On the Lighter Side

coverAdv.--Absolute Power: The Legacy of Corruption in the Clinton/Reno Justice Department--Bill Clinton and Al Gore consistently saw the courts as a means to achieve political ends. With Janet Reno as attorney general, they gave the United States the most politicized justice department we have ever endured. Instead of disinterestedly pursuing justice, America's federal lawyers became tools to give the president and the vice president of the United States absolute power.
coverAdv.--At Any Cost: How Al Gore Tried to Steal the Election--The bulk of the book zeros in on Gore and his goal of "seizing the presidency." In one nifty bit of reporting, Sammon tracks down a navy lieutenant whose military ballot Gore's lawyers were determined to throw out. Sammon describes the unseemly spectacle of their success. Sammon also covers all that business about the chads, Gore's "smear campaign" against Secretary of State Katherine Harris, and the Supreme Court's controversial Bush v. Gore ruling. This is by no means the definitive story of what happened in Florida, but it's a useful piece of journalism--and one that Bush's supporters will read with that heady mixture of outrage and excitement that politics uniquely provides.
