Farm Bill: Pelosi’s Role

Categories: Farm Bill

Sebastian Mallaby, writing in the opinion section of today’s Washington Post, noted that, “In leading the House Democrats to victory last year, Rep. Nancy Pelosi demonstrated political effectiveness. She perfected the art of saying nyet, stomping on President Bush’s attempt to reform entitlements. The question she left open was whether she could be a constructive speaker of the House. That will involve saying nyet to two Democratic committee chairs who discredit their own party.”
