    Guess that depends on how you look at it.

    I consider Reid a major liability because of his utter, willful blindness on the filibuster question.

    I think Pelosi did a fine job as Speaker and hope to see her there again.

    If you are speaking politically I recognize the GOPers hate her with a white hot burning passion and trot her out as a bogeywoman to incite their oafish base...

    But I'm not at all in favor of letting the GOP dictate our party leadership.  Their suffering when she retakes the gavel will make it all the sweeter.

    •  Her polls numbers run only 25-35% favorable (0+ / 0-)

      That's obviously not solely Fox/GOP hardliners in the other 65-75%.  That's in 2013.

      And really, that's all that counts.  The rest is history.

      •  Nobody in the Congressional leadership... (0+ / 0-)

        In either house or on either side polls especially well.  They are all in about the same range as Pelosi.

        Pelosi does appear to poll a tad worse but that may just be because she is more recognizable.

        What really surprises me about this poll is that only 60% even know who the Turtle Man is.
