In 1892, Harding traveled to Washington, where he met Democratic Nebraska Congressman William Jennings Bryan , and listened to the "Boy Orator of the Platte" speak on the floor of the House of Representatives.

Democrats generally won Marion County's offices; when Harding ran for auditor in 1895, he lost, but did better than expected.

ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (Michel Gondry, US, 2004) THEMES: MEMORY; MEMORY LOSS; DREAMS; LOVE RELATIONSHIPS. Murray Bowen, a pioneer of couples therapy, defied convention by purposely stopping couples from talking to each other during sessions.
