Comments |
Nov 18, 2010 — Nancy Pelosi's negatives place her in the neighborhood of the unpopular Tom DeLay and John Edwards, according to Nate Silver of the FiveThirtyEight blog. That's fairly shocking for an active party leader.

Nov 17, 2010 — Nancy Pelosi, as expected, was once again elected to lead the Democrats in the House.  But this time the Democrats will be in the minority.  And 43 of her Democratic colleagues voted against her.
