Breaking News on CNBC.

Down goes the old bull and his anti climate change supporters.

Waxman is a true believer. He believes in fixing our climate problems and is a much better fit for the position.

Progressives may have lost the battle with Lieberman, but we won the battle over Climate Change and John Dingell as Waxman is the next Chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.

UPDATE: There is a story now on Politico.

One interesting tidbit from the article:

In a secret-ballot vote in the Cannon Caucus Room, House Democrats ratified an earlier decision by the Steering and Policy Committee to replace the 82-year-old Dingell with his 69-year-old rival. The vote was 137-122 in favor of Waxman.

UPDATE 2:

CNBC is spewing Dingell BS.  They just showed a GM chart and said, look, it's down $.70 thanks to the news about Dingell losing that just came out.

Well if you look at the chart, that just isn't true.  In the last 10 minutes, it has actually gone slightly up.

UPDATE 3:

Wow!  My first recommended list diary!  Thanks guys and gals!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
