I rooted for Murtha because of his war stance, but Steny won. Good for him...Arianna:
It bodes well for Pelosi that was willing to spend her political capital right off the bat -- especially on the issue that will define her time at the helm. Far too many modern politicians save theirpolitical capital until it's lost all its value.
