Just two days after George W. Bush campaigned through the battleground state of Michigan, Al Gore began his final campaign push, trying to energize his Democratic base -- in a state he badly needs.

(SOT/ AL GORE, DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE)

Launching what he called his "Great Lakes Prosperity Tour" --the Vice President was touting the economy -- warning voters that Bush's Social Security and Tax Cut plans could leave the country short changed, and it debt for years to come.

With just 9 days left in the campaign -- and many polls showing Bush with the edge, the Gore camp needs MORE than just good economic numbers, and is trying to make Bush's perceived lack of experience as an issue onto itself.
SUPER: East Lansing, MI
And the New York Times agreed -- throwing it's weight behind Al Gore on Sunday, citing the Vice President's knowledge and experience which it said made him best equipped for the job.

(COWAN ON CAM:)

SUPER: LEE COWAN/CBS NEWS-DALLAS "But Bush got his share of endorsements too -- and in a race this close, likability can count MORE than experience -- and privately, the Bush camp is starting to feel confident."

SUPER: Austin, TX
(NARR:)


Unlike the Vice President, Bush took a day OFF from campaigning -- going to church and staying at his ranch near Austin Texas on Sunday.

(SOT: GEORGE W. BUSH)


He's preparing for his final assault on the elections biggest prize: California. Once considered a Democratic stronghold, Bush has been making inroads in California. $5 million dollars in TV advertising here last week --and this taped address to a Latino gathering in Los Angeles on Sunday, the latest efforts to keep the pressure on.

Both candidates head into the final week of campaigning in need of a clear message -- a message most analysts agree, won't necessarily be made in a nice way. Lee Cowan, CBS News, Dallas.))
