Pelosi Splits Democrats With Push For Murtha

WaPo A showdown over the House majority leader's post today has Democrats bitterly divided only a week after their party took control of Congress and has prompted numerous complaints that Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and her allies are using strong-arm tactics and threats to try to elect Rep. John P. Murtha (Pa.) to the job.

Maybe the mistake is in electing Nanci Pelosi to be Speaker. If the Dems are going to have a snowball's chance in hell of holding both houses they need to elect centrists to their leadership positions, so perhaps Steny Hoyer should be Speaker.
