25. Maybe

I think that he's pretty good at what he does for the most part. After Daschle was defeated in 2004, he did a good job rallying the Democrats in the Senate against Bush's Social Security scheming. The main problem is that he is still responding to how things used to be only a few years ago. However, the Republicans have rapidly (de-)volved since then and I don't think him and most of the "old school" Democrats have been able and/or willing to adapt to match them blow-for-blow. The Democrats in the Senate really need to take a an hour or two sometime soon (maybe Joe B. can attend too?) for a good old-fashioned "huddle" to try to come up with some kind of strategy to break the Republican chokehold they have on the Senate and/or figure out some way to make the Republicans pay an increasingly expensive price for their tactics.
