  •  I read a poll this morning that put Pelosi 20% (0+ / 0-)

    behind Congressional democrats. In other words, her caucus score way better than she does. I think if this trend persist, Pelosi could become a drag on the democratic caucus.

    Don't give a damn a/t each & every politician currently alive in the US. Last time i voted for the top part of the ballot was 1972. Never missed SB election

      as the preferred whipping-"girl" of the Right. No surprise, there.

      What does surprise me is the extent to which we have accepted their framing, though.

      We could actually take a page from the Republicans' book here. There is no way they wouldn't stand up and defend a Republican Speaker of the House from attacks by the left.

      Here we criticize Democrats in Congress for being wimpy, yet here we go again folding on our own Democratic leaders.

        dump Pelosi bandwagon.  
         

      •  Her low numbers cannot only be explained (0+ / 0-)

        by the republican negative views of her. She has something like more than 65% unfavorable views. That's way beyond the republican realm.

      •  Just one more point, this place loved to hate (0+ / 0-)

        Hillary during the primaries. I read more garbage about her on this blog than in other place. So, let us not rewrite history here.

        Something has to be said about Hillary is that she achieved notoriety despite the liberal wing of the democratic party, not because of it.
