If we can flip the House, and impeach Trump AND Pence in one fell swoop, we've got ourselves a female POTUS.

Hmmmm!

I REALLY don't want to say more. I admire her and I want her as our minority leader. If you don't agree, well whatever.

I'd like to know why anyone would object to alternative options.

Tim Ryan is running.

'Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) talks to Rachel Maddow about challenge Rep. Nancy Pelosi for House Minority Leader. Ryan talked about the direction he thinks the Democrats should take going forward.

"We need to represent the entire party and these working class people rely on us," Ryan said Thursday night. We need a strong Democratic Party in the United States and right now, you know, we're reeling."

"We've got to talk about the future," he said. "And I think we are going to have to win 30 or 40 congressional districts in the southern part of the country, in red congressional districts, southern Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan. We've got to win seats that are Upstate New York."'

Democrats surely must be able to open our minds.

Seems it was right before the destruction of Hillary Clinton began. I say, Leave Nancy Alone!

I like both of them, but I think it is time for new blood. I saw him on Rachel Maddow and was very impressed. We need to start looking at the future of the party and who can lead it.

“Ryan is a member of the "30 Something" Working Group,[7] which is a Congressional caucus that includes those members of the United States House of Representatives who are Democrats and have not yet reached the age of 40. It was organized by the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to energize and engage younger people in politics by focusing on issues that are important to them.[8]”

Also he is too conservative to me, does not signal new blood.

& I meant new blood as in he has not stepped forward in a national leadership role before. Most average voters from outside his district have never heard of him.

She has even FORCED THEM to come to heal. She is STRONG and that is what we need now that the Dems are in the minority.

Tim Ryan is not a leader .... YET.

Is as frustrated and angry as the rest of us. Trying to affect what he sees as change.
She will have the votes.
