CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE DEPARTMENT:
In a rare gesture of graciousness seldom seen among Democratic leaders in recent years - or in Washington in general for that matter - Democratic Senate Minority Leader Tom Dasche had this to say:
"Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D., said Bush deserved "great credit" for his leadership during the war and praised the work of the military. Days before the war began, Daschle had blamed Bush's failed diplomacy for making the fighting necessary and was criticized for his remarks.
"In 21 days, we eliminated somebody who for 20 years has repressed and tortured his own people and posed a serious security risk," Daschle said."
