I think Sen. Patty Murray’s time has come. She’ll be taking over the gavel of the Budget Committee from Kent Conrad in January, and she just presided over the reelection of every Democratic incumbent as chairwoman of the DSCC. She’ll also have a bunch of new women to work with who she recruited and helped win election: Mazie Hirono, Heidi Heitkamp, Elizabeth Warren, and Tammy Baldwin. A lot of people are indebted to Sen. Murray and she is carrying a lot of water. Her counterpart in the House, the zombie-eyed granny starver Paul Ryan, is going to have his hands full.
