No lawsuit in recent history has been the source of more partisan rancor than Bush v. Gore. It divided everyone, it seems, except the two attorneys who argued opposing sides of the 2000 case before the U.S. Supreme Court: Theodore Olson and David Boies.

“When I was watching David on television explaining the positions he was advancing on behalf of Vice President Gore, no matter how much I disagreed with him, I found myself nodding my head,” says Olson with a grin. “I thought that was really dangerous.” Adds Boies of Olson: “In the Bush v. Gore arguments you could sit back and really admire what [Ted] was doing and his command of the cases, his command of the facts, his ability to weave them together, and to actually tell a story. . . . But you couldn’t actually enjoy it.”
