Democrats who have pushed for Rep. Nancy Pelosis ouster as House minority leader are standing down at least until after Novembers midterm elections.
Republican Speaker Paul D. Ryans surprise announcement last week that he would retire at the end of his term boosted Democrats hopes that they could wrest back control of the House this fall.

[Pelosi has] guided the party for 17 years...off a cliff!
And I, for one, can live with that! :)
17 years to go from Nuffin to $100 million
I think she is doing a fine job. I say she should stick around for another 30-40 years. Like Walt Disney, she can record her directives to the party to follow after her death. Once in a while they can wheel her out in a frozen cube for the party faithful, you know, like “Disney on Ice.”
“...Yes. Let her stay!!!!....”
And, keep her talking!!!
LEAVE NANCY ALONE!
Time for Nutsy to eat ... crumbs ...
