More Hoyer

With regard to this morning’s snark against Steny Hoyer, I should say I’ve gotten some pushback from Hill folks who say the media is straining to find intra-caucus divisions (“Democrats in disarray,” don’tcha know) rather than legislative leaders simply doing the job correctly by keeping the lines of communication open with the other side. We’ll see; Hoyer’s record makes me skeptical, but it’s true that one shouldn’t leap to conclusions.
