Nancy has served her country proud. But, I think it is time she retire and let someone else take up her fight. At 72, she looks done in.

One of the Top 10 most ruinous politicians of my lifetime. If I could invent from scratch a divisive, corrosive, entitled, misguided, manipulative and angry politician, Pelosi would be my prototype.

We have to pass it to find out what's in it. That will be her legacy - how she helped destroy America. Still does not know what's in it.

I'm glad. She will then be in the spotlight as our nation begins to burn in large part due to her, Obama, Biden, and Reid.

People forget how bad things were with her as Speaker. The last 2 years of Bush & the first 2 years of Obama the Democrats held the majority in the house and the senate. That was the beginning of the end for the US.

She needs to step down as she is too polarizing, becoming a Republican rally cry. Michelle Bachmann ran her campaign against Pelosi, not Graves, and won enough votes. Henry Waxman would be a better choice.

As a centrist Democrat I sincerely think it's time for Pelosi to move on. I also hope that the body she wants to represent wants new leadership at the top. If we as a country want to meet somewhere in the middle and find compromise to move this country forward I believe moving away from Pelosi is a step in the correct direction for the country.

While I am happy that the prez is re-elected and, for now, the gop has been slapped back, I don't believe Pelosi is the best person for this job. I saw her too many times as unnecessarily combative and lacking restraint. We need moderates back in government or the country is going down for the count. I hope she is not put back into this position...
