A Cynical Blast

Former U.S. Senator Tom Daschle used intemperate language in criticizing Republicans for making plans to contest the Senate seat held by Tim Johnson, but this is nothing more than base cynicism.

All decent people wish the Best for Sen. Johnson, who has not been able to work since suffering a brain hemorrhage last year, but that does not mean that it is inappropriate to make plans to fill the seat when it comes up for re-election next year. One hopes that Sen. Johnson improves sufficiently to return to work and make a serious run to hold his position, but in the event he does not capable Democrats and Republicans should be prepared to enter the race.
