Big – really big – because they say so!

“Holy Crap,” declared veteran progressive political observer Joshua Marshall. Guess thatsums it up. The news he was reacting to was reported this way by his site, TPM:

This is big, big, big. In a victory for the Democratic left, Rep. Henry Waxman has just successfully ousted Rep. John Dingell from his longtime perch as head of the Energy and Commerce Committee.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office confirms to us the vote count in the Democratic Caucus moments ago: Waxman 137 votes, Dingell 122 votes.

The defeat of Dingell is a major victory for environmentalists, removing a key obstacle to real energy reform just as a Democrat with climate change high on his agenda takes the Presidency.

Sounds good to me. Now if you wondering why I’m not jumping and cheering with the othe savvy liberals, it’s because I’m not savvy. I just don’t follow this stuff that closely. But as I sau, sounds good. 😉
