When Did He Ever Stop?

When Tom Daschle (S.D.) was the Senate Democratic leader, Republicans on Capitol Hill often marveled that he never stopped campaigning or suspended partisan politics to take a statesmanlike approach to the business of the country. Proof that this approach backfired came in the 2004 elections, when Daschle was defeated by Sen. John Thune (R.-S.D.).

But Daschle is still at it. The Boston Globe reported last Thursday that Daschle is starting a new group to attack all Republican senators all the time. "The Senate Majority Project is to formally launch today," said the Globe, "with Daschle and other Democrats looking to bring in more than $2 million to collect and disseminate political information critical of all GOP senators, not just the handful of vulnerable incumbents whom Democrats have targeted this year."
