Pelosi, speaker, leadership, DemocratsA deal she made Friday to prevent a major fight over Democratic leadership positions in the new Congress had done little to improve the paltry support remaining for her. She says unhappiness with her leadership is merely “a minor irritant,” sources tell Roll Call. But it’s hard to imagine she really believes that.
