    If you are on the right...Pelosi staying on as minority leader is one of the best things that could happen for the 2012 elections.

    Pelosi as minority leader is to the right what Palin on the '12 GOP ticket is to the left.

    If I had anything to say about it looking at all of the opposition to her from the right, she would stay.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    why is that? are you saying that simply because the right opposes her she is a good choice? Isn't that the same logic that some on the right use to defend Palin? ie, the other side hates her so she must be good for our side?

    There could be a benefit in a new Democratic leader in that there is a great deal of narrative investment in Pelosi by the Republicans. It will take a great deal of time to work up the same level of animus from their supporters in someone else. I think that is why they were so upset during the Democratic primary of 2008; they had a lot built up in the Hillary Bank and wanted her as a Democratic candidate. The new guy threw them for a loop.

    The difference is that Pelosi,s work is a known. Whereas Palins is…well, a quitter after, what,six months?

    using that logic...everyone should have voted for McCain, whose work was known, over Obama who had a couple months under his belt.

    Re: Should Pelosi Remain Dem Minority Leader in The House?

    Personally, I would be happy for Nancy Pelosi if she chose to retire; she's a wealthy woman, she doesn't need the constant demands on her time that comes with national political leadership. I think she's concluded that the Democratic caucus can still benefit significantly from her leadership and I think she's right. She's been a great leader, the most effective Speaker in decades, her achievements are important milestones that will influence American life for the better for many decades to come. Conservatives demonize her but they wouldn't bother if she hadn't been so extraordinarily successful in promoting the progressive agenda. God bless, Nancy Pelosi!

    That is why we had the election,58,343,671 people looked at the maverick’s work and said that looks good to me. 66,882,230 decided, no thanks.

    Nancy Pelosi is a hypocrite. She has pulled the Democrat party farther left and silenced the moderates within her party. She herself is very left wing and many Americans oppose her. If she still choses to run I will see it as her power grab and refusal to step down and acknowledge that Americans dislike her. She would sacrifice her party in order to keep her power.
