WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Democrats have re-elected Nancy Pelosi as their leader in the next Congress.

The closed-door vote Wednesday will let the California congresswoman shift from House speaker to minority leader in January, despite concerns by some Democrats that the party needs new leadership after suffering huge midterm election losses.

On one hand, I’m sick of seeing her and was hoping for someone new.

On the other hand, maybe this will help people remember that the Democratic party has not learned anything and not to trust them with power in the future.

..Pelosi is a terrible negative image for the Dems...we must get rid of Steele and go on the attack...make no mistake, the Dems keep her because she can marshal Dem strength...they’ll never stop trying to transform this country into a Euro-Socialist state...Steele’s sucessor must go after her every day...she must be vilified continously...start with her private plane that we’re paying for.

"I guess this is a good thing for us."

Honestly, it's the absolute best thing Republicans could have hoped for. The only thing better would have been to elect Rangel.

Brings to mind the Bible verse about a dog returning to his vomit.

“As a dog returneth to his vomit, [so] a fool returneth to his folly.”

Proverbs 26:11

I am sure tonight Shoen and Caddell will be bemoaning this move and Obama’s full steam ahead Marxist tour. The Dems sealed their fate for 2012, the Senate is lost for them and more Pubbie pickups in the House. Throw in Bar Mizvah boy Shumer his crusade agianst Red Bull, the groper TSA scandal, Rangel and other misdeeds and stupidity and the Dems are dead as a doornail. Now if the Pubbbies can do what they said they would do and nominate someone worthy of being President(Pense, DeMint, etc) and someone actually electable not (Palin, Romney, Huckaturd) we can be in better shape to make real changes.

Pelosi = Obamah

It would be like replacing Obamah after only two years.

The White House would have none of that, even if it meant shoving Clyburn to the back of the bus.

#2 likely goes to Hoyer,

with Clyburn driving from the rear of the bus in a newly created diversity position, Minority Minority Assistant to Miss Nancy.

It will be interesting to see how many Dem Representatives refuse to vote for Pelosi in the formal Speaker vote in January. Now, that the Dems lost control of the House maybe their leadership won’t punish Dems in competitive districts who vote for a Rat other than Pelosi as Speaker.
