With the presidential election only
days away, even solidly Democratic
Ann Arbor received attention from a
wide array of famous Kerry supporters
and family members at rallies over the
Shortly before the football game
Saturday afternoon, Gov. Jennifer Gra-
nholm joined Democratic presidential
candidate John Kerry's brother Cam-
eron and several Michigan Democratic
politicians at an event on Elbel Field.
Granholm cited Kerry's proposals
for higher education - a $4,000 tax
credit for college tuition and a national
service program that would pay for
four years of college in exchange for
two years of service - as an important
reason for students to vote for Kerry.
She described Kerry's election as vital
to Michigan's future.
"There is nothing more important to
me as governor of this state than hav-
ing a partner in the White House," Gra-
Other Michigan Democrats at the
rally spoke in harsh terms against Presi-
dent Bush. Former U.S. Sen. Donald
Riegle, recalling his positive impres-
sions of Kerry from the years they spent
working together in the Senate, drew a
sharp contrast when he compared Kerry
"Number one. (Kerry) has a brain,"
Riegle said. "And number two, he has
Riegle, who was born in Flint, was
first elected to the U.S. House of Repre-
sentatives in 1967 and retired from the
Senate in 1995. At the event, he called
Bush the worst president in the history
of the United States.
"He's careless, he's reckless and he
needs to be removed next Tuesday,"
Rep. John Dingell (D-Dearborn)
attacked Republicans for allowing jobs
to be outsourced and accused them of
spreading wrong information in order
to disenfranchise Democratic voters.
"Those miserable Republicans are
saying, 'Let's vote for Kerry on Novem-
ber the third'," said Dingell, who is up
for re-election. "They'll do anything to
win." Dingell was referring to messages
chalked on University sidewalks telling
Kerry supporters to vote on the wrong
day; the correct election date is Nov. 2.
At a rally Friday in the Michigan
Union, Kerry's stepson Chris Heinz
joined actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Alli-
son Munn to stump for Kerry. While
Heinz praised Kerry's character and
higher education plans, Gyllenhaal and
Munn emphasized the importance of
the student vote in this election.
Asked about the perception that
Kerry is an elitist who does not under-
stand average Americans, Heinz said
his stepfather is dedicated to helping
those who are in need.
"John every day fights for people who
have less than him," Heinz said.
Despite repeated denials from Bush
and his administration that a military
draft is under consideration, speakers at
both events raised the chance of a draft
as a reason for college students to vote
"I don't care what George Bush is
telling you," said Munn, an actress best
known for her role in "That 70's Show."
"With the way that he's running this
country, the draft is a very, very real
Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), in an
interview after the Saturday rally,
said tomorrow's election is especially
important to college students because
Bush has led the country into "a dan-
gerous situation that could involve, at
least potentially, a draft."

First daughters Barbara and Jenna
Bush campaigned for their father at
a rally held Saturday in the Michi-
gan Union ballroom, trying to height-
en support and activity during the
critical 72-hour period before the elec-
The official campaign event, orga-
nized by Students for Bush and run
by the University's College Republi-
cans, attracted students from both the
University of Michigan and Michigan
State University. Awaiting the entrance
of President Bush's daughters, attend-
ees mingled and received free stickers,
posters and T-shirts.
After introductions by LSA senior
Scott Foley and LSA sophomore Antho-
ny Sandoval, co-chairs of the Universi-
ty's chapter of Students for Bush, and
Michael Plato, a state chair of Michigan
Students for Bush, Barbara and Jenna
took the podium and were met with
cheering, clapping and flashing cameras.
Jenna Bush spoke first, welcoming
everyone to the event and offering appre-
ciation for supporting her dad. Through-
out their speeches, Jenna and Barbara
emphasized the significance of political
involvement by young Americans.
"Young people do care," Barbara said.
"We care about spreading freedom around
the world, and we know that a world with
more freedom is more peaceful.
"Getting involved in a political cam-
paign can actually be a lot of fun," she
added, thanking all who volunteered
during this election.
Many who attended the event spoke
of the importance of this election and
the need to show their support for the
president, such as LSA freshman Leslie
Kehoe, a member of Students for Bush.
"I want to get more involved and I
haven't been to a rally like this before,"
Kehoe said. "It is good to get out and show
that U of M isn't completely liberal." .
In addition to promoting youth
involvement, the sisters spoke of the
qualities that make their father a go6d
"He will lead America with the same
values that he brought to the family
-strength, compassion and integrity,"
Barbara said. "He believes every person
has worth and dignity."
"My dad has many qualities impor-
tant in a president and in a dad: H-e
is open-minded, down to earth and
extremely disciplined," Jenna echoed.
"And he always supports his team until
the very last pitch," she added, evoking
images of her father's days as the owner
of the Texas Rangers baseball team.
At the conclusion of the rally, the sis-
ters signed posters, shook hands with
attendees and posed for photos before
leaving the ballroom.
The Bush daughters will continue
campaigning around the country until
election day. A rally was held at Michi-
gan State University in mid-September.
"It was great that they made the effort
to get young people involved in the elec-
tion," said LSA junior Megan Foley.
Ricke Stauffer, a senior in the College
of Engineering, agreed, saying, "It was
pretty cool that they showed up to sup-
port their dad. It was nice to meet some-
one that close to the presidency and to
see that one of the political parties act -
ally cares about young people, because in
the past we were pretty much ignored."
