Very good comments from Jeffries: YouTube


Jeffries wins historic bid to lead House Dems after Pelosi

WASHINGTON (AP) — Emboldened House Democrats ushered in a new generation of leaders on Wednesday with Rep. Hakeem Jeffries elected to be the first Black American to head a major political party in Congress as long-serving Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her team step aside next year.

Showing rare party unity after their midterm election losses, the House Democrats moved seamlessly from one history-making leader to another, choosing the 52-year-old New Yorker, who has vowed to “get things done,” even after Republicans won control of the chamber. The closed-door vote was unanimous, by acclamation.

I'm sorry to see a challenge to Jim Clyburn's bid to be Assistant Democratic leader. He is the highest ranking Black person in Congress, we need his voice. I feel confident he'll win. That will be a big loss if he doesn't.

The late night comics will have a hey day with his speech mannerisms. But apparently when he speaks, it will be worthwhile listening to him.

Think 5 or more republicans would vote for him as Speaker?

Make that final term republicans, to be sure, but things could get done!

An NBC reporter tweeted that the new top 3 are 93 years younger than the old top 3. Can that really be right?

Sure, going from folks in their 80s to replacements in their 50s.
