Bob Edwards Talks To Congressman David Bonior,

a Democrat from Michigan, who could become Majority Leader, if his party wins back control of the House in next Tuesday's election. As Minority Whip in the 104th Congress, Bonior is in line for the number two leadership position behind Congressman Dick Gephardt. However, even if Democrats do gain a majority, Bonior may not become Majority Leader, because some members of his party consider him too liberal and plan to challenge him.
