    not quantity.

    Ok, so Pelosi gt 400 bills through the house.  Some died or got mutated in Senate, some passed - where were the ones that would make a difference?

    Investigate Bush war crimes?  nada
    Cut/restrict military funding of wars?  no dice
    single payer health care?  chirp chirp
    Restoration of equal time on media?  wha?
    Elimination of tax subsidies  for oil?  mmm, not
    Financial regulation on CDS and mortgage lending?
    Glass-Steagal Part 2?  didn't think so
    etc.

    File those 400 under "what have you done for me lately"

    The biggest indictment of Pelosi (and Reeds) lack of leadership was in the low turnout that allowed not only Republican domination of the House, but the abysmal situation in State Houses - Scat Walker, Kaisch Kow and the rest of the union busting Koch fronts;   all courtesy of weak Democratic party leadership.

    Obama included.
