    Majority and Minority leaders pick. The Chairs of the standing committees are virtually automatic. Given that Rockefeller's on, we lose if Pelosi names any enablers.

      it is highly likely that Reid will put her on conference. You know damn well he won't put Dodd or Feingold on the conference.

        Come on, Reid's picking the Senators on the committee? Based on all his other actions on this bill, you can guarantee there won't be a single anti-immunity vote selected. All the Republicans from both house and senate will be pro-immunity. That'll leave, what, a handful of house Dems to try and keep it out of the final bill? Yeah, like that'll happen...
