The Image of the Dems

July 6, 2010

It isn’t Obama who is a failure but it is:

RANGEL’S FALL: Larry Margasak in the Associated Press on how New York Congressman Charlie Rangel lost his clout in the House: “Just about everyone likes Charlie Rangel. Republicans pump his hand, Democrats put their arms around his shoulders and women of all political persuasions give him pecks on the cheek. Spend some time with the 80-year-old congressman from New York City who’s been striding the Capitol’s halls for four decades on behalf of residents of Harlem, and there’s little
evidence he’s become someone to avoid because of an ethics cloud that’s more likely than not going to darken in days to come.
“Behind the scenes, it’s a different story. A few Democrats have returned money that Rangel raised for them. His influence is sapped.”
