2. That's fine by me so long as AOC is 35 or Dems are in the White House.

If she is not 35 and we're not in the WH, we need someone else as Speaker. No sense following the VP in succession if you can't serve.

3. I want her to be the first Speaker

to march successive ReThugs out of Congress for unacceptable behavior. She can keep going till they're all gone!

4. In my opinion she has issues. Tough isn't the same as mean and insensitive.

Her most recent insulting tweet was about John Delaney, 'John Delaney thank you, but please sashay away'. Was homophobic and mean spirited. She is smart, but also impulsive and hot headed. She needs to learn some humility and get a lot more experience.

6. There is no line of succession to the Speakership.

It doesn't work like that, not even in a fantasy team. Realistically, as Speaker, Pelosi's skills and experience is the result of decades of work. She is one in a million and her eventual replacement will have to demonstrate the same abilities to convince, cajole and command the unified support of the Democratic majority to plan a successful legislative agenda.

AOC is simply too new and inexperienced to rule the House and take on the opposition with a winning strategy. Give her time to learn the ropesband in the future she may prove to be a formidable politician worthy of that title.

7. She needs more experience.

In time, I have no doubt she’ll be near the top.

8. No, I can't

She’s not even close to being ready for that responsibility.
