Kossacks, it’s time to get Nancy Pelosi’s back.
As you read this, Pelosi is mulling over whether to run for House Minority Leader. The basic process involves counting her supporters. If she is going to run, she needs to hear from her supporters ASAP that they still in her corner.
You can make her voice heard by signing this petition of support. I will do my best to deliver the petition to her personally before she makes her decision. She will hear your voice.
The Blue Dogs want her out. So, we are now in a fight for control for the party. We have to win it, and signing this petition helps us win it.
This isn’t a petition pleading with powerful people to do the right thing. This is an immediate show of support that is critical to whether or not she runs.
Get Nancy Pelosi’s back. Let her know you want her to run for Democratic leader in the house. Do it now.
Update--Another Blue dog calls for Pelosi to step down. The Blue Dogs are piling on:
Rep. Dan Boren, a conservative Democrat from Oklahoma, says he wants outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi replaced as the leader of House Democrats.
"I cannot in good conscience support Nancy Pelosi as Leader. I intend to support a more conservative Democrat alternative," he said in a statement.
This is a real fight. We have to pile on ourselves.
Update 2--Pelosi is running!!: It's on! Pelosi tweets:

Driven by the urgency of creating jobs & protecting #hcr, #wsr, Social Security & Medicare, I am running for Dem Leader.
Keep showing your support. All House Dems needs to see it.
