Sixteen Democrats Sign Letter Vowing to Vote Against Nancy Pelosi's Bid To Become Speaker Again

A candidate for Speaker of the House needs 218 votes. Assuming all Republicans vote against Nancy Pelosi (an assumption we shouldn't make, because Trump claims he'll get Republicans to vote for Pelosi), then she can only afford to lose 15 Democrat votes out of the 233 they have.

Sixteen Democrats signed a letter stating they will vote against Pelosi, and three other Democrats have vowed to vote against her previously.

So unless Trump actually does convince Republicans to vote for Pelosi -- which would make her Speakership illegitimate to many Democrats (whoopsie) -- she can't win at the moment.

The point of getting her the post again would be to maintain her as the face of the Democratic Party for as long as possible.

She's electoral poison for Democrats in swing districts (at least historically).

+1000.

Here's the correct strategy, the ones the Dems use, and it's something the debate-club Right isn't really capable of.

Step 1 is the intellectual part, and happens behind closed doors. Settle on a damned governing strategy, for G-d's sake. Figure out where you want to take the initiative, and on what policies, and then demand pain-of-political-death Party discipline from all elected officials and Party proxies. No deviation from the plan in front of the public.

Step 2 is not even discussing specifics of the plan with the public. This is where the emotion comes in. Attack the Left, insult them, ridicule them, demonize them. Trump is good at this. At the same time, underscore your own connection to the voters at an emotional level. That you like them, care about them, and that your policies (such as they know about them) are conceived with their best interests at heart. Limbaugh is very good at this part.

Nothing in the Constitution that dictates it must be a member of the House.

That's why you had a handful of Republicans voting for Allen West (long after he left Congress) and Sarah Palin in the voting.

Still, ask leadership to whip for someone outside the House instead of one of their own and see how that works.

Apparently the Speaker's office is the best office in the Capitol.

Let's also not forget that, if such is the way they want to play the game, "we" (not "me", per se) can play that game too.

in other words, just because the top two pieces get toppled doesn't mean the next piece will stay standing too.

I don't want to play that game, but it is a game whose moves must be considered.

This is what I was wondering. I thought that Pelosi was like an old appliance, fizzling out but periodically functional, whereas Occasional was more like a lump of granite, completely nonfunctional. Therefore it would be better to have Occasional as the new speaker.

But if the script is completely outside their hands as regards legislation and priorities, then it probably makes no difference which one of them is speaker.

116 I hope the Democrats select Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She can't even name the three branches of government that I learned about in third grade civics. She's more useless than tits on a boar hog and dumber than a bag of hammers.

She'd be an excellent foil for Trump and would ensure that the GOP would take back the House in 2020. Maybe the GOP should vote for her to ensure this delicious outcome.

Pelosi wouldn't be as fun, but she'd still be an excellent radical foil for Trump. My fear is they'll vote for someone reasonable who doesn't screech like a bloodthirsty Marxist harpie.

well, first of all, I am not one of the ones here that fantasizes about the romance of armed conflict or some split of the country. this is my country, I want it all, and I do not want to be responsible for its dissolution.

second, the majority of the middle does not have any fixed beliefs, politically, one way or the other, they can be swayed. the are most easily swayed by emotion but it is not lasting.

third, having spent the majority of my adulthood surrounded by and interacting with those who identify as liberal and democrat, I will assure you that they have a bit of a cognitive dissonance. frequently they will advocate one thing politically and another personally. for instance what they advocate for other people's kids in public school is not what they implement with their own kids.

I have had quite a lot of success explaining my position on conservatism and the Constitution simply asking them which of the contracts they have signed wold they like to be a living document with words and obligations that are able to be redefined at someone's whim. that argument does not instantly persuade everyone but it definitely sticks. more than half of the people I have had that discussion with have come back to me at some point to rehash the argument with me. they are not all instantly swayed, but the fact the it stays with them suggests they are not entirely unthinking and set in their positions.

lots of people in blue states and cities are more like us than unlike us.

It's a win-win for him. He gets to appear magnanimous and make deals with the opposing side, the far left goes absolutely nuts over it, and if Pelosi starts doing anything too crazy, he threaten her with losing the Speakership by losing Republican support.

That is power in politics, and it's invested in a proven money raiser.

It's one reason Paul Ryan never got successfully toppled, because he was good at raising money.

And it's not just money, but the fact that that money raised helped elect many members of Congress. Those who know that their wins in tight races were partially due to the leadership's largess will find it harder to vote against the leadership's wishes.

Exactly. The smart play for the R's is to vote as a block for the most conservative republican knowing he'll never get the nod. Then in 18 months they can go back to their district and say how Tea Party conservative they are (even though it is a complete lie), and not be tarred in anyway with whomever becomes speaker.

I think they were hoping that anti-Trump sentiment would prove as strong as the 2008 Obama-love and they honestly thought that UVA students in particular would be thrilled with Cockburn.

Putting a fresh(er) face as Speaker could give that person enough momentum to potentially unite the Democrats before an ugly primary season disenfranchises a bunch of activist voters.

And listen guys, just because you see how stupid Occasional Cortex is doesn't mean she won't be able to dupe a whole shitload of people into believing her vapid lies.
