AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 1/06/2005 09:44:00 AM ----- BODY: Advice from Noonan - Peggy Noonan has some good advice for the Democrats. Given what's going to happen today during the election certification, I have a candidate for a Sister Souljah moment. If Sen. Barbara Boxer does go through with her plans, it weakens Harry Reid already. It's already been reported that he tried to talk her out of it and was upset, so having it happen will show he lost his first big battle - against a senator from his own party. This shows just how damaging the defeat of Tom Daschle was to the Democrats. If he were still minority leader, Boxer would stay silent during the certification. It's interesting that she's choosing to buck her own party's leadership. A sign of dissention, maybe? --------
