Re-linking bits from Drudge is usually fairly tedious for readers and pointless for circulation, but it seems this Insight article is noteworthy enough to break my general rule, especially with all the bipartisan kissy face going on right now. The meat of it:
Democratic Party sources said as House Speaker, Ms. Pelosi plans to block moves that would place hawks into important chairmanships. The sources said a key casualty would be Rep. Jane Harman, a six-term member of Congress who has cooperated with Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.
“Nancy Pelosi wants total party discipline,” a source in the Democratic Party leadership said. “If you played ball with the Republicans during this session, then you’re not going to be given an important chair in the next session.”
An anonymous source may prove inaccurate, but if not, it looks like the post-election lovefest isn’t going to make it out of the Democratic Party never mind across the aisle.
