Most people know that Amanda Knox — "Foxy Knoxy" — is the pretty American student who was arrested and found guilty of the stabbing death of her British roommate in Italy, during a "sex game" gone wrong , when the pair were on study-abroad programs several years ago. Unfortunately, a far smaller number of people know that Knox was probably completely innocent of the crime; that another man was successfully convicted of the murder; and that NONE of the evidence — blood, DNA, or witnesses — ever really pointed to Knox. Knox was initially convicted.

Nixon mentioned the rally sign in his victory speech, adopting the phrase as representing his administration's initial goal—to reunify the bitterly divided country. Nixon invited Cole and her family to the presidential inauguration , and she appeared on a float in the inaugural parade pictured. The phrase "Bring Us Together" was used ironically by Democrats when Nixon proposed policies with which they disagreed.
