    One day in 1964, a New York advertising-jingle composer in his early 30s received an unlikely job offer. The composer, Mitch Leigh, the Brooklyn-born son of a Jewish furrier from Ukraine, had no theater experience to speak of.

We heard it not just from our friends in Labor, political pundits and donors, but also among ourselves." A Democratic majority in '04 seemed "out of reach. Bush was strong, our presidential prospects were uncertain and our Senate candidates unknown." Bush and Karl Rove envisioned their "Dream Team" of Senate recruits, including: Jennifer Dunn in WA; Mike Huckabee in AR; Ed...
