The Contender

The Contender Senator Laine Hanson has been chosen by the President of the United States to become his Vice President when the current second in command dies. That means that Laine Hanson has to sit in front of the Congress and be confirmed.

Her competence and her character are put on trial when it is discovered that she may have been involved in some sexual deviance when she was in college. When confronted with questions she will not answer. Not to anybody. Not the congress, not her adversaries, not her family and not even the President himself.

She will not back down even if it means her own personal destruction...
