  • o promised open door policies as the House re-elects behind closed doors

      Obviously the dems are still clueless because they keep on keepin' being dumb.

      House Democrats elected Nancy Pelosi to remain as their leader Wednesday despite massive party losses in this month's congressional elections that prompted some lawmakers to call for new leadership. Pelosi, the nation's first female House speaker, will become minority leader when Republicans assume the majority in the new Congress in January.

      She defeated moderate Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler of North Carolina, 150-43, in secret balloting in a "LENGTHY CLOSED-DOOR' gathering of House Democrats in the Capitol.

      Pelosi, 70, overcame a rebellion from party centrists, and even some fellow liberals, who argued that the party needs to offer a new face of leadership after losing at least 60 House seats on Nov. 2. She remains popular among the liberals who dominate the party's House caucus. But Shuler's level of support plus an earlier 129-68 vote against postponing the election that Pelosi wanted to wrap up quickly underscored the degree of discontent in a party that Pelosi had largely bended to her will in the past four years.
