Re: Back to Pelosi: Hmmm. I'm in agreement that the analogy is inapt. For one thing, Pat Robertson, repellent as he is, is not the GOP house leader. For another, Pelosi - like it or not - can't be in this to lead. She has to win. Harold Ford, in his brief run against Pelosi for the minority leader spot, recognized this and promised to step down from the post if he failed to lead the Dems to recapture the house in 2004. Want to lay odds on whether Pelosi would do that?
