Roll Call

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) is probably the best politician in Congress. While Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) deserves high praise for holding her party together on some very difficult issues, it was Hoyer who helped seal the final legislative deals that spelled the margins of victory. He is well-attuned to the political wants and needs of his moderate and conservative Members, and they in turn trust and respect his leadership skills.

The Hill

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) is the most partisan Democrat in the House, while her deputy, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), is one of the most bipartisan lawmakers in the lower chamber, according to a survey conducted by The Hill.
