So, vas nu?

Former Senator Tom Daschle has set a timeline for a potential run for president.
Tom Daschle, former U.S. senator from South Dakota, says he will make a decision whether to run for the Democratic nomination for president within six months.

A bipartisan slate of U.S. senators led by Jews from each party asked President Bush to urge Saudi Arabia to cancel a meeting on an Israel boycott.[...]
