Nooooo! He's back. Tom Daschle attempts to rise from the political grave!
Just like one of those movie monsters, Tom Daschle is apparently back. And this time, he's going after bigger game. From the Argus Leader:
Former South Dakota Sen. Tom Daschle is weighing the possibility of running for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.Read it all here. Oh for god's sake. Nobody's buying the "no plans to run for national office" routine. Why doesn't he just say he's running and get it over with.
"I have received a lot of encouragement," Daschle said in an email today to the Argus Leader.
Daschle didn't rule out the possibility of an official announcement in the near future. But for now, he said, he has no plans to run for national office.
In his email, Daschle said the primary factors in his decision "would be my family and our mutual decision to consider the rigors of a campaign and reentry into public life."
