Synopsis : In a country that is evenly divided politically, every vote counts-and never more so than in the 2002 U.S. Senate race in Minnesota. In this state, politics is taken very seriously, and voter turnout is well above the national average. In one of six close contests that will dictate the majority in the Senate, incumbent Democrat Paul Wellstone takes on Republican Norm Coleman, handpicked by Dick Cheney and supported by the White House. The candidates have been neck and neck for fifteen months when Wellstone begins to pull ahead, in part because of his vote against George Bush's resolution to go to war in Iraq. Days before the election, however, Wellstone's campaign plane crashes, killing the senator, his wife, daughter and three staffers. After a period of mourning, the Democrats recruit former Vice-President Walter Mondale to take Wellstone's place, and President George Bush makes his fourth visit to stump for Coleman two days before the election. In The Green Bus v. The White House, politics as usual gets turned on its head, as the legacy of Wellstone casts a shadow over the campaign. Rumors of a Republican conspiracy are countered with accusations that the memorial has become a political rally for the Democrats. As members of the two major parties exchange blows, the Independent and Green candidates fight to have a voice in the process. And in the midst of grief and battles over absentee ballots, Minnesota struggles to prove it is not another Florida.
