Submission + - School presidents want to lower drinking age. (cnn.com)

the_humeister writes: Looks like there's a contigent of college presidents who think it's a good idea to lower the drinking age from 21 to 18.

Submission + - McCain Taps Carly Fiorina To Woo Clinton Backers (yahoo.com) 1

HangingChad writes: "Presumptive Republican nominee, John McCain, enlisted the help of former HP CEO Carly Fiorina to woo Clinton supporters. An interesting choice considering according to her Wikipedia entry that "Fiorina presided over a halving of Hewlett Packard's value during her tenure and heavy job losses. She was fired by HP's board due to dissatisfaction with her performance in February 2005." For those of you who remember those days, HP's stock price surged 7% on news of her departure. Is this who you'd want stumping for your presidential campaign?"
