Pelosi has been elected as Minority Leader




Here’s one bit of good news:

Despite the party’s drubbing in the midterm elections, Speaker Nancy Pelosi will remain the Democratic leader in the next Congress.

Members of the caucus voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to make Pelosi minority leader, brushing aside a challenge by Rep. Heath Shuler (N.C.), a Blue Dog Democrat who says Pelosi’s controversial public image and low approval ratings are a liability to Democrats looking ahead to 2012.

The tally was 150-43.

We know there are 43 dopes in the Democratic caucus. I’m sure they’re all getting talking points from Third Way.

Yes, the GOPers hate her. I’m sure none of that is misogyny, right? But, Pelosi is the only one in Democratic leadership who knows how to lead. Her caucus bore the brunt of the 2010 elections. But, she’s the only one who gives Capitol Hill Democrats a spine.
