Facing an uphill battle to reclaim the House in November, many Democrats are speculating whether Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi might leave Congress after the elections and are wondering what sort of fallout the leadership structure would face if she did.
While the California lawmakers intentions are essentially unknowable her top aides had no idea she would stay on in the wake of Republicans winning the House in 2010, when it was widely expected she would step down people who know Pelosi well say it is unlikely she would opt for a quick exit.
In interviews with more than two dozen lawmakers, aides and lobbyists, some instead predict that Pelosi will stay in Congress to help set the stage for a successor, rather than allow Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) to simply move up the ranks to replace her.

She hates America too much to retire!
She will most likely retire come this November when she sees a hugh conservative GOP sweep in the House and Senate.
Hopefully she will be in jail where she belongs.
I think she likes the perks too much. She’ll leave claw marks even when they drag her dead corpse out.
If I were in charge after the elections, I would have Ms Pelosi undergo a continual series of IRS rectal exams throughout the rest of her miserable life.
I wish the voters would retire her in November.

She should retire on her own..save herself and her family further embarassment. Her comments have always been pretty wacky, but have been getting really bad lately.
Get rid of moi?... Never!
Oh my gosh! What... are we to do?
IIRC, Dorthy... you dropped a house on her sister. That might work again.
In this housing market... how could we afford another house?
There is always... 'The Bucket of Water' Option--
Hear that, Toto? Everything... will be alright!
... I'm melting... MELTING!
Don't ya just love it... when a plan comes together!
Well, Hannibal, I'll tell ya, it'll do... until another house is available--
Exactly. Her feet are in concrete.
Why would she run if she were going to retire?
Hoyer has debased himself so often while worshipping at the shrine her backside has become to him that it would be embarrassing to most men.
Gargoyles last for centuries - I’ve seen them on castles in England.
Her comments are getting really bizarre (not that that's unusual for a democrat). I wonder if she's in some early stage of dementia?
LOL! LOL! Post of the day. Hilarious.
She will most likely retire come this November when she sees a hugh ....Are you series? A manatee? Oh, no!
No not even her mind.
Thanks for your compliment, upchucker... but I feel these two following posts deserve some praise, too: and --
If anything, Bendy is fair... and balanced--
Plus, he makes sweet, sweet love... like a house-a-fire!
Hey, Megyn, you want fries... with that?
Yes, yes, yes! After being with Bendy I need the calories... to replenish my strength--
Whew! Tell me... about it!
Well, thinking more about that - wouldn't it be great to fire anyone who has developed a sense of “ownership” of his/her office? You know - those who think they are NOT supposed to be public servants>
Gadzooks! Been getting that 'LOL' as lot lately and I wonder... just what could it mean?
Licking... Old Ladies? Surely... not?
Bender, Don't call me "Shirley" and for heavens sake... do not show that licking photo ever again!
Bendy, 'LOL' could mean Licking... Old Lohan?
No, Lindsay, don't got there! But... 'LOL' may be Looking... Over Leela--
Or it could... mean Loop... Over Loop.
Hey, Bend, I... know what it means: Laughable Obama Lie--"I back Capitalism... 100% percent!
But don't tell him... I told ya!
Bender, I've been dead nearly 150 years, and I know... 'LOL' is internet shorthand for Laughing Out Loud!
Thanks, Abe... You always keep me on the beam!
Thye onlu beam you stay on, Bender... is Jim Beam--
