Hoyer's Future

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's earlier decision to seek to lead her party into the minority puts her top underling, Steny Hoyer (D-MD), in a tough position.

Hoyer "announced he is 'exploring' a bid for minority whip, a post he held before Democrats won the majority in 2006," Politico reports -- but Jim Clyburn (D-SC), currently majority whip, has already said he will seek the same position. Given Clyburn's support among the Congressional Black Caucus, most of whom held their seats, Hoyer's path to victory could be difficult, potentially putting him out of the leadership for the first time sine 2003.
