Hoyer defeats Murtha for #2 Dem spot

It appears the vote was 149 to 86 in favor of Hoyer. Personally I think this was the right thing for House Democrats to do as Murtha obviously had way too much baggage. The political talk shows are trying to spin this as a loss for Nancy Pelosi but I don’t see how. Sure she put her support behind Murtha but now that he lost the debate is over. No one will give a damn come January who she supported with the exception of Murtha who will now be indebted to her and have to vote for her governmental reform legislation.

Bottom line, Hoyers victory represents a victory for the American people.
