Wolf Blitzer tried to pin down Jack Murtha over losing out to Steney Hoyer in the race for House Majority Leader this evening. Transcript by me follows…
Blitzer: Any hard feelings over Steney Hoyer becoming Majority Leader…your losing the position?
Murtha: Well, we’ll keep working where we are trying to get this war out of the way. That’s all over and now we’re working trying to get the troops redeployed.
Blitzer: We saw that photo-op when he started to speak you sort of walked away…there was some interpretation you were irritated. Are you still irritated?
Murtha: Well let me tell you Wolf, you want to talk about Iraq? I’m glad to talk about it…uh..I..I’m going to work with Nancy…work with the majority tyring to get our troops home as soon as possible.
Blitzer: You don’t want to talk about working with Steney Hoyer?
