        as are many Democrats.  Rather than develop and support new leadership we insist on throwing back in the ones that have failed.  Yes, failed.   Pelosi got the ACA passed but garnered almost no public support for what should have been a widely supported program.  No effective effort was made to educate the public about what was in the bill and how it would effect them.

        Within months of its passage it was widely hated, as was Pelosi herself.  She still can barely crack a 30% favorability  rating (so obviously plenty of Dems aren't wild about her either).  The 2010 Teapartier debacle occurred under her House leadership.  She should have resigned then.  

        Now, living under the TeaHouse, I rarely see her as an effective voice of opposition.  Time to move on.  Actually, we are a few years past that time.
