With Rep. Charles Rangel temporarily stepping aside as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, who’s next in line?

The next most senior Democrats are Rep. Pete Stark of California and Rep. Sander Levin of Michigan.

Chuck Todd of NBC reported that if Rangel temporarily steps aside, as he did this morning, Stark will take over, but “if it’s a longer term deal, expect Levin to get it.”
