As noted earlier, this was becoming clear during the campaign when Bush claimed his tax shift wouldn't interfere with the solvency of Social Security or other aspects of US budgeting, even if there were an emergency of some kind. Then there was the spectacular moment when Bush actually stated during the debates with Gore that Gore had raised twice as much in funds as Bush had. Then there was the "election" itself, when the RNC happily told us that hand-counting the ballots was less reliable than machine-counting.
Plot summary[ edit ] Dick and Nicole Diver are a glamorous couple who take a villa in the South of France and surround themselves with a circle of friends, mainly Americans.
Also staying at the resort are Rosemary Hoyt, a young actress, and her mother. Rosemary becomes infatuated with Dick and becomes close to Nicole. Dick toys with the idea of having an affair with Rosemary. Rosemary senses something is wrong with the couple, which is brought to light when one of the guests at a party reports having seen something strange in the bathroom.
Tommy Barban, another guest, comes loyally to the defense of the Divers. The action involves various other friends, including the Norths, where a frequent occurrence is the drunken behavior of Abe North.
The story becomes complicated when Jules Peterson, a black man, is murdered and ends up in Rosemary's bed, in a situation which could destroy Rosemary's career.
Dick moves the blood-soaked body to cover up any implied relationship between Rosemary and Peterson. It is revealed that, as a promising young doctor and psychiatrist, Dick had taken on a patient with an especially complex case of neuroses.
This patient is Nicole, whose sexual abuse by her father is suggested as the cause of her breakdown. As her treatment progresses, she becomes infatuated with Dick, who in turn develops Florence Nightingale syndrome.
