POLITICS: Tom Daschle's Neighborhood

How popular is Bush in South Dakota, the state where Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle is fighting for his political life after four years of efforts to undermine and denounce Bush at every turn? Popular enough that Democratic Representative Stephanie Herseth felt the need to pledge that if the Electoral College ends in a 269-269 tie, she would vote to re-elect Bush.

Stephanie doesn't need to worry. Bush will win the EC and her vote won't be necessary.

You guys sound like Yankees fans!

I'm not from S. Dak but have lived in Callif since 1960 after having grown up in Devils Lake, N. Dak. I've asmired your work in the Senate and can not understand how you lost your senate seat. Have not read anything in the papers out here. Thanks for all you've done for this country and best wished for the future. Mary Kellhere
