Last hurrah for Nancy Pelosi?

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi would love to be majority leader again. But that is very unlikely to happen and is beyond her control.

The Romney-Ryan campaign will need to implode before control of the House is in question this year. Despite the trail of gaffes that the campaign has left behind, the Romney-Ryan ticket is still competitive. Even Democrats admit that Romney is resilient. Beside that, the problems now facing the Obama-Biden ticket make complete implosion unrealistic.

So, Pelosi is left with showing the flag and saying whatever she thinks will keep the Democratic faithful engaged and active.

Considering the rumblings among House Democrats who are unhappy with Pelosi’s leadership, this may be her last hurrah. Will congressional Democrats want a fresh face heading their House contingent when the new Congress convenes in January?
