President Daschle?

It is being reported that former Senator and former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle is considering a run for president in 2008.

Maybe I’m crazy... but I don’t think he’s got a chance then. While he would likely be a more popular and less hated Democrat candidate when compared with Hillary... I suspect he’s been out of the public eye for too long for people to really take him seriously.

I always was of the opinion that had Daschle run in 2004 he likely would have received the nomination from the Democrats, after all, back then Daschle was quite well known, even if as an obstructionist... now he’s just a man who couldn’t even hold on to his position of power and Senate seat in 2004.

Besides, the last thing South Dakota needs is another McGovern where the candidate from our state not only loses by a wide margin, but also doesn’t even carry their home state.
