The 1995 Congress: The First Hundred Days and Beyond
Norman J. Ornstein and Amy L. Schenkenberg analyze the 1994 midterm elections and provide an early assessment of the work of the 104th Congress. They find the first three months of this Congress to be dramatically different from the beginnings of any other in at least four decades. But the overall impact that will be made by this Congress over the remainder of 1995 and 1996 is still to be determined by the skill of party leaders, the behavior of rank-and-file members, and the role of the president.
