Tom Daschle is looking increasingly like a presidential candidate. He pointed to his age (55) and good health as positives should he decide to run for the White House.

Trent Lott is stepping down as majority leader, but will remain a senator from Mississippi. I feel terribly sorry for him. No one deserves to be treated like this for a few offhand, impromptu comments flattering an old man on his 100th birthday. While Lott needed to step down from a purely political standpoint,...

Listen to some of the things Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) said in public today: “We’ve got to ask, why is this man (Osama bin Laden) so popular around the world?,” said Murray, who faces re-election in 2004. “Why are people so supportive of him in many countries … that are riddled with poverty?” “He’s...

PoliPundit Attends an Actual “Diversity” Class I work for a very prominent high-tech firm here in Washington state (I’m sure you can guess which one.) This company has always been a hard-core meritocracy, but of late they’ve been getting hit with bogus “discrimination” lawsuits by former employees. As a result, all our managers have...

More on how Senator Bill Frist is playing the Lott situation to maximum advantage: Frist, the Tennessee Republican, is the sought, not the seeker. He is the sober phenom who is not seen as angling for the position (like Don Nickles), unready for it (Rick Santorum) or desperate for it (Lott). He is taking...

Now that Gore’s dropped out of the 2004 presidential race, it’s looking increasingly likely that Tom Daschle will run for president in 2004. The succession fight for Daschle’s leadership position in the Senate has already begun between Senators Chris Dodd (D-CT) and Harry Reid (D-NV.) Neither of these gentlemen are in Daschle’s league. Imagine...
