While minorities are the new majority in the City Council, the Daily News' Adam Lisberg believes Speaker Christine Quinn will keep her leadership position: "When Quinn gave her late and grudging endorsement to city Controller William Thompson's mayoral campaign, reporters went running to [Councilwoman Letitia] James for what was sure to be an incendiary quote - but heard her praise Quinn instead. 'An endorsement is an endorsement,' James said." Apparently James and other Council members realize they should "cut deals with Quinn, because the speaker isn't going anywhere" and the "members who had seen their names floated as potential speakers are now talking with Quinn about getting leadership roles or powerful committees." As for Charles Barron's shot at being speaker, it's suspected he'll just get one vote.
