Pelosi ‘will ensure’ Murtha win, Murtha ally says (Josephine Hearn, 11/13/06, The Hill)
House Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will ensure that Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) wins his race for majority leader, a key Murtha ally said Monday night.
“She will ensure that they [the Murtha camp] win. This is hard-ball politics,” said Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), a longtime Murtha supporter. “We are entering an era where when the Speaker instructs you what to do, you do it.”
Time to put away childish things, like the notion they’ll run the institution cleanly.
