Skip to comments.Nancy Pelosi faces new challenge from Rep. Barbara Lee and Congressional Black Caucus
Posted on 11/16/2010 1:12:11 PM PST by SmithL
The Congressional Black Caucus is refusing to endorse House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as minority leader, demanding that members get solid evidence that Rep. James Clyburn, the highest ranking African American in the Democratic leadership, will be more than a titular member of the new order.
Pelosi faces a secret-ballot vote tomorrow as she stands for election as House minority leader. She is expected to win with broad support from liberals, despite open rebellion among conservative Blue Dog Democrats and grumbling from some more liberal members who have questioned the rush to reinstall Pelosi after this month's landslide losses.
Clyburn had challenged moderate Maryland Democrat Steny Hoyer for the number two post, setting off a struggle just beneath Pelosi. Lee had backed Clyburn as Pelosi attempted to broker a truce by creating a new post, "assistant leader" for Clyburn, who had been whip.

Wow, Nancy is no longer officially “black.”
Heh, Heh....she said ‘titular’......
Looks like the “liberals” (marxists) are going to hijack the Democrat party, whether the party wants it or not.
Sounds like the CBC has no intention of playing “Driving Miss Nancy”...
LMAO! This will be fun to watch. Pass the popcorn!
Good. I want Maxine Waters ugly mug in a leadership position so the American people can see that these clowns are nuttier than squirrel turds.
Fight Barbara! Fight! Throw stuff! Scream! Riot! Pull her hair! Burn your desk! Loot the congressional convenience store!
A 1/3rd of dems in the next congress will black.
Note to Democrats in Congress: Beware of vote fraud.
Oh, my mistake - Democrats are generally supportive of and responsible for massive vote fraud. Never mind...
Vote for Lee. Send money! Get the word out. Go Lee Go! Lee for President!
How can the leadership of the House dem NOT be liberal? That’s the vast majority of who remains, and they hate they have utter contempt for the blue dogs (a contempt that was earned, after most blue dogs turned into lap dogs). Whether they like to show America or not, radical leftists is WHO THEY ARE.
Bitch slap Nan back to Gay-land.
More than a titular member . . . . . ? I think the CBC is grossly inderestimating the roll and value of The PCC (Pelosi's Chief Chauffeur).
What? No card-check?
Uh-oh. Nancy pissed off the Congresssional Amish Caucus.
Great. I love to watch two witches in a fight.
In one corner, The Silicone Queen, Nancy “San Francisco” Pelosi. In the other, another racialist fanatic.
Hope they mutually annihilate each other like matter and anti-matter.
