Senate Democrats are in need of a new leader ...

... it's the least they could do for Kerry to give him the job. He can continue to fight on. Interesting how his name didn't even come up as a consideration and this was the party's choice to lead the nation?

The reason is simple, Evie: To serve as the Senate (shrinking) Minority Leader, the Democrats must have a Daschle-type person; that is, one who can appear at a casual look to be not shrill or blatantly partisan so as to appeal to the average person, but who can work behind the scenes to torpedo the Republicans at every turn, as Daschle did with the Jim Jeffords defection in 2001, for example.

John Kerry simply is not that type of Democrat. I fully expect him to do an Al Gore in the coming months and become shriller, more wild-eyed and more crazed - thereby perfectly matching what the mainstream of the Democrat Party will do...

No that isn't gloating...

Gloating is of course bad -- coarse, heartless, insensitive, and ill-mannered. Magnanimity in victory, that's the thing. Humility, grace, gentlemanly forbearance, there but for the grace of God...

It was extremely enjoyable to see the Tennessee Senator and Majority Leader (now "Big-Majority Leader") Bill Frist, thank Tom Daschle for his service as Minority Leader -- and happily bid him farewell and good riddance!


We told you so but you wouldn't listen and just kept your heads in the sand and avoided reality.

That is gloating and deserved.

Now you know the difference (or should).
