  •  Taking back the House (8+ / 0-)

    is not Nancy Pelosi's main job -- it's to control the House Democrats that are already there. And she's done a good job of that; when she was Speaker, over 400 bills were passed by the House that went to the Senate and died because they never came up for discussion.

    If you want to take back the House, go bark at the DNC and the DCCC, and the state Democratic parties that are still letting way too many Republicans run unopposed for their House seats. That's where the real problem lies.

      nc turned deep red this year and lost US house seats because of redistricting.

      not because nancy pelosi showed up in boogeyman attack ads. but because the state legislature was controlled by republicans when they re-drew the maps.  

      because democrats (not enlightened kossacks like ourselves) think you only vote every 4 years when there's a presidential election.

      and that's what we need to work on.  not eating our own empowered female leaders.
