The American public banished soon-to-be septuagenarian political hack Hillary Clinton to Chappaqua, where she is idling away her last hours on Earth walking her dog,visiting bookstores, and contemplating what the size and shape of her stools signifies about her failing health.
Now it`s incumbent on House Democrats to strip Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of her top leadership post, where she`s been perched for the past 14 years.
The fact that Democrats will decide on their new leader in a secret ballot, gives me hope that his fossil will meet the same fate as Hillary. Most Democratic congressmen and congresswomen are too timed to publicly repudiate Pelosi, but in a secret ballot I trust that they will do what`s in the best interests of the party and kick her to the curb.
Pelosi expects to win re-election this week to lead House Democrats for the 15th year, after all she`s a gifted fundraiser, and most politicians prize the ability to raise money above everything else.
Pelosi`s challenger, Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio, may seem to be on a Quixotic mission, but his youth and populist economic message may knock the old hag from her perch.
If Democrats don`t strip Pelosi of her leadership position, there will be no credible challenge to the Trump administration, and that wouldn`t be a good thing for the Democratic Party or America.
