Murtha and Hoyer look to be the front runners for the job.

Murtha:

Talk is cheap, which is why, up until Iraq forced me to, I didn't do a lot of it. But empty rhetoric is expensive. It has cost America three years in a failed war at nearly three thousand lives lost and will cost us a trillion dollars by the time we can extricate ourselves from it. Empty rhetoric has cost us years of lost time in finding a solution to our dependence on foreign oil, at a price tag that is nearly impossible to guess, but surely in the hundreds of billions.

As Kos suggests--we should all take a look at both candidates, but Murtha is very loyal to Nancy Pelosi and that's incredibly important at this point. Hoyer has repeatedly clashed with Nancy Pelosi (TNR's Tug of War reg.req) and I don't want him undermining what lies ahead for the Democrats in the upcoming days. What are your thoughts on this issue?
