Murray to leadership position

According to Daily Kos, Patty Murray has secured a leadership position in the Senate:
Patty Murray, Secretary of the Conference

As Secretary of the Conference, Senator Murray will play a critical role in helping shape and set the Democratic agenda.
I was just watching Murray speak on CNN, and she pointed out some of the issues that have been neglected by the Republican Congress, like financial aid for college students and making sure veterans have adequate services.

Change is good. All of the Democrats were emphasizing that it's time to represent the people who sent them there. Easier said than done, of course, but if they stick to that as a guiding principle things will be much improved.
