In today’s Globe, some criticism of the House leadership from a quarter I did not expect:
“If the Red Sox came in and lost every game of the year and they kept the manager at the end of the year, that’s a problem,” US Representative Michael Capuano said in an interview. “That’s what we seem to be on the verge of doing.”
“The thing that amazes me is the hubris, that no one has stepped aside voluntarily,” Capuano said. He said he supported Pelosi, but because she had been demonized during the election she would have difficulty recruiting candidates in places where Democrats lost last week.
So reading these tea leaves: Cap is ready to leave the House and take on Scott Brown in 2012.
(P.S. I’m for both of them–Pelosi & Capuano.)
