Daschle Filibuster Blocks His Departure from Senate
(2004-11-20) -- The departure from the U.S. Senate of former minority leader Tom Daschle, D-SD, was blocked for a short time Friday when the Senator, who lost his re-election bid to John Thune, refused to yield the floor.
"Sen. Daschle began to filibuster his own retirement," said one unnamed Senate aide. "It was a touching moment, recalling his legacy of blocking Bush-appointed judicial nominees."
Upon hearing of the filibuster, Republicans and Democrats returned to the largely empty chamber and quickly invoked cloture on a vote of 99-to-1.
As he left the Senate chamber for the last time, Mr. Daschle hailed his own accomplishment of bringing the two parties together for that final vote.
