Why not? After all, she’s only lost two national elections in a row while leading the House Democratic caucus, which includes the largest loss in a midterm in 72 years, followed by the inability to regain the House while a Democratic President won re-election by a comfortable margin. Why, in another two years, Nancy Pelosi might be able to deliver a veto-proof majority to, er, John Boehner.
Normally, one would have expected a leader to resign in the wake of the historic 2010 rebuke. After a second disappointment, it’s almost mandatory by Washington etiquette. If Pelosi isn’t ready to quit, perhaps Democrats should push her out themselves.
Update: According to National Journal, Pelosi won’t face any challenge to her leadership position. Again.
