Other Services Eyed by Army for Recruiting
By ERIC SCHMITT

WASHINGTON, July 8 - The Army is looking for a few good sailors and airmen. Actually, more than just a few.

In what some military experts see as another sign of how the Army's commitments in Iraq and Afghanistan have strained it, the service for the first time will soon begin aggressively recruiting thousands of sailors and airmen who are otherwise scheduled to leave the Navy and Air Force because of cutbacks.

Winning Between the Lines
By PETER BUTTIGIEG, PETER V. EMERSON AND GANESH SITARAMAN

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Want to know who is going to win the presidential election?
Look at the party platforms.

True, few voters actually read party platforms, which are intended to be statements of the party's positions and proposals. And who can blame them? The documents — often leaden, homogenized and full of generic campaign-speak — can send even the most ardent political observer into the deepest of slumbers.

But an analysis of both parties' platforms since 1960 suggests that their length and content can be remarkably helpful in gauging a party's health and, in the end, its chances of electoral success.
