On Rangel

Put this down as just a ‘feel’ for what’s going on — this is not based on independent reporting. But in our editorial chat just now David Kurtz said: “You get the strong sense that the leadership, the ethics committee and his own lawyers all know what’s best for Charlie –Charlie himself is only one who doesn’t know and probably has been cocooned for so long that he can’t know what the smart move is.” That’s speculation. But I suspect David is right.
