Harman/Hastings: Pelosi starting to weaken?

A straw in the wind.
A Post piece today touching on Harman/Hastings has this nugget:
One alternative, according to a senior Democratic staff member who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak for his boss, would be for Pelosi to give Harman the chairmanship of an intelligence panel subcommittee, rather than just dropping her from the committee.
Sidney enjoyed some good lovin' this morning on the strength of that, I reckon!
It's a crazy idea that Harman will tell Pelosi to shove: being demoted to be under Hastings - don't go there... - is far worse than simply being kicked off the committee. But it's clearly a concession.
Could the Blue Dogs be sensing that din-dins will not be long in arriving?
