Like No Other Time: The 107th Congress and the Two Years That Changed America Forever | [Tom Daschle, Michael D'Orso]

Like No Other Time: The 107th Congress and the Two Years That Changed America Forever

The 107th Congress faced a time 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 other dramatic events, all leading up to the historic midterm elections of 2002.

Publisher's Summary

The 107th Congress faced a time 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 other dramatic events, all leading up to the historic midterm elections of 2002.

In Like No Other Time, Daschle offers a riveting account of his singular perspective on a time when the nation faced deadly and elusive external enemies and a level of domestic political contention rarely seen in American history. Senator Daschle is unflinching in his impressions of the key political figures of our time from both parties. The result is an acutely perceptive assessment of how our government met the challenges of a remarkable era.

As it was during the years of the 107th Congress, the United States is once again at a critical and historic crossroads. For Senator Daschle, the first and perhaps most important choice lies with what kind of representation and leadership we want in government. It is a choice between a political party with a core philosophical belief in the power of our collective will to confront these challenges through our government, and one dominated by a group of people who don't like and don't believe in government.

    "Good book, terrible narration"

    Daschle's writing is probably not as egocentric or hyperbolic as Stephen Hoye?s read, but the combined package often makes the Senator sound foolish. The book is interesting, but rather self-serving and oddly familiar at times. Daschle has a very important role in the events of 2000-2002, and his views are worthwhile. That?s the good news and it makes the book worthwhile. On the other hand, Daschle presents his role and his life as if the reader is completely familiar with all things Daschle.

    This may be an unfair criticism because of the breathless and overacted read by Stephen Hoye. Hoye?s pregnant pauses and exaggerated intonations make even the smallest event sound as if it took place on December 7, 1941. Paul Harvey sounds monotone next to Hoye. The book would have easily earned an extra star if it were not for the narration.
