Democrats to Run Against William Howard Taft in 2010

Washington, D.C.--Congressional Democrats, whose policies have proven unpopular and deeply divisive, have decided they will campaign in 2010 against William Howard Taft, who left office in 1913.

"We're still living with the devastating legacy of our twenty-seventh president," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, "and we Democrats stand for change."

"Look, America was saddled with the Payne-Aldrich Tariff Act of 1909 for many years before we Democrats took over," said Chris Van Hollen, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "And it's going to take a lot more time for us to overcome the lingering effects of former Attorney General George W. Wickersham's tenure."
