Debbie Wasserman Schultz skipped for leadership post

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was in the running to serve as chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, but lost out to New York Dem Steve Israel.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the move today: "Congressman Israel knows how to win in tough districts. He replaced a formidable Republican incumbent in 2000 and has worked every day since then to strengthen Democrats across the country," Pelosi said.

Dems had said Israel, a close ally of Pelosi's, had been considered the frontrunner for the job, which entails helping Democrats defend their seats -- and try to pick up a few more in 2012, after a battery of losses this year.

Not surprising that the vapid lap dog for Pelosi who would spew out rote Dem talking points without taking a breath, would be considered inferior for any true leadership position.

Just Deserts....So much for being Pelosi's pet, I hope she realizes that she should be humble and think for herself and her country before her Dem party and its Grandmaster Pelosi...
