RICHARD CLARKE

ELECTIONS

Here are the major candidates' websites:

• John Kerry for President (johnkerry.com)

YOUR TURN

I've had a request to index columns by Helen Thomas, the veteran White House reporter who now does a column for Hearst. Does anybody know of a newspaper that regularly runs her stuff? JPZLives only lists newspaper columnists (we've got to draw the line somewhere), and the only place I could find her regularly is a Boston TV station. Any ideas, y'all?
