Hard hitting journalism: How the 2008 candidates chill out
DEMOCRATS:

New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton: "Reading, crossword puzzles, going to the movies, spending time with family, playing cards."

Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards: "Reading, hanging around the house with family."

Illinois Sen. Barack Obama: "Loafing with my kids on the couch listening to them tell stories did it over Thanksgiving."

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson: "Horse-riding."

REPUBLICANS:

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani: "Golf or reading, depending on the weather."

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: "Running, hunting, fishing, or being at home with family and my three dogs."

Arizona Sen. John McCain: "Probably hiking around a place we have up near Sedona. It's so beautiful up there in the Red Rock country, and we have a place that's on Oak Creek. ... and we have picnics. It's not just strenuous hiking. You know, it's just kind of a recreational outing." In August 2006, he and son Jack hiked the Grand Canyon rim to rim "which almost killed me and he thought was a day at the beach."

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney: "Probably riding horses. In winter time, it's skiing. In summer time I mean, the thing I like most is being with my kids and grandkids, so sort of being with them, regardless of where it is."

Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson: "Campaigning."
