Pelosi reaches out to Hispanics, picks Reyes for top intelligence spot.

For the all powerful and heavily contested House Intelligence Committee Chair, House Speker in waiting, Nancy Pelosi, picks Rep. Sylvestre Reyes, a Hispanic House member. Here is how Reyes is described: "Border-Patrol-agent-turned-congressman" and a "Purple Heart winner who was drafted into the Army and served during 1966-68 as a helicopter crew chief and gunner. His service included 13 months in Vietnam." I do not know more about the nominee, but I wonder if Nancy Pelosi wanted to reach out to Hispanics to deflect the accolades Republicans recieved for picking Senator Martinez to lead the RNC.
