I received a email and got a link to this Daily Kos campaign to support Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s campaign to be House Minority Leader next term:
As you read this, Pelosi is mulling over whether to run for House Minority Leader. The basic process involves counting her supporters. If she is going to run, she needs to hear from her supporters ASAP that they still in her corner.
You can make her voice heard by signing this petition of support. I will do my best to deliver the petition to her personally before she makes her decision. She will hear your voice.
The Blue Dogs want her out. So, we are now in a fight for control for the party. We have to win it, and signing this petition helps us win it.
This isn’t a petition pleading with powerful people to do the right thing. This is an immediate show of support that is critical to whether or not she runs.
Admittedly, anything the Blue Dog Democrats are for is probably worth opposing.
the Cat Food the Peterson Foundation the Social Security commission?
Shouldn’t we wait to see if, during the lame duck session, she manages to prevent Social Security from being whacked?
Or we can just let ourselves get rolled.
Update: Pelosi is making the right noises about preventing a rollback of Social Security. Still, let’s see how that pans out.
