The next majority leader
Update: That was fast, in about an hour, the apparent Dreier leapfrog is being shot down. Missouri's own Roy "Smoke 'em if you got 'em" Blunt is pushing to ascend from number 3 in the House to number 2. Huzzah! Blunt is not known as well dressed, but does like his chickens laced with antibiotic resistant bacteria, which is something. It looks like CBS is the source of this rumor, and they may be referring only to a temporary ascension until the Republicans caucus and pick the Hastert backed Dreier.
