Why are andidates who promised to oppose Pelosi to lure conservative Dems and moderate Republicans

now being supported by Dems who claim Pelosi needs to go to make room for more progressive leadership?

Doesnít make a lick of sense.

Címon, people.

2. Simple answer. They are not Republicans and they were the alternate choice. That does make sense.

Personally I support Pelosi. Why people are perplexed about supporting a Democrat over a Republican via the Pelosi factor is nonsense.
Elect Democrats and work it out from there. We fight the battles that are put before us.

If you are talking primaries you have an excellent point. In the generals, not so much.

4. After reading your post again I think the term "now" went right by me. I was responding in terms of

Dem vs, Repub in general. Factor in the "now" and it seems to be age and sex related.

5. I have not heard any elected members say she needs to go for a a more progressive Speaker.

I have seen the progressives say she needs to be the Speaker versus a more centrist, less progressive type that the centrists who are opposing Pelosi want.

Did I miss something?
