Let The Games Begin

In the security line at Port Columbus "International" Airport. Thinking about all the ways Washington DC is about to change.

A big Democratic race to watch will be the contest between Rep. John Murtha, D-PA, and Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-MD, to be House Majority Leader. Hoyer has been a good strategist as Democratic No. 2 in the House, but Murtha will lay the claim that his opposition to the Iraq war was a real tipping point for this country and helped contribute significantly to last night’s Democratic romp. May the best man win. Could get ugly.

Then there are the machinations as to whom Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi wants to helm the House Intelligence Committee — the next in line is an impeached former judge, Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-FL.

Who won in your neck of the woods? Any surprises?
