TUNICA, MISSISSIPPI –As speaker of the House, U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn says he would be a “transitional” leader but not “custodial.”

The South Carolina Democrat says he would work to “transform” the Democratic Caucus to make the party more appealing “to young African Americans who still feel … take(n) for granted.”

“I would manage not just resources but expectations,” the Columbia lawmaker said, “manage dreams and aspirations.”

Surrounded by allies and supporters at the Congressional Black Caucus Institute’s annual policy forum in Tunica, Miss., last weekend, Clyburn spoke more frankly and openly than he had before about how he would approach the top job in the House’s leadership.
