Final Thought on Alcee Hastings

Will this be Nancy Pelosi's 'Sister Souljah' moment? I see parallels.

Will the Congressional Black Caucus be seriously alienated from Pelosi, while Pelosi benefits with 'moderates,' and commentators who oppose corrupt criminals in positions of power? Pelosi has gotten credit (sometimes begrudging) from many, and there are likely to be plenty of House Democrats who will be thankful that she protected them from the Hastings headache.

It might be that she took action soon enough for this event to be an asset for her, rather than a problem.

Back to the top.
