Skip to comments.Democrats shun idea of Pelosi floor fight in speakerís race

Call it the chaos theory for picking the next House speaker.
Those Democrats trying to stop California Rep. Nancy Pelosi from reclaiming the job say they dont need a rival candidate just yet. Instead, they plan to show that Pelosi lacks the votes to win the race. And then, they say, new challengers will emerge.
Its strategy that has other Democrats cringing at the prospect of their new House majority in disarray. They say voters swept them to office in this months elections to govern, not become bogged down by the kind of Republican infighting that sent Ohio Rep. John Boehner to an early exit as speaker and weakened his successor, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan.
The last thing they want is a floor fight over the leadership post when Congress opens work in January.
If the first Democratic value they see is chaos, I dont think thats very good, said Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., who recently wrote an op-ed with colleagues supporting Pelosi. I dont think its a good look at all.
The chaos theory will be put to a test this coming week when House Democrats meet in private for a vote nominating Pelosi to become speaker in January.

So are the white Commies losing their grip? What a shame.
It figures they'd make this all about the speaker's race. ;^)
meeting in private. What are they hiding?
MSM , will you spin it that way?
Nancy, it’s a Gavel, not a Shotgun.
Release it from your cold, weathered hands.
Your young folk want a new captain at the helm.
The truth is, YOU, Ms Pelosi have run the ship aground more than once. Do you think everyone’s forgotten about 2010?
Meanwhile, I’ll just sit back and watch how this Family Feud plays out. If I were an insurgent Dem, I would try embedding a mole deep within your War Room burrow.
Leaking to the media can be great entertainment when done correctly. “Oops! We did it again, and again, and again!”
Ryan was naturally weak; it wasn't any "infighting" that did it to him.
If anything, it was the infighting that kept strong candidates from emerging. In fact, it is a misguided sense of seniority that keeps strong candidates from emerging.
“They say voters swept them to office in this months elections to govern...” Not hardly. They were elected to get President Trump.
The ‘RATs better teach their little communist cocktail waitresses how to do the goose step. Commie freeloaders “of color” are the DNC’s future. The old Woodstock 60s hippies have just about all died off.
When she shows to all a loss of mental faculties it will be harder to remove her so stopping her in the first place would be a smart move.
i have such mixed feelings about this
certainly just about the best thing for normal American voters (sane people) of either party... would be to SEE just how crazy and destructive Pelousy (still) is
but she would certainly wreck even further damage on America
if given any power in Congress (just like she did by falsely certifying Obama’s eligibility papers...and by cramming O-care down our throats) a very destructive, lying person....
on balance, I sure hope they lock her in the coat closet
and NOT make her speaker again!
Nah. Pelosi knows exactly what shes doing
“The old Woodstock 60s hippies have just about all died off.”
Only the city-living ones checked out-the smart ones moved here to BFE because they saw the real world and got conservative-they are my neighbors, gardening organically, free ranging livestock and voting Republican along with the rest of us...
“He’s gone country, look at them boots
He’s gone country-back to his roots”...
O think it was fraud that swept the democrats into power, plain pure simple fraud, nothing more, nothing less.
They need to find a minority.
BUMP. No doubt in my mind.
