We’ve frequently bashed Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle in the past, because, frankly, it’s easy and fun. But we were happy to see this quote from him in the Washington Post:
“We all ought to recognize the military option ought to be the last option, but it ought to be a real option,” Senate Majority Leader Thomas A. Daschle (D-S.D.) said after today’s meeting. “There is a great deal of support for pressing Iraq to open its borders and destroy its weapons.”
Daschle, who previously has expressed reservations about the White House’s Iraq policy, predicted the resolution will pass with “strong bipartisan support,” perhaps by early October.
