Pelosi Under the Bus: 'From What We're Hearing, She's Probably Not Going to Run for Speaker Again'

As if she's going to have a choice.
A House Democratic lawmaker said late last week that he'd heard that Nancy Pelosi wouldn't seek another term as Speaker.

Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) said that not only would he not back Pelosi (D-Calif.) for Speaker again, but also that he'd heard she would not seek another term in that position.

"From what we're hearing, she's probably not going to run for Speaker again," McIntyre told WWAY-TV in North Carolina. "And if she does, I'm confident she's going to have opposition, and I look forward to supporting that opposition."

The seven-term centrist Democrat is facing one of the toughest re-election challenges of his career from Republican Ilario Pantano. The district, covering the southern tip of North Carolina, is seen as generally favorable territory for Republicans, though the nonpartisan Cook Political Report rates the race as a "lean Democratic" contest.

McIntyre joins the growing flood of Democrats who are saying they will oppose Pelosi as Speaker if Democrats retain the majority. An additional crowd of Democrats -- most recently Staten Island Rep. Mike McMahon (D) -- have refused to say how they would vote.
Survival of the fittest at this point for the endangered Democrats. Let's try and see to it that McIntyre doesn't even get the chance to vote.
