Nancy Pelosi walked a fine line today and did it well.

Here was a woman who has dealt with a number of Presidents over the years and I am sure has great respect for the office of the President. Today she was face to face with a buffoon, a liar and a pretender. She put him in his place but did it with grace and strength. I have only admiration for what she did and how she did it.

7. AND already ball-stomped a rebellion inside her own caucus...

And it's only been a month and she hasn't even been elected Speaker yet (officially).

Trump and the Russian Mob are in for a world of hurt come feburary lol!

On Edit: I wasn't completely convinced 3 weeks ago, but this is what our country needs just now; someone who knows how to Wield Power as both it's own end, for the greater Good, AND as a teaching tool.

MADAME SPEAKER.

9. She was fabulous at her last turn as SOTH.

I can't see her doing anything less than stellar this time around. Plus the GOP has shown their high cards so she's got so many options on how to play THEM. And she's so good at that.

10. Just the fact that she actually knows how to count (votes)

Is gonna make this just an outright Party for the next 2 years, to say nothing of what she's gonna let her committee chairs issue subponeas for (not bullshit) lol.

HOWEVER--i am prepared already for the fights that are comming around here regarding Policy, What's Possible, and What Hills We Should Want To Die For...because I remember well the passage of the ACA.

Don't kid yourself, it's gonna be harsh. As long as we remember to love each other through it, it will be ok.

8. I knew she would do it if given the opportunity

I also have no doubt she would have done it without the opportunity his stupidity offered her in front of the entire world watching.


I’m a Pelosi fan since the Obama Administration. I remember when she took on the job of Speaker when President Obama was elected. Her first public words were “Elections have consequences”. Exactly what she just told Trump.

Ageists on DU need to pay attention if they want to be relevant. Youth does not trump a lifetime of experience. Those who live long enough will know this first hand.
