When I first heard that Murtha planned to run for majority leaderr, I thought it was a joke, but evidently it is for real. I can’t help but wonder how much of the grandstanding he has done over the past year, both during unveiling his “cut and run” plan and declaring U.S. troops cold-blooded killers, was done more out of political posturing than conviction. I still don’t think Democrats have a great chance of regaining their majority in the House, but the elections are still five months from now and in politics that is an eternity. I guess anything is possible. Is attacking the military really the best way, though, to run for majority leader? Maybe it is on the Democrat side of the aisle.
