Wasserman Schultz Preparing to Oust Pelosi
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | October 11, 2012 | Tony Lee

Posted on 10/12/2012 9:16:37 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz may be President Barack Obama's worst surrogate, at least according to the Obama campaign's internal polls. But Wasserman Schultz may be campaigning for herself to win an under-the-radar race for a leadership position in her party that may allow her to succeed Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who could retire from Congress next spring.

The Democratic Caucus Vice Chair -- the no. 5 leadership post -- is opening up and the National Journal reports Wasserman Schultz may be actively campaigning for the spot. DWS has been soliciting votes from Democrats who could potentially unseat Republicans in November.

Pelosi, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), and Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) are the three top-ranking Democrats, and they are all in their 70s.

Rep. John Larson (D-CT) holds the no. 4 spot (Caucus Chairman) but is term-limited, which means Vice Chairman Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) will most likely move up to the fourth spot. Hispanics within the Democratic party would view Becerra's ascent favorably.

That leaves Becerra's no. 5 spot open, which could be a "placeholder" for someone like Wasserman Schultz with higher aspirations.

According to the National Journal, "barring another shellacking this fall, the House Democratic Caucus is not likely to force out Pelosi, 72, as its leader, even if Democrats do not succeed in recapturing the majority."

But Pelosi may leave Congress in the Spring and try to ensure she is succeeded by someone of her choosing...

Initially, I read the title to say she was preparing to out Pelosi. That made me throw up in my mouth a bit.

Last time I heard from Pelosi, she was telling anyone who would listen that her party was going to take back the House of Representatives this election.

This would be the end of the RATS. Anyway, Schultz may not be around after the next election. I hear Harrington is doing very well against Miracle Whip Debbie.

Probably a short fight based on last December's comment by Pelosi's daughter:

In the for-what-it's-worth department: Nancy Pelosi's daughter tells the conservative Big Government website that her mom would love to leave Congress. "She would retire right now, if the donors she has didn’t want her to stay so badly," says filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi. "She’s 71, she wants to have a life, she’s done. It’s obligation, that’s all I’m saying."

“””. “She would retire right now, if the donors she has didn’t want her to stay so badly,”””

So many bribes, so little time.

Well, that too.

DWS is unlikely to overpower Stenny Hoyer. He's got her number.

Wasserman-Schultz would be like the captain of the Titanic, if he survived and took command of another ship.

This woman makes even Pelosi seem tolerable

Pelosi has another gig as an actress all lined up. I saw her latest performance, in a GEICO commercial, flying around in a broom factory.

This is almost a political ad suggesting we vote for her. What an example to have as the house leader of the dem party after queen leaves.

I'm not buying it. Her goal to kill the USA has not been reached yet. Granted, it is on life-support, but it's not quite dead.

Yup. They'd cut each other’s throats to get up the next rung of the socialist ladder.

Washed up Wasserman up looks like one of the old gals that used to do women’s roller derby.

Interesting quote.

I figured Nan would be one of those (like Julia Carson was here in Indiana) that would go right from the House floor to a mortuary.
