    You guys fail to understand that the leadership of the House is not the same as the leadership of the whole party. House leadership exists to coordinate among the members of the party caucus to get compromises adopted so votes can be collected on bills. The person picked for that leadership role is usually most experienced in that skill. There is a separate process for identifying the head of the party itself; Howard Dean had been trying for that, but withdrew. So who knows who will end up with that thankless job. The Congresswoman from South Florida who had it previously was so vilified by the Socialist candidates backers that no one would want that job. Maybe Mitt Romney can take it, after Trump throws him away…

    David, I agree with you. Even after the election the party remains tone deaf and still calling the Trump campaign a racist platform run by white supremacist. I’m going to parrot a phrase by James Carville “It’s the economy stupid” that helped propel Bill Clinton into the White House.

    It is what it is. You can’t expect them NOT to respond when Trump is playing very obviously to neo-Nazi’s and white supremacists, and then puts their main enabler one door away from the oval office.

    Stand mute, that ain’t gonna happen.

    The Trump campaign was a racist platform run by a white supremacist.

    Are you arguing against facts or do you just want to pretend all Americans are blind?

    Yes, let’s let the Republicans tell us how to run our party. I’m sure they have our best interests at heart.

    One thing about Trump’s win: The rethugs might now realize why we call them stupid!

    To quote the great Will Rogers “I don’t belong to any organized political party. I’m a Democrat!” I love being a Dem because you never know what’s gonna happen next. t’s like a roller coaster ride.

    Nah.

    We understand.

    That’s her bus.

    “There is a separate process for identifying the head of the party itself; Howard Dean had been trying for that, but withdrew.”

    .

    A head implies a brain.

    Our party has no brain, no united purpose, no agreement on direction.

    .

    Nonetheless, the House of Representatives is the branch of government which is closest tied to the people, The Democratic Party thinks it is closer to the values and needs of the American people.

    Somehow, the American people come to doubt this fact.

    She lost me when she said “Impeachment is off the table.” Leadership would have at least exposed the lies from "W"s administration in an undeniable forum. Removal from office wasn’t necessary to wake the public, and Congress up to the risk and costs of lies. Well, Trump’s election does cast doubt on whether sanity and wakefulness is possible anymore.

    Because her behavior this time around is so likely to be different.

    There are many in the rank-and-file and leadership of the Republicans were against him. Some want to work with him to get legislation they haven’t been able to pass since 1973.

    .

    Hillary Clinton is yesterday’s news. So why are Republicans still talking about her? I’m not, never liked her for her Right Wing views and aping the language of Bernie Sanders who would have won against Trump didn’t help her either.

    @DavidHuieGreen

    Since the 1980’s the Democratic party joined the Republicans in being the party of Plutocrats. Only they did occasionally help the Middle Class and did little for the poor and newly poor.

    Right Wing Democrats want the same protection as the Republicans don’t they?
