House Democrats to pick leaders today

House of Representatives Democrats plan to pick leaders in a closed-door caucus Thursday, and only one new face is expected to emerge.

New York Rep. Joseph Crowley is expected to become vice chairman of the caucus, as Rep. Xavier Becerra of California moves up to become chairman, the fourth-ranking leadership member. Current Chairman John Larson of Connecticut is term-limited and has to step down.

Crowley, 50, is known as a moderate, and becomes an up and coming member to watch. The three top spots are seen as remaining the same--House Demoratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland and ?Assistant Minority Leader Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina.
