That Daschle ad

From NBC's Abby Livingston

Tom Daschle is proving Mel Brooks' theory, "We mock what we are to be."

As first reported by First Read on Sunday, we learned of the existence of a 1986 Daschle for Senate campaign ad called "Old Car," which we dug up for NBC Nightly News last night. (Watch a clip in NBC's Chuck Todd's piece on Nightly News last night.)

The ad features a young Daschle driving around Washington in a beat up car, thumbing his nose at the Washington establishment, most notably those who drive expensive cars, or worse, are chauffeured.
