Tom Sure Knows How to Pick 'Em

New Jersey Times.Com reports:

In what may be the strangest twist yet in a bizarre election year, New Jersey Democratic leaders last night chose Lautenberg as their standard bearer on the insistence of Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, the same Tom Daschle who last week came to Trenton to lead an emotional rally aimed at rekindling Torricelli's sinking re-election campaign. The choice was, said one Democrat, "Lautenberg or nothing."

So Tom Daschle, who is from South Dakota, dictated who would replace Mr. Torricelli on the New Jersey ballot.

And this is all supposed to be about the "rights of New Jersey voters."
