Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday easily cleared the first hurdle on her path to reclaiming the House speakership by winning the Democrats nomination.
Her top two lieutenants also renewed their leases on leadership jobs in the next Congress, meaning House Democrats will likely be led by the same team that has reigned for the past dozen years, taking them to the heights of power, suffering colossal defeats and ascending once again.
She managed to win over a batch of converts Wednesday by striking a deal with nine Democrats in the Problem Solvers Caucus. She agreed to rules changes that would give rank-and-file members more of a say in legislative business.
Still, some 35 Democrats refused to back Mrs. Pelosi. Three left ballots blank, and 32 voted for others. One lawmaker was out sick.

Sounds like they want Pelosi to go quietly. Exactly how much Dem money does she have power over.
They aren’t “with Her”?
What happened to the feminazi press that was talking up support for women in the Democrat Congress?
*Only thing he campaigned on. Got kind of tiring.
Shes a dem. Get the vote thru fraud. Whats the big deal?
Bummer, I’m kinda looking forward to the train wreck.
It’s looks like Negative Nancy is going to be paying top dollar for the job this time. I think it’s great. The Speaker of the House job shouldn’t be cheap. If you want it, SHOW US THE MONEY!!!
>> Im kinda looking forward to the train wreck.
Me too. I was kinda hoping they’d put up OcASSia-Pendeja.
How difficult can it be to recount 35 ballots until they all say “Pelosi”?
Trump said Pelosi deserves it.
If a Dem ain’t backing Pelousi, it’s not because they’re sane or sensible, but because they want a younger and even more bat$hit crazy Stalinist as Speaker.
“Me too. I was kinda hoping theyd put up OcASSia-Pendeja.”
That would be popcorn worthy for sure. I have a feeling that young lady is about to get a crash course in what the political pecking order is in DC and find out she’s barely on the bottom rung. lol
“Trump said Pelosi deserves it.”
That was a great line wasn’t it?
Yes but I think if the Republicans see she is not going to win, I think some of them will vote for her to keep her in place. She does bring in donations for Republicans.
Doesn’t matter who runs the Demorats. WE control the vertical. We control the horizontal.
Bring on Occasional-Cortex.
Not to worry. Trump promised that Republicans would give Scarface the votes she needs to become Speaker.
If she gets back in as Speaker, she will go on a revenge trip on those 32. St. Valentines Day massacre in the House. Nancy Capone.
I had never realized that the incoming freshman representatives have no vote over who will be their leadership, at least in the Donk party.
Talk about trying to control from beyond the grave!
