Another leadership test for Pelosi, who's weathered many

"And I think if we would have put a few more resources, not even that many, but a few more, we would have been able to get the 3,000 votes". My leadership is recognized by many around the country. (R-Ga.). In essence, she isn't a political newcomer and the fact that Democrats actually believed they could flip a district that has gone Republican for almost four decades purely because of Trump's actions shows how out of touch their strategy is.

And Politico looks at the questions being raised about the leadership of Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

They point to crumbling special election margins in once-safe Republican seats, big Democratic leads on generic ballot polls, a president whose approval rating hovers around 40 percent and a GOP healthcare bill that's even less popular as factors that will only boost their candidates in 2018. It was the most expensive House race in history.

Not only did the Democrats waste all that money, but they did so with a candidate who did not live in the district and who campaigned like a moderate Republican. "But we don't agonize, we organize - organize inside the House and mobilize outside for the good of the American people", she wrote. In her comments, Pelosi was keen to underline that in 2006, she secured a Democratic majority in the House for the first time in over a decade.

Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., who supported Ryan's leadership bid, tweeted Wednesday that Jon Ossoff had to spend time and money "defending against attacks on our party leadership" despite Trump's unpopularity. "I thrive on competition". Her leadership team is composed of South Carolina's James Clyburn, who is 76, and Steny Hoyer, who is 78.

In the face of some fellow Democrats called for her to step down following a major defeat in a special election Tuesday, Pelosi proudly touted her effectiveness, saying she was "a master legislator" and a "strategic, politically astute leader".

"I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out".

Yes, while nearly all other Democrats and liberals are in a mournful mood, Yglesias is out there enthusiastically shaking his pom-poms with his laughable analysis in which he determines yet more bad news for Republicans.

Pelosi brushed off the tweet, contending that Trump hadn't actually written it himself because "it's a classic Republican line".

The GOP's demonization efforts are so effective that the simple fact that Democratic leaders are so hated by Republican voters is seen by Democrats themselves as reason enough to dump them. Numerous criticisms of Hillary Clinton uttered during the Democratic primary campaign by Bernie Sanders and others traced their lineage to Republican condemnations against her and her husband that had been first trotted out in the 1990s. Democrats may say the race should not have been that close, but the reality is spending that much money to drive out 100 percent of Democrats plus some anti-Trump Republicans cost them $30 million they now can not spend elsewhere.

"I think I'm worth the trouble".

GREENE: Just in 15, 20 seconds - is your criticism, in some ways, about challenging House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who you challenged for a job last time?

Pelosi also incorrectly predicted that Democrats were poised to take back the House a year ago, leading some of her colleagues to feel that this time around, she needs to deliver. But Pelosi maintained that familiar GOP strategy only proves she is an asset. "So, I feel like it's those rank and file Democratic union members that voted Democrat for a generation all of a sudden said 'you guys aren't really fixing my issue for me, you know, you're not making my life necessarily easier, you're not making things better'".
