Babs Lee Runs Black Caucus

See what happens when you pick a winner? East Bay congresswoman Barbara Lee has been tapped to head the 43-member Congressional Black Caucus, giving her considerable clout in the new Congress next year. The Chron reports that Lee will use her new position to fight AIDS in the Third World and try to get out of Iraq. Unlike most senior members of the caucus, Lee backed Barack Obama early in the primaries; now she’s gotten her reward.
