    I am quite sure the Republicans will tell us to dislike, say, Cory Booker and Chuck Schumer and John Hickenlooper and any other Democrat you would care to name, but I don't dislike any of those fellows. Shrug. Nor do I dislike, say, Dianne Feinstein.

    Pelosi may not be America's sweetheart, but she knows how to count votes.
    Yes, she does. But note that I was not questioning her political acumen.

    Frankly, I haven't seen a right-wing media campaign waged against any of those politicians that compare to the character assassination waged against Clinton and Pelosi.

    What is it about Pelosi that you dislike? Her age? Her looks? She was the most effective Speaker of the House to have ever held the office.

    Her personality, I guess. She comes off as a bit screechy, in a way that, for example, Dianne Feinstein simply does not. Shrug.

    To me she clearly has the experience and knowledge to get things done. She also is fairly level headed and moderate considering the district she represents. Currently she really seems to want to play up policy and not deal in what ifs. She also is one of the best at knowing where and how to raise money. However, I do think there are some who want young blood and I get that. I know I hear republicans say the same with McConnell. I dont know if its whats best, but if there is even a fraction of voters out there who view her in the same vein as Hillary, then thats probably enough to consider a change.

    I think I have a pretty good 'feel' for what the typical voter in Colorado is thinking, and although Hillary won Colorado handily----because Colorado is definitely NOT 'Trump country'----many people in Colorado probably look at Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton as 'the two wicked witches'.

    I just think some people refuse to understand what happened in 2016 and why. There are players out there that voters have heard over the years that are just awful, wicked, nasty etc and they dont know why. They just dont trust them. I have an old friend I used to work with and we get together ever other month or so. She is a lifelong democrat and wants Hillary to run again in 2020. She thinks the third time will be the charm. She just doesnt see why not. I just shake my head.

    There are married women out here in Colorado who just flat out REFUSED to vote for Hillary but who also wouldn't vote for Trump. I think they just sat out the election. When asked why they wouldn't vote for Hillary, they couldn't even articulate good reasons for WHY they disliked her, but they made it rather obvious that they thought she should have DIVORCED Bill when the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke back in the 1990's.........

    I know I will be slammed, but I think women are harder on other women than men. With men, even some women will look past certain things or write it off. With another woman, they scrutinize every detail. I have seen and experienced it in the work place where some women loathe having a female boss. For some maybe its jealousy or conservatism, but for others it was "she is like me and wont let me get away with it." So its one of those things whenever a woman runs for president, she is taken to the mat even if they dont know why.

    A Houston Congressman on Monday took exception to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's comments in Dallas opposing impeachment of President Donald Trump.

    Democratic Rep. Al Green said in a statement that Trump is "the quintessential person that impeachment was designed for," no matter what Pelosi thinks.

    Green led a push to impeach the president last year. But Pelosi, the former House speaker, told The Dallas Morning News' editorial board on Friday that while she loved Green, she wishes he'd back off. "We have elections," Pelosi said Friday. "Go vote if it's a policy thing and a behavior thing. I don't know if you can get impeached for being a jerk, but if we did, this guy would be long gone. But that's not unifying." Talking about impeachment at this point, Pelosi said, is a gift to Republicans in the midterm elections.

    But Green said in his statement Pelosi was "trivializing" Trump's behavior. "He is the most powerful person on Earth," he said. "His hateful, harmful tweets can, and have become policy. His words can move markets. He's not just some 'jerk,' he's the President of the United States with a bigoted policy agenda." Green's impeachment efforts have so far failed overwhelmingly in the House.

    I hate to agree with Mrs. Pelosi about anything... but in this instance she is correct. Offering up impeachment as a response to tweets you don't like is extremely stupid and makes a mockery of our system of government. When you trek so far into loony liberal democrat land that even someone like Pelosi won't follow you that's when you know you've officially lost your mind. Though TDS insanity seems like a winning trait with democrats these days, so who knows - it might actually help him.
