Palin, Bachman, O'Donnell, Fiorina, Whitman, Rice, and now Pelosi ... why does the left hate powerful women?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Nancy Pelosi is struggling to stand her ground as the effects of last week's Democratic debacle shift the political earth beneath her feet.

Pelosi announced Friday that she’s running for minority leader in the new Congress, and her election still seems on track. <span style='font-size: 11pt'>But a movement by conservative Blue Dogs to block her ascent has picked up support from some liberals and even a handful of longtime Pelosi allies</span>, who question whether she is the best person to lead the battered party in the House.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>At least 15 Democrats have said publicly that they have lost faith in her ability to lead — a number backed up by as many as two dozen more who are indicating the same thing privately, while others haven’t yet taken sides.</span>

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Liberal Reps. Peter DeFazio (Ore.) and Marcy Kaptur (Ohio) sent a letter to colleagues asking them to support a plan to forestall leadership elections until December — a clear effort to give the anti-Pelosi forces time to coalesce.</span> Democratic leaders plan to go forward with the leadership contests Nov. 17, according to sources familiar with a Wednesday afternoon conference call.

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>"Elections matter, and the messages they send matter,"</span> Kaptur told POLITICO Wednesday — though she declined to say whether she would vote for or against Pelosi.

Fellow Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, a longtime Pelosi ally and protege of former Pelosi confidant Rep. John P. Murtha, told the Youngstown Business Journal that he's not sure how long he needs to be loyal to the outgoing speaker.

"We had some really good, substantive things to talk about that we didn't talk about and there's plenty of blame to go around. She's obviously in charge so she needs to take the brunt of the responsibility for it," he said. "I was brought up to be loyal to people who helped you and I want to be — but at the expense of what? I think we have to sit down as a Democratic Caucus in D.C. and ask what direction are we going in."

<span style='font-size: 26pt'><span style='font-family: Arial Black'>Even the New York Times' editorial page has called on Pelosi to step aside.</span></span>

Why would any on the right possibly want anyone else as the face of the Democratic Party for 2012?

True. She might get rid of another 30 or 40 Dems in the house, given a couple more years!

Because the party has ordered them to walk off the cliff like lemmings.

Centrist dems from across the land were threatened that the party would abandon them come the campaign if they didn't vote for the regime's agenda ... and then they were abandoned anyways.

The democrooks have no more centrists. They are a smaller contingency in govt by far, but by betraying the centrists they have become even more far left than before as a whole.
