Inside the United Center, the cast of the Broadway hit "Rent" rehearsed the finale of tonight's convention session, the theme of which will be the achievements of the Clinton administration. The president will be seen on the big TV screens, live from his whistlestop tour.
He'll be in Ohio where today he told a class of police recruits he favors a law to ban gun ownership for anyone convicted of domestic abuse. Clinton arrives in Chicago Wednesday. In Chicago, the President's advance team is headed by his wife Hillary and Vice President Al Gore, who's taken to warming up his audiences with self-effacing humor. AL GORE:
The First Lady charmed the Connecticut delegation, extolling the President's accomplishments over four years and warning about negative campaigning by the other side.

A report from the Mayo Clinic finds that patients who are hostile are more than twice as likely as non-hostile patients to have a failed angioplasty.
During the procedure, a balloon catheter is inserted in narrowed heart arteries to open them up and keep the blood flowing.
Researchers followed patients who were rude, surly, and combative and compared them to others.
The study found the blood pressure and the heart rates of the hostile patients went up, increasing the adrenalin in their system which caused renewed damage to their arteries. wipe wipe wipe wipe

Those who've received an organ transplant are at risk for developing malignant tumors, but a new treatment is showing promise.
By mixing the patients own immune cells with an immunity booster---called
interleukin-2---and then reinjecting it back in the patient---the patients

own system can fight off the tumor.
Doctors at the University of Pittsburgh Medical center say tumors disappeared in 4 of 7 patients studied. wipe wipe wipe wipe
