    Nancy Pelosi's Democratic Foes Think They Have The Votes To Block Her

    Nancy Pelosi’s bid to become House speaker again is running up against dueling realities: One reality is that she is the most capable Democrat in the House, confident the party’s gains were significant enough to propel her to the speakership, and another reality is that about two dozen Democrats are prepared to block her from the spot.Neither scenario seems entirely right or entirely wrong.
    Pelosi continues to express optimism that she can outmaneuver any contingent of Democrats standing in her way from once again ascending from minority leader to speaker. She’s wooing freshman Democrats, showing up to orientation sessions, hosting dinner receptions and making friends.
    But there’s confidence from Pelosi’s detractors that she doesn’t have the votes.
    Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) told reporters Tuesday night that he was “100 percent” confident there were enough votes to block Pelosi ― more than 20 ― during a speaker floor vote. He said the anti-Pelosi members planned to release a letter demonstrating to Pelosi that she doesn’t have the votes, at which point they expect other Democrats to step up and run for the speaker position.
    Moulton said the members, led by less than a dozen existing Representatives and some incoming Democrats who have said they won’t support Pelosi, are figuring out when to release the letter ― “we’re going to see what makes the most sense” ― but they plan to do it before the caucus votes for its leaders behind closed doors at the end of November.

    LOL... if the Democrats don't want her to be Speaker, every Republican should vote for her.

    He wants her as speaker because she is a disaster for the Demoncrats, that is why they don't want her and why fedup and I agree that the Republicans should supply any votes needed.

    I still can't get over the fact that the American people elected a troll for president. I find it hilarious.

    It's long past time, our enemies need to be trolled good and hard and Americans have always had an excellent sense of humor.

    Perhaps he is the first President to truly reflect the American character.

    It is OK to not give a $#@!. This baffles commies to no end when they try to pimp foreign poverty.

    Trump's troll game is untouchable.

    As for me, on the one hand, Pelosi is about as likable as a tsetse fly. On the other hand, a real leftist as speaker would really get Americans up close and personal with the appetites of these people, and that can only be bad for them.

    Let them think they have power while they don't quite have it yet and see how they behave. I am sure people will be excited.
