8. The only "reason" was that the GOP was running ads

trying to tie Dem candidates to the "liberal Pelosi". The Dem candidates' opposition was merely a campaign self-preservation move. And Pelosi was ok with that.

I called my new congressman-elect's office and let them know I voted for him and if decides not to vote for Pelosi, he might not get my vote again in 2 years. I seriously do doubt that anyone who voted for a Dem house candidate did so because of a candidates' commitment not to support Pelosi.

Obviously Dems need a transition plan with a younger crowd. The leadership can't all be in their late 70s. From a Pennsylvania perspective, I wouldn't mind seeing Dwight Evan brought into the leadership circle. Evans was the top Dem on the state house appropriations committee and plenty of state legislative leadership experience. There's a couple of more Bob Casey type reps like Mike Doyle and Brendan Boyle, too.
