Tom Daschle, the Majority Leader of the historic 107th Senate,
presents a candid insider's account of the workings of the U.S.
government during two of the most tumultuous years in the nation's
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 anthrax attacks on media and the
government (including Daschle's own office), 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.
Through it all, Senator Tom Daschle had, with the exception of the
President, the most privileged view of these unfolding
developments, both in front of and behind the closed doors of
government. 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 un-flinching 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--and sometimes did
not meet--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. Our choices,
based on what we have learned from our recent past, will affect our
future in profound ways. 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.
