Dan Boren's not supporting Pelosi

Dan Boren, who just appeared on Greta, announced that he will not support Nancy Pelosi in her bid for House Minority Leader. Boren was one of the few Blue Dogs to win reelection. He represents Oklahoma's second, Sen. Tom Coburn's former seat. Oklahoma's second is a district that heavily favors the GOP, but Boren's independence and social conservatism have enabled him to retain this seat since 2005.

Boren also mentioned the importance of bipartisanship in the upcoming session of congress, one that will be dominated by gridlock between House Republicans and President Obama. His hawkish fiscal conservatism, by Democratic standards, certainly seems fantastic, even to those on the right in terms of fiscal issues.
