Sen. Barack Obama

Sen. Barack Obama

Barack Obama made strides toward easing voters’ concerns about his candidacy in Tuesday night’s debate. John McCain, despite raising pointed questions about his rival’s readiness, didn’t create the game-changing moment he’ll need between now and Election Day. There are still four weeks to go, but time is running out on McCain. Poised and confident, Obama directly confronted his greatest hurdle — and did it by turning the tables on McCain during a foreign policy question. “Now Senator McCain suggests that somehow, you know, I’m green behind the ears and I’m just spouting off, and he’s somber and responsible,” Obama said as McCain laughed and said: “Thank you very much.” Obama then bluntly challenged McCain’s steadiness: “This is a guy who sang bomb, bomb, bomb Iran, who called for the annihilation of North Korea — that I don’t think is an example of speaking softly.” Needing a big moment — he trails in key state polling — McCain tried to stage one by saying he would order the Treasury Department to enact a sweeping $300 billion program to shield homeowners from mortgage foreclosure. The drama was lost in part because he didn’t provide details, leaving those to his aides to deliver in a news release.

Sherri Shepherd went off on Elisabeth Hasselbeck Tuesday morning during a Hot Topics conversation about – what else – the presidential race between Barack Obama and John McCain.
For the second day in a row, Hasselbeck suggested that Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee, has not been open about his past relationship with former 60s radical William Ayers. She also said it was inconceivable that Obama was unaware that his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, “was a hatemonger.” Co-host Whoopi Goldberg immediately checked her on the “hatemonger” label, saying in Wright’s defense, “this person did not like America. As a black person, we are very, very lucky. You don’t see where that’s relevant?” After more back-and-forth, Hasselbeck said of Obama in general, “Are you a liar or do you have poor judgment?”
At this, Shepherd whipped around toward her Republican co-host and snapped: “Can we talk about poor judgment? What about the woman that McCain left that didn’t even want him to know that she had been in a horrible, horrible accident, and then he came back, met another woman named Cindy McCain and left the woman that waited for him. Can we talk about that?”

Translation: John McCain’s first wife Carol, a successful swimwear model when they married in 1965, was disfigured in a car accident while her husband was in a POW camp in Vietnam. (Icy roads caused her car to skid into a telegraph pole on Christmas Eve, 1969. Her pelvis and one arm were shattered and she suffered massive internal injuries. To save her legs, surgeons had to cut away huge chunks of shattered bone, taking with it her tall figure. She was confined to a wheelchair, was forced to use a catheter and has walked with a pronounced limp ever since.) She hoped that news reports of her accident would not reach McCain at the infamous “Hanoi Hilton” because she didn’t want to weaken his spirit. When McCain returned home in 1973, he began cheating on Carol and eventually divorced her in 1980 to marry Cindy (18 years his junior and the heir to an Arizona brewing fortune) one month later.



Halle Berry

Halle Berry

Esquire magazine has crowned Halle Berry “Sexiest Woman Alive” on the cover of its upcoming November issue, which features a photo spread of the actress in various white tank tops.
“I don’t know exactly what that title means, but being 42 and having just had a baby, I think I’ll take it,” said the Oscar winner, who gave birth to her daughter Nahla in March with boyfriend Gabriel Aubry. “Sexiness is a state of mind — a comfortable state of being. It’s about loving yourself in your most unlovable moments.” Berry, however, says she can’t be selfish with her new “Sexiest Woman Alive” tag. “I share this title with every woman, because every woman is a nominee for it at any moment,” she says. Meanwhile, Aubry told Us magazine that he and Halle are hoping Nahla will have a little brother or sister in the near future. “Yeah, we are working on that!” he said at Elle’s 15th Annual Women in Hollywood event in Beverly Hills, where Berry was honored on Monday. Despite wanting to expand their family, Aubry said, “We have no plans for marriage. We are more married than ever, really.”
