 "Warren Omission" Excerpt
Cooper, Russell, Boggs, and Ford all worked in a venue where research and debate, strenuous as both might be, almost always led to a preordained legislative result.
John McCloy arrived after 125 of the 683 questions had been asked; Ford arrived at question 130 and left at 450; and Cooper arrived at question 314 and left at 492, which translates into presence for about 26 per cent of the testimony.
Ford and Cooper, who had come and gone during the testimony of Curry, were not seen again that day, making a total fabrication of the statement that they were present for the testimony of four witnesses, when, in fact, they heard a portion of the testimony of one.

And winning a contested primary over several more-conservative candidates, as Schwarz did in early August, makes him downright remarkable--so much so that the beleaguered band of Republican moderates and mavericks in Congress is hailing his nomination as a sign that their fortunes have finally turned.
Arizona Senator John McCain, who campaigned for Schwarz, went so far as to suggest that the Michigan Republican's election could ease the overall pattern of ideological polarization in Congress.
Far from being the harbinger of a new era of political cooperation, they argue, Schwarz is simply the last egg to hatch from an ideological breed that will soon be every bit as extinct as the dinosaurs.

 TIME.com: Re-Enlistment in Kentucky -- Jul 16, 1956 -- Page 1
From John Sherman Cooper came a telegram saying that he would give up his job as Ambassador to India after all, and would run for the unexpired (four years) U.S. Senate term of the late Alben Barkley.
For able John Cooper, twice elected to unexpired terms and twice defeated for full terms in the Senate,* the decision was an about-face from his earlier statements.
Cooper was at least the third candidate personally recruited this year by President Eisenhower in an effort to people the Congress with his kind of Republicans (others: Oregon's Douglas McKay, Washington's Arthur Langlie).

 Introduction
After President John F. Kennedy was killed in 1963, America became deeply involved in the Vietnam War.
But it was the young president’s efforts to end the Cold War, to prevent Israel from acquiring the Bomb, and his efforts to maintain Arab unity in the Yemen war that made pro-Israel forces decide to stage a coup d’état in the fall of 1963.
While in custody, Oswald had not cooperated with the conspirators and it was decided that he must be killed.

 Lame Democrats and Tame Republicans; No Leaders in Congress Against This War   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
We hear the same rhetoric today, but in the past there was an important difference: then, the critics of the war did not just talk, they acted using the prerogatives the Constitution gave them as members of Congress to pursue their convictions in legislation.
Republican John Sherman Cooper, Ky., joined with Democrat Frank Church from Idaho, and liberals James McGovern, D-S.D., and Mark Hatfield, R-Ore., crafted separate amendments to annual defense spending bills to bring U.S. troops home by a date certain.
More conscious of the meaning of the term leader, Senators John McCain, Ariz., Lindsey Graham, S.C., and John Warner, Va., introduced amendments to impede torture by Americans, but, like the Democrats, these senators failed to bring their measures to a vote.
