Team Pelosi

Expected but still laughable. The decimated remains of the Blue Dog caucus, led by the hapless Steny Hoyer, are challenging Nancy Pelosi for minority leader. The Hill version at the link is the shorter of the Politico/Reuters hit piece.

Well count me as a member of Team Pelosi. The media clearly intends to run with the Blue Dogs but she already announced she is running. Sign the petition to let her know you support her. I even left a personal thank you note. She deserves it for the work she did for liberal legislation. Can't remember if it was 206 or 406 bills she got passed that died in the Senate.

I'd like to see a challenge to Harry by someone with more guts for the game, but we need Nancy's leadership now, more than ever.

Right on, Libby!

The problem wasn't with Nancy Pelosi and the House, it was with Harry Reid and the Senate. If the Senate had acted appropriately on the bills sent over by the House, the Democrats would have even bigger majorities all the way around and might even have challenged the President to get with the program.

So true Diane. Harry's "leadership" was a prime cause of the debacle on Tuesday. Obviously didn't want him to lose since the alternative was Angle, but I REALLY hope someone challenges him for the gavel. Was hoping it would be Feingold...
