Quote of the Day

Writing in today's New York Post, Michael Goodwin:

Obama's problems are magnified by Pelosi's daffy decision to try to become minority leader. Having led her House troops to a historic defeat, her announcement that "our work is not finished" reads like a parody.

Any more "work" of her kind and the country will be finished.

House minority leadership is pretty inconsequential, is it not? Only political insiders had any clue who Rep. Boehner was, which made their campaign to run against him pretty silly. I think a smaller, more insular, more collectivist Democratic House Caucus will be served well by Rep. Pelosi's leadership, And the GOP will be well served in 2012 running against her.

Minority leadership usually is inconsequential to the electorate, unless it is a high-profile personality with through-the-roof negatives.

Another money quote from Goodwin in the same article was this:

Because the president already ruled out dumping Joe Biden, the Dem lineup for 2012 is set: Obama, Biden, Pelosi and Reid. How's that for change?
