    We should be pushing her to stay in the leadership position.

    Nancy Pelosi sets off speculation about her future

    Almost certain to come up well short of the net gain of 25 seats she needs to become Speaker again, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi has called party leadership elections for Nov. 29, well after the Nov. 6 election, setting off speculation across Washington that she may not run for leader again. ....
    Pelosi was toppled as Speaker in the GOP 2010 landslide after a four-year run as the first female Speaker and highest ranking female politician in U.S. history. She has led House Democrats for 10 years, “the longest such stint in more than 50 years” according to The Hill newspaper. She raised $7.2 million for Democrats in September, holding 77 events in five states. There are plenty of ambitious younger pols such as Chris Van Hollen (MD) waiting in the wings to see what Pelosi does, as well as her former rival, Steny Hoyer, 73.
    Seeing the name Hoyer as a replacement makes me cringe.
