Defiant Nancy Pelosi says she's not going anywhere

"It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans if she steps down".

The RPOF wants to establish similar clubs in every county, she said.

So far in 2017, despite the pipe-dreams of the Democrat Party leadership and the hopeful predictions of the Trump-hating media, Republicans are 4-0 in special House elections.

"When he found out that, I, you know, that there may be tapes out there, whether it's governmental tapes or anything else, and who knows, I think his story may have changed", Trump said.

"We don't agonize, we organize", she concluded. Thus did Democrats sharply cut the Republicans' 2016 margins in Kansas and Montana districts earlier this year. Pelosi, in an effort to mute grumbling over her poor leadership, crosses that line. "I think that in certain areas, like in some of these special-election districts, it doesn't benefit our candidates to be tied to her".

The president made his remarks during a Fox interview that aired in the United States on Friday, but was recorded on Thursday just hours after he tweeted that he did not, in fact, have tapes. "So, we are paving a way for a new generation of leadership". But there's a pattern and pace to the democratic process that comes in the form of regularly scheduled national elections, like the one to be held in November 2018.

HuffPost senior politics editor Sam Stein asked Rice if she believed Pelosi to be an 'out-of-touch San Francisco liberal, ' which is the way Republicans have portrayed the top House Democrat in political attack ads. Some are calling Pelosi's leadership "toxic", or saying "you'd have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top".

President Donald Trump weighed in on the internal Democratic power struggle on Thursday, tweeting, "I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out". Besides, a Republican's or an Independent's antipathy for President Trump doesn't convert them into Democrats. After Republican Karen Handel's victory in a House special election on Tuesday in the Atlanta suburbs, Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, declared, "Our brand is worse than Trump". She can even argue, like she did on Thursday, that she was instrumental in getting the Democrats back into the House majority in 2006 after 12 years of Republican rule. Ossoff was easily attacked as a callow creation of the resistance and a would-be foot soldier for Nancy Pelosi.

Commenting on the Democrats' electoral failure in the South this week, which included a South Carolina House race, Hot Air blogger Andrew Malcolm observed that one-third of Pelosi's 193 House Democrats now come from just three states, "the usual liberal suspects of California, New York and MA, not the crucial Heartland".

"They always want to choose our leaders", Pelosi said Thursday. I thrive on competition, and I welcome the discussion. Usually, these kinds of intra-party leadership challenges don't end well for the challenger: when a couple of conservative Republicans sought to run against Speaker John Boehner in January 2015, they only received 25 votes between them.

"I don't think anybody's fighting back".

In the aftermath of the 2016 election, several progressive Democratic groups formed to support millennial-aged candidates running for public offices across the country. I mean the whole thing is ridiculous, if you want to know the truth, from that standpoint.

"Right now, what I'm pushing for is a conversation within the caucus", Rice said. Prior to his recent interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Bloomberg has said that the incumbent president has 55 percent chance of winning the next Presidential Election.
