Dems Defy Pelosi, Pick Hoyer Over Murtha

From Reuters:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A week after winning back control of the U.S. Congress, divided Democrats in the House defied incoming speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday and elected Steny Hoyer to be majority leader, a Democratic Party aide said.
The vote wasn't even close: 149-86. The only thing more surprising than this resounding rebuke to the new Speaker is Pelosi's stupidity in endorsing Murtha in the first place.
