Pelosi on defense: 'I'm a master legislator' and 'worth the trouble'
Is it Time for the Democratic Party to Rid Itself of Nancy Pelosi?

While Pelosi seems to be politically unpopular at the moment, she has a long record as a prolific Democratic fundraiser, a qualification that may insulate her from the backlash she's received since Ossoff's loss.
"When it comes to personal ambition and having fun on TV, have your fun", Pelosi said during a press briefing in the Capitol, referring to her detractors making the cable news rounds. "I thrive on competition". "My leadership is recognized by many around the country, and that is why I'm able to attract the support that I do". They say voters in Republican-leaning districts are motivated by more than a desire to stop Pelosi and Democrats need to work on developing a message that can win them over.
Looking at the campaign ads eventual victor Karen Handle ran in the Georgia race, one would have thought she was running against Pelosi, not Jon Ossoff.
Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, who represents a district near Youngstown, challenged Pelosi for the minority leader post past year but lost.
"Unfortunately a loss for us, but not good news for them", Pelosi told the rank-and-file in a closed door meeting Wednesday morning, according to Democrats present.
There are many more people today, even from November, who are much more vocal, who have approached us and said, 'I'm done. In Georgia, political strategists working on behalf of the Republican party staged an anti-Pelosi campaign that helped their candidate retain a seat.
She added: "You hate to say that it doesn't count, because any vote counts, but it's unnecessary". Democrats have been chafing in the minority since they were thrust there in 2010 after risky votes in favor of President Barack Obama's initiatives including the Affordable Care Act.
The longtime politician's sentiments came just before Trump spoke of her in an interview with "Fox & Friends" which aired on Friday.
Just hours before the news conference, moderate Democratic Rep. Kathleen Rice of NY reiterated her call that it was time for Pelosi to step aside. "Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost", Vela told Politico.
There's also an even more basic reality: Showing that the party will dump its leader if Republicans are persistently negative enough about that leader only gives the GOP more incentive to use aggressive tactics - and puts the next Democratic leader on tepid ground from the outset.
Calls for Pelosi to step down are coming from as far as MA, a voting jurisdiction that would like to inherit the prestige that California enjoys as a Democratic stronghold.
"The issue I think strategically is that Trump energizes their base and Leader Pelosi energizes their base", said Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, who was unsuccessful a year ago in trying to unseat Pelosi.
Drew Hammill, a Pelosi spokesman, said she's done more than just raise money and that Pelosi is "without rival" as a legislative tactician. "I love the fray". Such comments about Pelosi were highlighted by Republicans on Thursday in an attempt to illustrate a divided Democratic caucus.
"Democrats should not focus their campaigns about him, they should be about jobs", he added.
