The "Republican Revolution" with its "Contract with America" took place in the 1994 congressional elections, not in 1996 (when Bill Clinton got re-elected, and thus defied the victory won by the republicans two years earlier).

I remember staying up all night to see the results during those elections, and celebrating the Republican victory :)

...and, Newt Gingrich was elected speaker of the House of Representatives, not the Senate (الشيوخ)

Your point is well taken but the issue in question is about the advent of the neo conservatives and not about the year or about naming. She says that the neo conservatives arrived in 2000 and I'm saying that they arrived much earlier than that, something like in the mid nineties. Lamis by the way is an acquaintance of mine and she will understand where I'm coming from.
