The Return of The Fighting 51st

The man who gave the Democrats their majority in the Senate is returning to public life.

From Talking Points Memo:
Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD), who has been recovering from a brain hemmorhage suffered in December, will make his first public appearance on August 28th, speaking at an event entitled "Thank You, South Dakota." Tim Johnson's staff still will not confirm if he is running for re-election, but if he chooses to run he already has a significant war chest to tap into. Many of his colleagues helped fundraise for him during his recovery, especially Max Baucus from neighboring Montana, who is also up for re-election in 2008.
I disagree with Sen. Johnson on many issues, but if the rest of the DC democrats had demonstrated just a fraction of Sen. Johnson's fighting spirit, the party and the nation would be in a much stronger position today.
