House Republicans Lose a Leader

The news has just come out of Washington that Congressman Tom DeLay, the former Majority Leader in the U.S. House of Representatives will also now be resigning his seat in Congress and not running for re-election in the fall.

Before you do anything else, I recommend reading this exclusive Q&A with Congressman DeLay and his wife discussing his decision with TIME Magazine. I think it gives you an insightful glimpse into his mind -- and sure left me with a tremendous amount of respect for him. I can't imagine the courage it takes to be able to make a decision like this, putting the cause above himself and also being so at peace with his decision.

Regardless of how you feel about all of his policies, or even his political style, DeLay has one of the preeminent leaders and tacticians within the Republican House Majority for the past twelve years, and he will be missed.

Still, you gotta love this reaction from the Dems ... it only goes to show that once again DeLay is making a brilliant strategic move by taking away this issue from them, and guaranteeing that a Republican will maintain his seat in Congress.

I believe I heard him say on Hannity's radio program he is moving to VA and will continue to be VERY active in politics.
