Calhoun, who, by the mystical means of time travel, find themselves transported to Washington, D.C., in the year 2023, where they learn of the many societal and political changes brought about by 170 years of American history. They also meet the young, vibrant, and commanding U.S. Senator, Kelsey Tate, an African American female graduate of Harvard with a law degree from Yale.
