  •  Gotta disagree here. (0+ / 0-)

    The House under Nancy Pelosi's leadership was a pretty tight ship. She got things DONE; it was in the Senate where all the legislation died. There's nobody better at counting votes & marshaling support. Few politicians on our side have the combination of principle, strategic acumen, fund-raising prowess & political savvy that she possesses. Though I would concede that she's been on the wrong side a few times - chained CPI, bombing Syria - in the role of House Speaker there's no one better. That's why she retains the overwhelming support of the House Democratic caucus, in spite of the way she's been made into a bete noire by the right-wing media machine.
