Dependencies

Usage Notes
-----------

To return the total number of entries for each of these two terms:

* Bill Clinton
* George Bush

Specify this as the term: "Bill Clinton", "George Bush"

Which return 2 fields in the report:

* Bill Clinton: 854,554,545
* George Bush: 765,345,434

If you want all results that match those terms:
