like no other in the life of the nation. This was the era of the first
presidential election to be decided by the United States Supreme Court, the
fifty-fifty Senate, the horror of September 11, the war on terrorism, corporate
scandals that shook the economy, the inexorable move toward war with Iraq, and

believe in government.
