Boolean Operators: Using the OR Operator

In this search, Liberal OR Democrat retrieves all articles containing either word, regardless of whether they appear together in the same article or not. This operator is used to get an overview of what is available before focusing more specifically on one or both topics.  It is also useful for searching for words with common synonyms or alternate spellings, such as ax OR axe. Using the OR operator will return the largest amount of articles of all the Boolean operators.
