One link above a U.S. electoral map announces: “Looking Ahead: 2002 in Your State.” Check “Illlinois” and Hynes jumps out at you. Click the arrow at “Tom’s Team New Members,” and you’ll get one name only: “Dan Hynes (IL).” A separate box announces: “The future of the Senate and House begins with our DASHPAC Democratic Leadership. Click here for Tom’s Team’s new members.” Click as instructed and the same single name pops up: Dan Hynes. Daschle calls him “one of the state’s rising young stars” who “successfully implemented an ambitious agenda emphasizing taxpayer advocacy, administrative efficiency and innovative fiscal policy” — hey Tom, that’s what state comptrollers do!
“Hynes is probably the only one who gave Daschle’s PAC any money,” a staffer for the senator explains. “Why should he promote someone who isn’t going to help him promote the party? That takes money.”
A bigger question is why anyone would want to appear on Daschle’s cheesy website, which is riddled with misspellings and hyperlinks to nowhere. “Maybe if people supported the PAC with larger donations, we could upgrade it,” the Daschle guy says. “It’s a volunteer-only run site.” Campaign website reform, anyone?

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
