But in January shell need closer to 218 votes, half the full 435-seat House, if all Republicans vote against her, as is likely though she could win with fewer votes if some lawmakers are absent or vote present.

We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it
President Trump says she deserves it, thats good enough for me. :)
After she does not receive enough votes, another candidate for speaker will emerge and the wicked Witch will melt away
Republicans will probably Vote Pelosi as Speaker .....
Good thinking as she’s a scab on the Democratic Party...... and easy for Trump to pick off.
But the biggie is......she’ll owe Trump bigtime.
Speaker needs to sign off on any Democrat action against Trump.
And Pelosi will honor such a “bargin”?
I am sure Pelosi would cut such a deal to return to the speakership if her return was threatened. (Again afterward - Deal? What deal?)
The anti-Pelosi Rat forces are no threat. She is Speaker without Trump’s help.
Every single Republican needs to vote for this insane, botox-filled nimcompoop. It would be fabulous.
She’s the perfect example of the RAT side of the UniParty...well, except maybe for the MadMaxipad.
Make her the Poster Gal of the RAT side of the UniParty.
Be careful what you wish for.
In January 2008, when I went to vote in the NH primary, I switched my registration on the way in from (R) to (D) so I could vote for Barack Hussein Obama, reasoning that he would be the easiest Democrat to beat, and I switched back to (R) on the way out the door (I don't know if this is still allowed).
Anyway, Obama finished much stronger than expected, and the rest is history.
Just because Pelosi (and Biden) seem absurd to us, that does not mean they are not dangerous.
So its YOUR fault that we had to suffer BHO for eight years!
No problem, we will get the votes through vote harvesting!! That way, if she loses, she can win three weeks later!!
All the pubbies should line up behind NY 14 Alexandria Occasional-Kotex.
Oh please, you talk like she has some power. She doesnt--even as Speaker.
Donald will walk all over the "Dem (cough) majority."
Nancy is putty in his hands......Donald knows where the weaknesses are.....and when to sink his teeth into them.
Nancy is salivating for the Speakership...she'll do anything to get it.
I could not, as a matter of principle, ever even imagine myself voting for a Democrat. There is no strategy or plan worth me compromising that fundamental position.
Sure, living around Boston means that I lose a lot at election time, but voting for a Democrat is simply a bridge too far for me.
Do the Russians want SanFranNan as Speaker? All who vote for her need to be indicted for collusion! Pronto. Where is Schiff?
At the end of the day San Fran Nan will be able to buy this.
I hope you’re right! However I don’t see it! Peolosi may be a deranged dementia sufferer but her staff/handlers aren’t!
What I see is the best that happens is nothing!
Nothing gets done!
I don’t see how Trump stops an impeachment vote. The House can do what it wants. Where’s his leverage to stop that? Magic? Many of those clowns were elected to do just that! When all is said and done it will be stopped in the Senate but they’ve done what they want to do. They’ve branded Trump with a “scarlet I”. Now they have their equivalence with Slick! I don’t see how he stops that with a straight party line vote. Simple majority is all the Rats need! They have that or there wouldn’t be a Speaker Pelosi! Is that the deal he cuts with Pelosi? GOP votes for Speaker if no impeachment vote. She won’t honor that! I don’t see what he offers them?
Again two years of stalemate is the highest probability of what we get!
Trump should ask McCarthy to endorse her
She will screw things up.
It was a primary vote, part of Rush’s Operation Chaos.
Of course I voted for McCain in November.
