Daschle Loses By One Vote

Republican John Thune defeated Senate Minority Leader Daschle by precisely one reluctant vote; that of the judge who had to allow election observers, cuz Daschle and his lawyers couldn't find even a single example of intimidation.

Absent that ruling, Daschle wouldda "found" just enough votes at the last minute to win.

The judge, a longtime friend and former legal counsel to Daschle(!), was openly upset at the fact that the details of the hearing on the matter were being blogged straight onto the Internet. But justice likes sunlight.
