Linda Sanchez from California says its time for Nancy and her cabal to go.  She must have watched the town hall on CNN and the way Nancy struggles to string coherent words together to form a sentence.

 

Who will fill the leadership void when nancy goes?

whenever something is attributed to a "top Democrat" I know it will be a name I am unfamiliar with.

I never heard of her either.  CBS says she’s a top dem.  I took their word for it since they are liberal shills

Rep. Linda Sanchez, a top U.S. House Democrat from California, said Thursday it's time for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team to step aside and make way for the next generation of leaders.

The comments from the vice chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, set to air on C-SPAN's "Newsmakers" show Sunday, are likely the strongest comments any senior Democrat has made questioning Pelosi's leadership. The 77-year-old Pelosi, first elected as a California representative in 1987, has served in congressional leadership since 2001. Sanchez, asked who is the leader of the Democratic Party, said she doesn't think there's any single leader in the House. 

"Our leadership does a tremendous job. But I do think we have this real breadth and depth of talent within our caucus and I do think it's time to pass a torch to a new generation of leaders and I want to be a part of that transition," Sanchez told reporters for the Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times during the show's taping. "I want to see that happen. I think we have too many great members here that don't always get the opportunities that they should. I would like to see that change."

Sanchez, pressed to clarify her comments, didn't back down. She told the reporters Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland, and House Assistant Minority Leader James Clyburn should also be read to step aside.

"They are all of the same generation and again, their contributions to the Congress and the caucus are substantial. But I think there comes a time when you need to pass that torch. And I think it's time," Sanchez said.

Sanchez, 48, is the fifth-ranking Democrat in Congress. 

Other Democrats have also called for Pelosi to step aside. Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Massachusetts, told CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett it's time for change before the 2018 midterm elections.

Responding to the Sanchez interview, Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said his boss " enjoys wide support."

"Leader Pelosi enjoys wide support in the Caucus and has always said she not in Congress on a shift but on a mission. Leader Pelosi is focused on winning back the House and anything else is a distraction from our path to the Majority."

C-SPAN's "Newsmakers" airs Sundays at 10 a.m.

The Democrat Party just would not be the same without 80 year old, decrepit, White slave masters handing out free stuff for votes.  Now is not the time to "move in a new direction" people.  Hillary almost won you know.  She'll still be available in three years.  So will Bernie.

That is a good question.  Who really is the Leader?  I mean, if Hillary did say she wanted to run again for 2020 who actually gets together and says to the old bat, "its time for you to go away"?

This sounds like some young bucks that want power, but the elders are in the way, and not quite ready to get out of the way yet.

Ol Nance didnt lie and cheat  and steal her way to the top to just quit.

Nope, ol Sanchez has to come up with a candidate in Nance's district to beat her.

Just like an elk herd, you want the does, you got to beat the big horned guy to get laid around here.

Ol Nancy will go down swinging. It is all she knows how to do.

She never learned to quit.

Do you think her vapidness is getting worse, or has she always been this way, and with her being the Democrat mouthpiece, is just bringing it to light with her increased air time?

The old girl has never seen a microphone or camera she didn't gravitate towards like a moth to a Coleman double mantle lantern.
