CHANGE: Democrats Pressing Pelosi To Step Aside.

In a fresh sign of turmoil among defeated Democrats, a growing number of the rank and file say they won’t support House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a politically symbolic roll call when the new Congress meets in January.

“The reality is that she is politically toxic,” said Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley, one of several Democrats who are trying to pressure Pelosi to step aside as her party’s leader in the wake of historic election losses to Republicans last week.

I’d say that a majority of the Dems would like her gone, but most don’t want to openly oppose her unless they’re sure it’ll work. Meanwhile, the Republicans should hope that she stays as the face of the House Democrats . . . because she really is toxic, and not in that sexy, Britney Spears way . . . .
