Daschle Descending IV

The South Dakota Rapid City Journal reports:

Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., on Thursday praised the Bush administration's war and nation-building work in Iraq and said he has no serious concerns about the lack of weapons of mass destruction. Daschle told state chamber of commerce representatives meeting in the South Dakota capital that he is satisfied with the way things are going in Iraq. "I give the effort overall real credit," Daschle said. "It is a good thing Saddam Hussein is no longer in power. It is a good thing we are democratizing the country." He said he is not upset about the debate over pre-war intelligence on weapons of mass destruction.

With the leader of Senate Democrats taking this position in public, what are the likely answers to the following questions:

1. How well do smarter Democrats around the country think savaging the President over Iraq and WMD is going to play in the fall campaign?

2. How much trouble does Senator Daschle think his past Washington shenanigans have caused for his re-election chances?

3. Are South Dakota voters so dim that they won't see through Senator Daschle's silly ploy? Does Senator Daschle think they are?

4. Is John Kerry happy that Senator Daschle has said these things?

5. Will Senator Daschle's statements be quoted in the forthcoming Presidential candidate debates and Bush campaign ads?

Just asking!!!

HINT for all questions: No points will be awarded for any correct answer.
