(( The negotiations were often tough. But after days of talks, the Serbs say..."the war is over." NATO says, "it's a first step."
William Cohen, Defense Secretary: "If the Serbs honor the agreement and they pull out on schedule, NATO will pause and end its air campaign."
NATO says Serb forces should start pulling out of Kosovo within hours. Clear evidence of that would suspend the bombing... then--the U-N Security Council will vote on a resolution allowing 50 thousand NATO peacekeepers to begin moving into the shattered province. 19-hundred of those troops will be US Marines.
Javier Solana, NATO Secretary-General: "I am very happy today. I think today is a great day. It's a great day for the alliance, but much more importantly, it's a great day for the cause of justice for the people of Kosovo."
Yugoslav commanders and NATO leaders reached the agreement after a 24-hour marathon session. The talks were reportedly tedious, with Serb commanders wanting to discuss the definition of nearly every word in the six-page document NATO called non-negotiable. In the end -- Yugoslavia was still trying to put a positive spin on its surrender.
Svetozan Marjanovic, Yugoslav General: "During these negotiations we showed we are really for peace."))

Cassidy Bedrosian went into labor early this morning and the results came in a lot faster than the returns in the 14th District primary.
Twenty minutes after arriving at the hospital, the Bedrosians were celebrating the birth of their fourth child, Madeline (MAD-eh-line).
She's the couple's third daughter.
Mom, and the new campaigner, are doing great.
