Is it purely a game of partisan politics? Or do Democrats/Pelsoi think he is innocent?~What do you think?
From Washington Examiner Op ED: "Anything Pelosi does will make many House Democrats mad, and some of the possible replacements could prove embarrassing at election time 2010. From her point of view, it’s better to hope that the ethics committee investigation of Rangel can take up most of the time between now and November 2010, and that Rangel might make things easier on everyone by announcing he’s not seeking reelection after 40 years of service in the House. "
Do you agree?

Well, since we are talking politics, I think it's all about power and control. And I also think there may be some stuff that they all know about each other that would peel the wallpaper off the power room walls. They really need to keep the very far left, and him being in a compromising position really works for Pelosi, since she can lend support that otherwise wouldn't be there if he happened to not agree with her on certain issues.
Doesn't speak well of her ability to drain the swamp of corruption though, does it? Guess that's one promise that she never intended to keep.
