Hoyer wins: A wise decision

Although luckily Steny Hoyer won (149-86); I do find it odd given the margin of victory that John Murtha claimed to have the votes last night on Hardball. Either it was just a strategic ploy, alternatively he really can't count votes, or just Democratic Representatives were afraid to openly voice their opposition to his candidacy. Unfortunately, I think it is the latter and not either of the former options, which may be an insight into the hardnosed tactics that Pelosi is willing to employ to get her way and the level of fear in the Democratic Caucus in openly defying her.
