An excerpt from Robert Novak's "Evans-Novak Political Report," an invaluable resource:
The latest miserable performance on NBC's "Meet the Press" by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has renewed talk in Democratic ranks about bouncing her from the leadership following the 2006 elections, whether the Democrats capture the House or not. We think it is just talk. Pelosi's gender protects her. The logical alternative, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), is such a personal foe of Pelosi that his accession would be too divisive.
FAIL UPWARD, SPEAKER PELOSI! NOT!
