Shuler: Pelosi Isolated From Democrat Moderates

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi apparently continues to be a drag on the Democrat Party. She has alienated herself from the party’s moderates in the House — the Blue Dog Coalition, says North Carolina Rep. Heath Shuler, one of its top members, The Hill reports.
"There has really been no communication whatsoever" Shuler tells MSNBC. "We still do not have any connection between the blue dogs and leadership."

Shuler says the moderate Democrats often are closer philosophically to former Republican President Ronald Reagan than to Pelosi. The country celebrated Reagan's 100th birthday over the weekend.

"It's very rare that she would come to any of our meetings and have conversation," Shuler said.
He adds that Democrats feel better about Minority Whip Steny Hoyer or Assistant Democratic Leader James Clyburn visiting their districts.
