U.S. News & World Report;10/5/92, Vol. 113 Issue 13, p23
Speculates if leaders in both houses can muster enough votes to override George Bush's anticipated veto of the bill allowing regulation of cable television, it would end his string of consecutive successful vetoes at 32, two more than Lyndon Johnson's record. Bush vetoed the family-leave bill last week, but the Senate overrode the veto and sent it to the House, where a two-thirds majority for an override seems unlikely.
