WASHINGTON POST: House Democrats Scramble To Avoid Post-Election Revolt Against Pelosi.

House Democrats close to Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are circulating a letter within the Democratic Women’s Caucus pledging support for the California Democrat to remain House Democratic leader amid growing frustration at the party’s disastrous showing in Tuesday’s election.

The letter, written by Rep. Doris Matsui (D-Calif.), says that Pelosi helped Democrats achieve “historic progress in the lives of women, workers, students, veterans, seniors and LGBT Americans,” according to a copy of it obtained by the Washington Post. As of Friday afternoon 40 of the 54 women had signed the letter, according to aides. . . .

Rank-and-file House Democrats are angry with leaders at every level of the party and want to see blanket changes to Democrats’ message, approach and leadership structure, according to many aides. A growing number of young and recently elected House Democrats want term limits for committee leaders and are pushing to elect at least one reform-minded member to their official leadership ranks.

The only open seat within Democrats’ ranks is Vice Chair of the caucus, the fifth position in the leadership slate. The race pits Congressional Hispanic Caucus chair Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) against Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), the former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Well, I think one of them should replace Nancy Pelosi. I understand from Samantha Bee that white women are the worst.
