    ADVANCE FOR USE MONDAY, OCT. 22, 2012 AND THEREAFTER - This combination of images made from video made available by the Democratic National Committee via the LBJ Library shows a girl plucking petals from a flower, left, and a mushroom cloud from a nuclear explosion in a 1964 presidential campaign television commercial titled "Peace, Little Girl" and known as the "Daisy Spot" made by the DNC for Lyndon B. Johnson in his race against former Sen. Barry Goldwater. Probably the most famous of all campaign commercials, the ad juxtaposed a little girl plucking the petals off of a flower with a countdown to a nuclear explosion in an attempt to characterize Goldwater as an extremist who couldn't be trusted with America's national security. It aired only once as a paid advertisement, but received far more attention in subsequent news reports. (AP Photo/Democratic National Committee)

    In this Sept. 5, 2012, photo, delegates pray during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. The placards on display as former President Bill Clinton addressed the DNC said, "Middle Class First." The rich also have featured in the rhetoric, albeit as a punching bag. But the poor? Not so much. They've been mentioned only fleetingly. The discrepancy makes sense, from the standpoint of campaign strategy for President Barack Obama. A large majority of Americas identify themselves as middle class, while the poor lack political clout for a host of reasons. Yet for a party that has long embraced a role as defender of the downtrodden, the rhetorical patterns are striking.(AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)

    In this Sept. 5, 2012, photo, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., addresses the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. The placards on display as former President Bill Clinton addressed the DNC said, "Middle Class First." The rich also have featured in the rhetoric, albeit as a punching bag. But the poor? Not so much. They've been mentioned only fleetingly. The discrepancy makes sense, from the standpoint of campaign strategy for President Barack Obama. A large majority of Americas identify themselves as middle class, while the poor lack political clout for a host of reasons. Yet for a party that has long embraced a role as defender of the downtrodden, the rhetorical patterns are striking. Cleaver, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, also has noticed the trend _ both at the convention and in the preceding months of campaigning. He said he appointed a group of his caucus members to meet with Democratic Party and Obama campaign officials, "saying to them, there seems to be, whether intentional or not, an exclusion of poor people."

    In this Spet. 5, 2012, photo, delegates watch as former President Bill Clinton addresses the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. The placards on display as Clinton addressed the DNC said, "Middle Class First." And indeed, speaker after speaker has evoked the party's devotion to the lot of middle-class Americans in 2012. The rich also have featured in the rhetoric, albeit as a punching bag. But the poor? Not so much. They've been mentioned only fleetingly. The discrepancy makes sense, from the standpoint of campaign strategy for President Barack Obama. A large majority of Americas identify themselves as middle class, while the poor lack political clout for a host of reasons.

Yosemite officials are expanding their efforts notify visitors to a complex of tent cabins who may have been exposed to a rare but potentially deadly rodent-carried virus. Officials said Wednesday they have notified 2,900 visitors who stayed in the Curry Village "Signature Cabins" since mid-May, up from 1,700 initially notified.

    FILE - In this Aug. 3, 2011, file photo President Barack Obama sidesteps a puddle as crosses the White House South Lawn, leaving Washington for DNC fundraisers in Chicago. Interviews with more than a dozen Democratic activists across the nation found support for Obama's more forceful message against Republicans in Congress and interest in rebutting the GOP presidential field. Obama's tone and message is pivotal, they said. Many expressed unhappiness with his attempt to reach concessions with Republicans during the summer debt ceiling debate, but were reassured by his proposed jobs bill in September, and his hitting the road to sell the package.

    FILE - In this Sept. 20, 2011 file photo, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama walk off stage after attending a DNC fundraiser at Gotham Hall in New York. Looking for a big-name speaker? Now's the time to send President Barack Obama an invitation, especially if your group represents a key political constituency. With the 2012 election ramping up, he's making the rounds of awards dinners and black-tie galas for blacks, Hispanics, Jews, women, gays _ Italian-Americans this weekend _ as he looks to reach his voters any way he can.

    FILE - In this Sept. 20, 2011 file photo, first lady Michelle Obama gestures before introducing her husband President Barack Obama at a DNC fundraiser at Gotham Hall in New York. She's mingled barefoot among Aspen's elite, stirred a Vermont utility executive to tears and bucked up disenchanted New Yorkers. The 2012 presidential campaign is well under way for Michelle Obama, and the first lady is promising to put herself into the election effort like never before. More than a year from Election Day, she is hauling in millions in campaign cash and sketching a portrait of her husband drawn with an intimacy that no one else could duplicate.
