    Default When Democrats win - should Pelosi return as Speaker of the House?

    She is effective but I say too much baggage!

    what say you?
    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    No, we need new leadership.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    I'm personally not optimistic about tonight's outcome.

    Somehow, I doubt we could do much worse than Trump.

    on local radio - she says she is the best and most qualified. Her job will be to help women in politics. She wants to return to how she did it in the past.

    If the dems win the house, it's pretty much a sure thing Nancy Pelosi returns as Speaker, she doesn't have any strong competitor.

    Maybe, but once Trump and Pence have been removed for treason, do you really want President Pelosi?

    Nobody believed such a career criminal as DFT could actually be elected, and now you don’t want to believe that he will be indicted, convicted of treason and sentenced to hang by the neck until he is dead.

    This is is a very large and very strange world, ol’ son.

    Brace yourself.

    What Figment said.

    Unfortunately, Pelosi will try to help fellow conservative women like Kirsten Gillibrand, not centrists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or live wires like Sharice Davids - who I admit is new to me.. but new, right now, is good.

    But don't worry Rep and Dem conservatives.. the good cop/bad cop team of Dems/Reps will continue to ensure the poor get poorer, the middle become poor, and the rich get richer - 'cause nothing says Democracy© like 200 million working class poor slaving & starving to support ridiculous wealth for a few lucky souls.

    Go Team!

    I reckon the winds of change will wash past many old hands of both sides and Biden et al will not be the candidates of the future. Maybe the Dems will still try an old hand like Joe, and lose in 2020. Inertia is hard to overcome.

    The way I look at this is no matter who democrats vote to be speaker they will be villified by Trump and blamed for everything from bone spurs to whatever. So, given this, I think democrats need to elect a strong speaker who can control 229 democrats and get them all moving in the right direction. Running a caucus and navigating the House takes someone with lots of savvy and experience and in spite of what you think of Pelosi she is in fact a no nonsense leader that can control the caucus.

    She would not be a bad choice in my opinion.
