    With as popular as this stimulus package is, and how low Congress' approval rating is...

    2010 might not be so pretty for democrats.

    She Represents San Francisco. They think she's correct on all this crap. She'll be in the house till hell freezes over or thatn 10.1 shoves San Francisco under Denver.

    Could be a change in the House Speaker position though if Pelosi and Obama don't patch things up. Real power struggle going on between those two.

    Pelosi is one of just a few who are actually more liberal than Obama, and she can afford to be because she is from San Fran. district. BUT, that does not mean she will be allowed to remain as the leader of the House if she does not toe the Obama party line.

    As for Obama, if his popularity dips, he has to watch his back because she will alienate him from the extreme left that makes up a significant portion of the Dems base.

    It will be interesting to watch unfold...

    The stimulus package was at 59% last I check and largely divided along party lines.

    I think the dems will do fine... particularly if the repubs do nothing but whine for the next few years.

    Not that I'd mind someone besides Pelosi. If Schumer were speaker, that's pretty cool for my neighborhood. :)

    Whining non stop for 8 years straight didn't seem to hurt the Dems any....the Republicans will do just fine in 2010. Particularly because the Dems wont have the brainless Obama mania voters to fall back on and then brag about.

    Chuck Schumer is a member of the Senate not the House of Representatives.

    As such, he cannot be the Speaker of the House...

    Gallup had only 39% public support. 57% of the American public oppose it.

    It WILL fail. Economy isn't going to crash, unless the Chinese and Arab oil states refuse to loan us money to pay fore it (which is a VERY REAL possibility), but it isn't going to create much anything in terms of jobs, other than more bloated gov't jobs..
