That was just ‘fake news’…
She will easily get her old job back….
Now we have another media effort to create interest…
There is a impatient faction of Democrats who want to term limit their parties senior leadership…
This effort is sure to fail….
Look back to yesterday’s brush in the oval office between Trump, Schumer and Pelosi….
The incoming Speaker of the House, the only woman in the group , was forceful, on point and completely at home in the situation of power politics in front of the camera’s….

Politico reported Tuesday evening that Pelosi and some of her opponents were on the brink of a tentative agreement on a retroactive three-term limit for top party leaders with the ability to add a fourth term if two-thirds of the Democratic Caucus approves.
