    California has been the main base of power for democrats for decades. Its not only moving speakership its moving their base.
    No small task.

    I see one choice that MIGHT work for them. The Mayor Deblabbo runs for a house seat in the off year becomes minority speaker. New York is the only democrat state still stable enough to replace California.

    The power shift is going to be more than a person, its going to be a state.

    That would be the final icing on the cake!

    I look around, and cannot believe our fortunes.

    Obama is leaving and being replaced by a Republican

    The Clinton's are now fading away.

    Harry Reid is going away.

    House and Senate still with the GOP.

    33 of the nations governors will be Republicans.

    Only 5 states will have a Dim trifecta (governor and state Senate and House) which is a historic low.

    And now maybe even the end of Pelosi's reign.

    I feel like this is a dream.

    Three economic problems with this idea:

    Having massive state and local taxes is already causing mass emigration from the Blue wall. This will get much worse if federal tax rates are reduced as planned this will get much worse fast.

    The bond ratings and yields for munis from the true blue states sound like those of a banana republic when adjusted for current tax rates. Any increase in rates and a lot of blue states will join CA in being parttime banana republics

    The prospect of having federal funds withheld as planned will likely put many of them over the edge even with complete capitulation prior to action being taken.

    The blue wall ceasing to exist except as wards of federal bankruptcy courts under Chapter 3 by 2018 is very high. NY, CA and IL are trying to migrate to FL, GA, NC, TX & VA is happening while I type So those state may be the new blue wall.

    When you factor in the billions of dollars extra that go to a speakers home state via contracts and benefits it could be a death blow to California.

    Oh please, please,please demos, don't get rid of ye ole wrinkled leader. She is divisive, rude, ugly and generally unlikable. Which makes her perfect to continue the unraveling of the American Socialist party, or commonly known as democrats.
