We have seen Nancy Pelosi’s America, and it contains, at most, about 190 House districts

If you’re wondering what sort of reception Speaker Pelosi is getting on the Right with her plans to run for House Minority Leader, just consider the endorsement she got on Twitter from conservative Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C.:

patrickmchenry: I endorse Nancy Pelosi for Minority Leader.

There should be extra joy now that it seems clear she will run unopposed. Per CNN’s Ed Henry:

@edhenrycnn: Just in: WH is going to look favorably on Pelosi’s bid for House Minority Leader

Talk about not getting it. Pelosi’s continuation in leadership would be about as good for her party as a Dick Cheney run for president would have been for the GOP in 2008. How could anyone think this is a good idea after an entire election cycle full of ads like this one?

We’re seeing the Democrats begin to re-marginalize themselves. Don’t they wish Rahm was back in D.C. now?
