WASHINGTON -- It's Hoyer v. Murtha in a battle for House Majority Leader.
I support both, but suspect Hoyer (D-MD), seen here with the Maryland Terrapin mascot, will win the secret ballot. He did a fine job as Whip, and really hustled during this election to support candidates, including a visit to Tucson. He'll do a good job.
Jack Murtha (D-PA) is inspiring due to his leadership on Iraq and past history. With Speaker Pelosi behind him, he may win.
Hoyer v. Murtha is not a problem for the dems, it is a healthy process. Competition is good.
