I don't like John Dingell, but I like Henry Waxman even less. The Dems voted today to replace Dingell as Chairman (not Chair, not Chairperson) of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. Dingell is a hard-core unionist lefty, but he could always be counted on to weigh the impact of runaway environmental legislation on jobs and the economy. Waxman is a hard core lefty...and a preening bantam cock of a fellow. Few members of Congress get me more worked up than Waxman. His ascendence is a sign that Pelosi may be more powerful than I'd hoped.
