Pelosi Got It Right

In a decision that could roil Democratic unity in the new House, Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi passed over Rep. Alcee Hastings Tuesday for the chairmanship of the Intelligence Committee.

Hastings, currently the No. 2 Democrat on the panel, had been aggressively making a case for the top position, supported by members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

If there are political repercussions from the Black Caucus about this, they may want to consider that this is in reality the right position if they hope to keep Dems in the majority.
