Of course, there’s still the small matter of House majority leader. Gingrich pal Dick Armey is looking increasingly vulnerable next to football star Steve Largent (R-Okla.), favorite of the conservative class of 1994. As if that weren’t competition enough, Reps. Jennifer Dunn of Washington and Dennis Hastert of Illinois were also said to be considering leaping into the fray. Hastert is a good friend of Tom DeLay, the House whip who has emerged as something of a kingmaker in the post-Gingrich era; DeLay has remained deafeningly silent on the majority leadership up until now. Dick Armey isn’t dead yet, but he isn’t going anywhere either. Looks as if the GOP will get its mudfight after all.
