Another leadership test for Pelosi, who's weathered many

I thrive on competition; and I welcome the discussion.

Kathleen Rice (D-NY) said that although current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had been a great speaker, her time had "come and gone" as the leader of the Democratic caucus in the House. Democrats have to pick up 24 House seats to get back into power.

Gingrich was referring to ads run by a GOP super political action committee (PAC) that linked since-defeated Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff, who fell to Karen Handel, to Pelosi.

Pelosi beat back a leadership challenge late a year ago from Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), with two-thirds of her caucus supporting her. "We are the party that stands up for working families and the middle class, yet many of them are not voting for us". That's why it needs to fall on her close friends- people like Nita Lowey, Rosa DeLauro and Jan Schakowsky need to talk to her because that's what friends do (well, maybe not Schakowsky: she's detached from reality also because she holds a grudge against Steny Hoyer for being a moderate 30 years ago when he had a competitive district- but guess what Jan, Hoyer wouldn't be replacing Pelosi anyway).

Some of the Democrats' suggesting Pelosi should move on have recently argued that the Republican attack ads linking Democratic candidates to her are an effective campaign tool, and could hurt the party's chances to flip control of the House in the 2018 midterms. "Well, I'm a master legislator".

In retort Thursday, Pelosi said, "I think I'm worth the trouble, quite frankly".

"I think it's very concerning that that tactic still has some punch", Ryan said. But their reluctance left Ossoff running on a milquetoast message, allowing Republicans to drive the narrative that he would be a Pelosi lackey on Capitol Hill. In 1992 - after three presidential elections in which the GOP won 133 of 150 states - the centrist ticket of Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton and Tennessee Sen. And on Thursday, she revealed that she's considered passing the torch on multiple occasions. Mitt Romney, conversely, had taken 61% four years earlier, In a race where spending topped $50 million, Handel defeated Ossoff 52-48%. But it should be a wake-up call to Democrats that a heavily Republican district in SC made up of mostly working-class whites living in rural areas nearly flipped on Tuesday.

A handful of Democrats in the House have suggested that Pelosi vacate the top post, as Republicans expertly tied Ossoff to the California Democrat, which likely helped him lose the race.

'We know know exactly how to run against a Nancy Pelosi-led party, ' he continued.

Some Democrats are blaming Pelosi for the "loss" in Georgia, but it was actually not a loss at all, according to the math. I'm a strategic, politically astute leader.

"We don't agonize, we organize", she concluded. Years later, it was Pelosi, Obama and then-top Senate Democrat Harry Reid.

And for some, they point to questions about how their leaders, and Pelosi in particular, have fallen short in crafting an economic message that can counter Trump and yield election victories.

"I love the fray".

'I do not believe she is an out-of-touch San Francisco liberal, ' Rice replied. 'No, that's not fair, ' Rice said.

Rather than resist, the Democrats should desist-from overreacting to every tweet from the Oval Office and from trying to push their unmodified agenda. "I think she's the most capable leader that we have and I can't imagine anyone else who could do such an important job and do it so well".
