Let me be the first to make this prediction.

In 2012 Nancy Pelosi will be Speaker of the house again. Also, Harry Reid will be Minority leader in the Senate.

Remember you heard it here first.



I hope you are right, but think that the Republicans will lie and distort to make it look like the failures are those of Obama and the Dems. The Reps are incredibly good at this, and cannot be underestimated.

@Advocate,
I have no problem with O'Donnell, but that witch Pelosi has given the entire country a lifetime of problems.

Burn her!

@H2O MAN,
Nancy is a great American patriot. Generations will look back at gratitude to her for her work passing such important legislation as HC and financial reform.

No she isn't.

Kick her to the curb, she won't be missed.

Pelosi is not worthy of being placed in 'the good stuff we got' category.

@H2O MAN,
I guess you preferred Hastert, who protected the congressman who is a pedophile, and who was the biggest promoter of pork.

OK I'll paste it again. Cyclo's statement above is accurate (except that I and a very large segment of the population don't count themselves among Cyclo's "you" as in "you could want").

Significantly it was this that led to the massive shift away from Democrats in the House of Representatives in the recent election. I should also note that the final legislation passed in the cases of health care and Financial reform were essentially those drafted and passed in the Senate - not the House. The Administration abandoned the effort to get final passage of Cap & Trade entirely. So it seems that Nancy's victories were rather illusory or Phyrric at best.

Untrue. Not even a little true. Just projection on your part.

@Cycloptichorn,
OK then perhaps you would enlighten us on the real cause for the Democrat setbacks across the board and in the House of Representatives in particular during the recent election.

Please don't base you argument on the obvious fact that in most instances the most left wing members of the Democrat caucus survived. They represent gerrymandered districts like Pelosi's own that will elect left wing Democrats forever. Political shifts (and control) in this country is usually determined by the choices of centrist and uncommitted voters, and in this election they soundly rejected Pelosi's views and actions.

@georgeob1,
I believe it's more complex than you make it out to be. I think it begins with the wrong impression most voters had about Obama and what he accomplished - or didn't. The other issue that voters were unhappy about is the level of unemployment; loss of jobs and homes while he bailed out banks and the auto industry.

I don't think Pelosi's record is well known by the electorate for them to decide the change in the House.
