Ah, it's not whether you win or lose that counts. "The CEO out. The coach would be out and there would be a new strategy put in place", the NY lawmaker added. "We need to have a vision". We need a vision-where are we going?

Trump's election as president had papered over the intraparty disputes and generational divides among House Democrats, as lawmakers joined in opposing the White House and trying to channel the energy of their party's liberal base. On June 22, Representative Kathleen Rice took part in a CNN interview that suggested Democrats are ready to oust Pelosi because they feel that she is no longer providing the vision and message needed to steer the party towards political dominance.

"There is a consensus, I think, that we can reach in the caucus that allows for a new leadership team to be put in place in a time that's well before, hopefully, November of next year".


On Thursday morning at her weekly briefing, Pelosi fielded several questions about calls for her to go.

Celebrity songstress Cher jumped into the fray, and in answer to Moulton's tweets observed that it's time to bring in new blood.

And Rep. Tim Ryan criticized Pelosi along with his party's brand and its outreach to voters.

"If we keep taking the margins down by 20 points like we have done, we're going to take 50 seats", Perez said. "My leadership is recognized by many around the country, and that is why I'm able to attract the support that I do".
