Nancy Pelosi's attempt to pack the House leadership positions w/her cronies such as Murtha has failed.
Although some like Murtha's anti-war stance, I see him as too closely tied to old-school backroom pork deals. In my book, this makes him very UNLIKELY towant to change how Congress does business. That and his ties to the Arabscam scandal (though he was not charged with any wrong-doing).
This past election was about changing how things are done in DC. I hope Speaker Pelosi truly realizes that.
