New House Majority Whip?

Something else I speculated on, for a little fun that some people noticed.  A friend reminded me that John Murtha had made noise about challenging Steny Hoyer for Majority Leader, but Murtha is a Pelosi guy and after working to restore their relations after a bitter Pelosi-Hoyer leadership race in 2001, I'm not sure Pelosi would sanction that.  My friend also suggested Rahm Emmanuel, which would make sense.  He's young, energetic, savvy, and will assuredly be looking for a promotion after this cycle's performance as head of the DCCC. 10/new-house-majority-whip.html

I sure wish Murtha would challenge Hoyer--he really should be in a leadership position.  

As for Emmanuel, I agree, even if I don't always agree with his positions.
