Skip to comments.Nancy Pelosi's core support strong despite loss

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi maintained solid support among her core backers in the California delegation Thursday as she considered whether to run for minority leader or step down from the leadership, and probably leave Congress, after a devastating rout Tuesday that cost Democrats their majority.
Pelosi, 70, won re-election to the seat she has held in San Francisco since 1987 with 80 percent of the vote despite having mounted no campaign against a spirited and well-financed challenge at home by libertarian Republican John Dennis. Instead, she spent her colossal energy helping Democrats across the country.
Loyalty to Pelosi and admiration for her legislative skill remained as powerful as ever among liberals who blame President Obama for not being forceful enough. If she has rivals, they have not unmasked themselves. If any harbor ambitions to fill her place should she step aside, they have not said so, a telltale sign of her power.
Pelosi remained mum about her plans Thursday.

Good. She’s the perfect Evil Hag Witch to be the Face of Progressivism in America. She and her Ghoul-Buddy Harry.
Now that's just dripping with irony even though none was intended.
Liberal Elitist Bitches everywhere are loyal to their heroine.
I'm doubtful she could become an honest person; the Botox is more than skin deep, she petrified her coscience and soul as well.
You misspelled heroin...
She hasn’t finished the job..the GOP can gain another 30 seats in 2012 if she stays on..
A true icon of Rigid Marxist Philosophy. How much easier it will be for us in 2012 if the Witch stays in front of the cameras.
Pelosi probably has the votes to stay on as Minority Leader, if she wants the gig. But she'd have opposition, and it could get ugly. Ugly, in this case, would be fun. A circular firing squad, perhaps. The shrunken band of liberals is likely to get more bitter, more defiant, more noisy, and more irrelevant.
“....Pelosi maintained solid support among her core backers in the California...”
Maggots still pleased over rotting flesh left near sewer.....
Pelosi remained mum about her plans until the meetings with Reid and Obama are over,here comes a newer faster and improved con game look out.
The entire Bay Area needs to be nuked.
Thank you for sharing that.
I agree, although she (thankfully) won't be as prominent.
And lucky for us that Dingy Harry Reid "won" his seat in NV. His is the face that Tea Partiers/conservatives/GOP must highlight every single day for the '12 elections. Play up his fraud in this election because we all know that that race was not kosher.
Election 2010 was great, but it was only a start. Tons of work remains to be done.
At 8% approval? Fine. May be bask in the glow of such deep appreciation.
The Party Chairman usually is popular.
