2. Good positions on issues, but to the gotcha question on Pelosi...

why not just say something like: "Let me get in office first and we'll take care of that when the time comes".

That question is meant to divide Democrats.

And info from the video said she's just about guaranteed the seat and doesn't have to try to appeal to any on-the-fence, repug voters.

4. Yep

Folks against Pelosi do not know who she is, her strengths and just how much she has and will accomplish.

8. Democrats are so g'damned naive.

You ever watch these repuKKKe politicians and spin meisters on the networks answer a direct question? Wake the fuck up and take a lesson.

They NEVER answer such a stupid question of party division...NEVER!!!!! They simply redirect and shoot off a few talking points. The castrated host will often come back to pose the same question, and then they sit back and watch “redirect II” as they avoid answering the question a second time, but instead they get a platform to blather off a few new talking points they haven’t spread...UNCHALLENGED EVERY FUCKING TIME!!

Get a damned clue! Why are we such an ignorant, naive bunch of losers! Grow a pair...educate yourself and fight back.

We have a few outstanding contributors...whose names I don’t have at the tip of my fingers; but they ALL need to take lessons from them. RepuKKKes don’t play the same game. They don’t play nice. They don’t play fair. When are we going to wake up and start playing the same game, or at least one that doesn’t make us look like divided fools.

STUPID response! Big..BIG mistake!

10. That's fine...

I have no problem with competition. Some day Pelosi and I aren't going to be around.

I think you either missed my point completely, or you were just offering me some info?

11. I don't really get your point

Unless you think they’re all naive.

Most or at least much of the opposition IMO has to do with our outdated House seniority rules. Pelosi, Hoyer and Clyburn are collectively 235 years old and we have a number of committee chairs over 80. Pelosi has done very little to open up career paths for spring chickens like 60-something Jerrold Nadler, who’s only the ranking member of the judiciary because 89-year-old John Conyers couldn’t overcome a raft load of sexual harassment charges. Which is a good thing because instead of having someone who was showing telltale signs of senility (in addition to his other problems) lead impeachment hearings, we’ll have Nadler. Pelosi and Clyburn both stumbled all over themselves in response to that problem, if you’ll recall.

We dodged a bullet there, but by term-limiting committee chairs like Republicans do (one thing we really should imitate instead of their often destructive party discipline), we never would have even flirted with that potential disaster. Something resembling a meritocracy as opposed to lifetime tenure would be nice, don’t you think?

What’s really naive is not to expect exactly this level of opposition now that Pelosi is obviously vulnerable and we have a chance to retake the House. I think she still wins the Speakership but not without major reforms and that’s why so many Dems are playing this the way they are.

12. I see the opposite

right-wingers drove Boehner out, and now they're driving Paul Ryan out.

Do I want the left-wing to do that Pelosi? Not necessarily. But if the question is comparing dems to republicans I don't agree with your comparison.
