He will have plenty of time to meet voters and talk about his ideas about getting America back on course, once he is the party nominee,” said the on-message adviser.p> A DASCHLE OF INTEGRITY br> Democrats last week grew angry — again — at Senate minority leader Tom Daschle for his decision to let two Bush nominees slip through committee holds for a full vote of the Senate.
