The day Americans pick their next president is now just 119 days away. Both major party candidates will be in Washington Tuesday to address the LULAC convention, the League of United Latin American Citizens.

Before his appearance, Barack Obama will also be speaking to voters in Atlanta.

Pet ownership has not been an issue in the campaign, but if it were, it would help Republican John McCain. He has more than a dozen pets, including fish. And an AP-Yahoo-news poll finds him leading among pet owners, 42% to 37%.

The Obamas have granted the TV show "Access Hollywood" rare access to their daughters. The show airs a four-part interview with the Obamas starting Tuesday night.

At one point, ten-year-old Malia Obama says she had to tell her dad not to give her friends a campaign-style handshake when they come over.

Malia says, "You really don't shake kids' hands that much. You just wave or say hi."
