Posted on 08/17/2018 2:18:43 AM PDT by Libloather
Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said he would step in to run for Speaker of the House if Democrats take back the chamber in November and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) does not appear to have the votes, he told The New York Times.
The comments are the latest indication he is exploring a run for the Speakership.
Clyburn, who is currently the third highest ranking Democrat in the House, would be the bodys first black Speaker. He said his claiming the Speakership would put to bed forever the notion that the Democratic Caucus is taking black voters for granted.

It's as if Hussein never existed.
The future is so bright for dems, I gotta wear shades.
Clyburn or Pelosi? A win/win for us. Why not Ocasio?
What exaxtly does the "third highest ranking Democrat" do? As I recall, the position was created just for Clyburn.
If Pelosi doesnt have enough votes, you are going to have a lot of competition, Jimmy.
Why not challenge Nancy head to head? It is a leadership position.
See its always if she doesnt have the votes. Nan has the votes
Lol.. you were right about that. A career politician who is going to save people based on skin color. It’s not 1940 dude.. there are many successful people of all colors. Are you going to allow them to conduct insider trading, like congress?
They all think they alone discovered racism exists.
Please keep Pelosi. please, Please PLEASE!
She’s the Gift that keeps on Giving.
Calypso Louies buddy.
Its all moot because they arent going to take back the House.
Let’s hold out for Maxine: We’d get the blackness of Clyburn PLUS the loopiness of PeesLoosley-—A two-fer deal!!!
This is all about the polls. The Dems are watching Trump’s approval rising among African American voters. If he gets anywhere close to that percentage voting for him in 2020, it’ll be 1984 all over again.

That is a devistating turn of events. Walking with Martin no longer matters.
Unfortunately I was gerrymandered into Clyburn’s district which is the largest in South Carolina and keeps growing like a cancer. BTW, being white means I have no Congressman whatsoever.
That said, if the worst happened & he became speaker, SanFranNan would look Churchillian in comparison.
He and San Fran Nan...are both 78 years old...
TERM LIMITS NEEDED.
Congressman Clyburn is as unqualified as Nancy Pelosi to be speaker of the house.
Hes nothing but a privileged affirmative action candidate.
They have to win the danged House in November before he can become king of the hill.
Funny thing is, it was a DIMO-commie president named LBJ who hated blacks to the core, but he knew they could become the ATM card for the dims. He routinely called them the “N” word in the Oval Office. He did not care about blacks anymore than the elites of the leftists do today. The blacks are only a means to get elected. How many of the big Hillary type white elites, when they have all their big parties, invite a bunch of blacks?? Very few. When you see the pictures of those gangs of thieves, there is their token one or two blacks in a sea of white faces. Even the elite blacks don’t care about the poor blacks. They are only a vote for the dims. That is all those commie leftist’s want from them. Just vote for us and we will make sure you get that government check for $200 each month. How the heck far does $200 go??? Not far at all, yet they continue to vote for the dims. They continue to believe the lies. Dr. King was a republican. It took the Republicans in the House and Senate to get all the voting rights acts, civil rights act, that LBJ wanted. His own party would not vote those in. Republicans did. Yet, today, you cannot find 1 in 100 blacks that know that. They think the dims have done everything for them.
This is a great strategy for the Dims: replace one deranged lefty idiot with another deranged lefty idiot.
That’ll make all the difference in the world!
