Tread Carefully Nancy

by Steve

I agree with Lawrence O'Donnell on this. It wasn't politically smart for Nancy Pelosi to take a public position in the Majority Leader race between Steny Hoyer and John Murtha, regardless of whether or not Murtha now has the votes to win. Pelosi would make this gaffe much worse if she pushes Jane Harman aside for the chairmanship of the House Intelligence Committee for Alcee Hastings, because: a) she would be handing a club to the GOP on ethics that Fox News and the Mighty Wurlitzer would use the next two years; and b) it would appear that Pelosi is tossing aside good judgment in favor of settling scores.
