Un futuro senza Nancy Pelosi 13.09.10

Se le cose per i democratici dovessero mettersi male nelle elezioni di mid-term, come le previsioni suggeriscono, il futuro dello Speaker della Camera Nancy Pelosi potrebbe essere compromesso.

Le alternative a questa opzione non sono confortanti.

But as the polls worsen and a Republican-controlled House looks more and more possible, Democrats are beginning to realize they face a top to bottom leadership shakeup if the powerful speaker steps aside in a Democratic minority.

For the most part, Democrats have no obvious roadmap, no heir apparent to the Pelosi mantle, and a fairly thin bench around which to plan the future of their party. After the election, Democrats would face a power vacuum in the lower ranks – assuming current Majority Leader Steny Hoyer takes the helm as minority leader in a post-Pelosi Democratic caucus.
