Of course, as candidates prefer the cozier confines of "Larry King Live" to, say "Meet the Press," they haven't shunned lifestyle mags. In its August issue Ladies' Home Journal ran covers featuring the president and his missus as well as Sen. Kerry and his Teresa. And Gruner & Jahr USA Publishing's Family Circle hosted its fourth first-lady bake-off. The winner, the mag claims, correctly predicts which husband will prevail in November. Ms. Heinz Kerry has brilliantly lowered expectations,saying her cookie is actually "not mine" and "a nasty recipe." No word, yet, on whether Sen. Kerry told F&S the president "hunts like a wuss," or if the president claims that the senator's lost numerous chances to bag big game via waffling over which weapon to employ.
