Daschle Descending: Looking More Like The Final, Hideous Crackup May Be Coming

It's not just that Tom Daschle is now trailing John Thune by 3%. That's not good for the incumbent, but it's within the poll's margin of error.

The really disturbing aspect of the Senator's position is that he seems to be decompensating just when he needs all his best personal resources. He's essentially refusing to debate. Who but a fool would do that in his position? He's been hugging Mr. Bush in his ads. Who could believe that his role as Senate Minority leader and Bush-Basher-In-Chief has not been noted by South Dakota voters? Is there "Daschle fatigue" in South Dakota? From the Washington Post's (! - again - !) telling, it's beginning to look more like "Daschle embarrassment."

And then, of course, there's John Kerry.
