The feud between the Perot and Ventura supporters culminated in this meeting in Nashville last month.. both sides trying to shout each other down as party chairman and Ventura ally Jack Gargan was voted out after less than two months as party chairman.
Gargan has refused to turn over the reins, however.. he says the meeting was illegal and therefore the vote to remove him doesn't count.
Pat Choate and other Perot supporters disagree.. they're asking a federal judge to settle it.

In daylight, the broken windows were evident as police worked inside the home to gather more evidence, and former hostages Andy McCord and Lynn Whitehead returned to try to resume their lives, a task made none the easier by the horde of waiting reporters. They spent four days in captivity, and Tuesday relived those terrifying hours that included tears, talk of surrender and even suicide.

Police described Palczynski as a man obsessed with his former girlfriend, Tracey Whitehead. Negotiators were convinced that his obsession would have led him to kill all the hostages, and that he was bent on what they called suicide by cop.

((RUSTY WALLACE: I FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT. I WENT UP THERE A FEW WEEKS AGO AND BROKE MY OWN RECORD. I MADE NINE 30 LAPS RUNS, WHICH IS A LOT OF RUNING OUT THERE. I THINK WE DID TEN QUALIFYING RUNS, SO I FEEL REAL GOOD ABOUT MY CHANCES FOR A POLE, A NEW TRACK RECORD AND A VICTORY.))
