On Pelosi a very partisan friend of mine recently said that he hoped the current minority leader in the House stayed in leadership as he was quite pleased with her performance over the last 8 years. She’s been pretty darn good for Republicans.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Ohio congressman who is vying to topple longtime House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday that his colleagues understand that regaining the majority requires a “new message and a new messenger,” someone who is able to connect with voters in the middle of the country who abandoned the party in this month’s elections.
Rep. Tim Ryan said Pelosi isn’t a shoo-in for re-election, given the “consternation in our caucus” following election results that handed the White House to Republicans, who also kept control of the House and Senate. Ryan said he has a “shot to win” when House Democrats meet Wednesday to choose their leaders for the new session of Congress that opens in January
“We’re making a hell of a run at this thing,” Ryan, 43, said on “Fox News Sunday.”
