What about:

vector = Range[5]; 
MatrixForm[vector, TableDirections -> Row] 

(1	2	3	4	5 )

Group:

I'm trying to understand the *reasoning* behind Mathematica's treatment of
lists, rows and columns. Basically, I feel like I'm in a weird place---
I get what's going on well enough to translate various econometric
examples, but I wouldn't be able to clearly explain Mathematica's behavior
to
someone previously exposed to matrix programming in Gauss, SAS IML,
etc.

Can someone explain why a list does not display in MatrixForm as a
row?---It's ok if the answer is computer sciency. I'll take some advil
before I attempt to digest any answers. :)
