House Democrats Preparing for a Post-Pelosi World

Wasserman Schultz, 46, got the candidates promise of support for at least the vice chairmanship, beating to the punch another member who would later be telephoning, Californias Barbara Lee, 66.
Such are the maneuverings of a handful of younger House Democrats scrambling to secure commitments in their bids for a seat at the caucuss leadership tableor perhaps at its head.
But she has become something of a wild card for handicappers now that she is unlikely to be offered the opportunity to stay on at the DNC or join a second Obama administration. If she takes on Crowley or awaits a total leadership realignment post-Pelosi, Wasserman Schultz has collected lots of chits on the campaign trail.
Former Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Lee and Rep. Jared Polis rep. Jared Polis Democrat Colorado, who would be the first openly gay member to enter House Democratic leadership, have not conceded the race to Crowley or anyone else. Both would have their own built-in constituencies within the House Democratic Caucus.

DWS should worry more about being re-elected.
Funny how blacks fail to advance to top Democrat leadership positions cept maybe to head the black caucus.
However, I saw the same technique used here in Tn when one
of our RAT senators, Jim Sasser, was said to be considered
for VP. Sasser, of course lost anyway.
ROTFL. You’re right.
Pelosi should go into a jail cell.
” Jared Polis Democrat Colorado, who would be the first openly gay member to enter House Democratic leadership”
So ah Bwarney Fwank was closeted ?
...or a strait jacket
What's really funny is how Pelosi had to create an entirely new leadership position for James Clyburn when the House flipped to Republicans in 2010.
Pelosi was Speaker, Hoyer was Majority leader, and Clyburn was Party Whip. After 2010, Pelosi became Minority Leader and Hoyer became Minority Whip, leaving Clyburn outside the plantation house. So, Pelosi created a brand new role called Assistant Leader just for Clyburn, so he could remain in "leadership."
forgive me if I’m wrong but isn’t the job of the “Party Whip” to go around the hill and look for members with a whip and get them off their lazy drunk asses to go in and vote for what ever the current leadership wanted?
Yeth it ith. Thorry
Wow, what a Hobson’s Choice! DWS as Democratic Minority Leader?
On one hand, OMG what an annoying woman . . .
On the other hand, with her as DML we’d NEVER lose the House!!
A really tough choice . . .
My dream would be answered
