    ... she's a once-ambitious politician that finds herself a) on the wrong committee, and b) unable to put party over personal relationships. While it is generally excusable for a Dem not to rock the boat with incumbents in neighboring districts in the interest of bi-partisan politics, it is not okay to vie to head the committee to turn red seats blue, then refuse to help viable Dem challengers in those neighboring districts.

    If Wasserman-Schultz expects to take a leadership role on this committee, she needs to have the intestinal fortitude to tell her Republican colleagues, "It's nothing personal, it's just politics," and then get on with the job she's been tasked with. Otherwise, there are lots of other committees where this all would never really be an issue for her.
