Good evening, I'm Joy Sutton filling in tonight for Jean Jadhon.
Slobodan Milosevic (vich) is the target of massive demonstrations in Belgrade.
But he is no where to be found.
And the tension is mounting.
He's already lost control of the Parliament building and the state-run TV.
And now he's being abandonend by the official news agency.
To make matters worse, the leader of the opposition has now declared himself president.
For the latest we go to Lisa Lee in Washington, DCTERMS..

((Narr: Chaos erupted on the streets of Belgrade. A mob of hundreds of thousands of protestors stormed the Parliament building, setting it on fire, in numbers not seen before during the 13-year reign of Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic.

(poss nat spike)

Addressing the crowd, Vojislav Kostunica declared himself the rightful leader of yugoslavia , and called the first meeting of the new Parliament.

(nat spike of Kostunica)



(track)


Even Yugoslav state run television, one of the main propaganda tools of Milosevic, announced Kostunica is the official president-elect.
Police tried to control the crowds by firing tear gas, but eventually many of them threw off their uniforms and joined the demonstrations.
President Clinton expressed solidarity with the protestors, but said the US would not intervene militarily.

(clinton sot AT 11:55:17)

"i thin the people are trying to get their country back, and we support democracy and the will of the serbian people."

(maybe a nat spike?)



(track)


The protests began calmly several days ago when Milosevic refused to accept defeat, after losing the national election ten days ago to Kostunica.
The mob charged the Parliament demanding Milosevic step down.
Secretary of State Madeline Albright urged Milosevic not to fight democracy.

(albright sot at 13:09:09)

"The people of Yugoslavia have made their will known. Milosevic should not thwart them."))

Locals are calling it "The Thrill in the Ville" -- Danville that is, the site of the first and only Vice Presidential clash.

In 90 minutes, both candidates have to sell themselves, and sell their their bosses.

Republican Dick Cheney is expected to hammer home the party's plans on prescription drugs and saving social security, while at the same time, criticizing Al Gore's fundraising practices.

NAT/SOT LIEBERMAN



(NARR:)


Democrat Joe Lieberman's could target Cheney's conservative voting record and his connections to the oil-industry.
But especially vulnerable is the GOP's tax cut proposal, which Lieberman will insist goes only to the wealthiest 1 percent of voters.

NAT/SOT



(NARR:)


The quaint college town of Danville Kentucky has been preparing for this debate for months.
It's 16-thousand residents pride themselves on living in a "city of firsts" - and that it is.

(COWAN ON CAM: 10:58:15)

"Not only does it boast the first Post Office in the nation - but it is perhaps the fist city where the Democratic Campaign Headquarters, is right NEXT DOOR to the Republican Headquarters.

(SOT/TONY WILDER, DEMOCRATIC PARTY CHAIRMAN 10:38:12)

"I thought it would be neat to centralize all the partisan activities you see, next door to each other (laughs)."

(SOT/JACK POGUE, REPUBLICAN PARTY HEADQUARTERS 10:38:20)

"We consider them our allies, just like the Russians (laughs)."

(NARR:)


Like the town - the debate will be informal, with the candidates sitting side by side at an oval table - each given two minutes to answer questions.

Nothing has been left to chance. Both sides are hoping practice makes perfect -- because in a race this close, it has to be. Lee Cowan, CBS News, Danville, Kentucky.
