at a pivotal moment where it is possible to “shape the future of our dreams for our children.”
Clinton, who has one year left of his second four-year term, said he will meet with Republican and Democratic House and Senate leaders Tuesday at the
White House “to discuss how we can move forward
“Now is not the time to change course,” Clinton said. “If we will stay this course, we can pay the country’s debt off for the first time since
Republicans, portraying the president as a wasteful big spender, said they will reject his new budget, write their own and carve an attention-getting tax cut out of the budget surpluses economists now project for the next decade and more. The Congressional Budget Office has set the figure at $1.9 trillion by 2010.
Protestors march for Elian’s return to Cuba
MIAMI (AP) — About 200 chanting, flag-waving protesters marched in front of the Immigration and Naturalization Services Office Saturday, demanding that 6-year-old Elian Gonzalez be sent home to his father in Cuba.
But Rep. Dan Burton, whose congressional maneuvering to keep Elian in the United States has infuriated the boy’s father, said Saturday that the boy told him he doesn’t want to go back.
“He’s a very intelligent young man and I was able
to ask him without any coaching a couple of questions,” the Indiana Republican said after meeting tor 30 minutes with Elian at the home where the boy is staying with relatives.
Elian has been the subject of heated debate since he was found clinging to an inner tube Nov. 25 off the Florida coast. His mother and IO others traveling with him drowned during an effort to leave Cuba. Elian’s grandmothers, who have been in the United States, were expected to return to Cuba during the weekend.
