The battle for the post of majority leader in a Democratically controlled House would most likely be between Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.). Sources believe that Hoyer can contain the Murtha insurgency, though it is marked as a battle to watch.A couple of problems with that:
1. The democrats won't take the House.
2. Murtha won't be there.
