1. She's former CIA, so this sounds like a great choice and opportunity for her.

2. I would have guessed with her background, she would have landed on the Intelligence Committee.

But as it is, she got a good assignment for her.

4. Pelosi Doesn't Hold Grudges - A Good Trait in an Effective Leader

Spanberger was a member of the original anti-Pelosi brigade. I donated to her campaign before learning that she had said she wouldn't vote for Pelosi as Speaker.

5. Exactly! Just thought I'd

mention the irony.

Nancy and most of us know that some of our Blue Wave Winners had to promise not to vote for her.. bc the gop spent Millions of $$$$$$ and many years Lying and Hatemongering on her.

And, look at her now.. all that time and gop money down the drain.

8. Nancy understood some freshmen had to play their districts.

Rice, on other hand, has been a longstanding pain in the ass.

7. :) Great! Also, Katie Hill, 31, Elijah Cummings' new VICE CHAIR

of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Also on the environmental subcommittee. Outstanding! She'll be the committee's liaison with the Democratic leadership and is one of five freshmen who'll be helping make history. Katie Hill also used 11th Hour tonight to announce her endorsement of fellow Californian Kamala Harris for president.
