Leader DeWeese? No, No, No, No, No

According to PolitickerPA ("DeWeese indicates he's still eyeing leadership," by Alex Roarty 11/05), current Majority Leader Bill DeWeese, who on Tuesday managed to retain his state house seat, is interested in maintaining his leadership position.

This is a bad, bad idea. Really bad. Seriously. Bad. Mr. DeWeese may be a wonderful state representative for his district but it would be difficult to believe there is a serious reform mindset in the Democratic caucus if he is the elected leader of that group. As has been said, you cannot put new wine in old wineskins.

While I am opinionating, let me say that I think Dennis O'Brien has been a fine Speaker of the House, and should be kept on.
