Just having a vagina isn't PC enough any more in the Identitarian party.  How about Ocasio Cortez as speaker?  Smiley  As Beavis and Butthead used to say, that would be cool! 

"Hey, like I don't understand all this parliamentary procedure stuff, so can we just vote for socialism?  Everyone in favor just say aye! aye!, or whatever."

Ho hum.

No matter who the Dems choose as speaker, they have a clear majority in the House and can exercise that power to further their positive agenda, and to block Todt's destructive agenda. They can also investigate his finances and possible corruption in office.

Basically it's like having 222 adults in the room, making adult decisions.

Finally.

Anything they vote on, unless they compromise with the republicans, will get slapped down in the senate.  Meanwhile Trump will go ahead with lots of his agenda with executive orders.  He may get to appoint another young conservative USSC justice, shutting that down as a liberal legislative body for a generation.  That only has to be approved by the republican senate.  Likewise treaties.  Meanwhile, he can at long last appoint an attorney general who can go after Hillary for arranging the fake dossier and revealing secret documents.  Also probably a lot of deep state slimes.  The house of representatives has limited investigatory powers, but Trump can sick the FBI on the deep state scum.  Grin

- this is about Pelosi - how does she get votes for Speaker when many more Dems than the margin of majority said they won't vote for her? - over 20 Dems in swing districts- if they vote for her don't they lose their seats next election having lied to voters?

- what if Republicans vote for a moderate Dem or a crazy radical Dem so the Dem Speaker owes their position to Republicans

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
Nov 7
"In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!"
twitter.com

- interesting - would Repubs give her votes?

Trumpublicans will do whatever Trump tells them to do.  If Pelosi's only path to the gavel is to cavort with Trumpublicans, then Trump will clear the way.  He is clearly very anxious to get her as his opponent in congress.

I dearly hope there is a battle for the speakership, and that somebody else wins.
