DASHCLE: "MY 'PASSION' IS IN THE SENATE"
In a surprise announcement in Washington, D.C. this morning, South Dakota Senator Tom Dashcle has stated that he is not going to run for the office of President of the United States. When he was in South Dakota this past weekend, he was asked by the press about a possible run. Dashcle replied that he was leaning toward a run for the Chief Excecutive Office.
It is not known just what changed his mind about this possibility. When asked this Dashcle replied that he and his family had just made up thier mind in the last 24 hours. It's not as if there aren't plenty of other candidates to take up the Democratic mantle. This afternoon, Dashcle unvieled his "leadership team". Among the members is former first lady, and current Senator, Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) who some are looking at as another possible Presidential candidate.
Speculation as to what Dashcle will do in 2004 still looms. Some reason that a run another term in the Senate is most likely. It would be his 4th term. No Senator from South Dakota has served 4 full terms. Besides Dashcle only 3 others Senators have been elected to 3 terms. Those being Peter Norbeck, Karl Mundt,(both Republicans) and Democrat George McGovern, a man that Dashcle has been compared to, often in complementary tems.
