Rep. Pelosi: 4-year maximum in speaker post is ‘a long time’

Pelosi: 4-year maximum in speaker post is ‘a long time’Associated Press2 years agoapNewsNancy Pelosi. Photo courtesy of Wikipedia. ALAN FRAMAssociated PressRep. Nancy Pelosi shrugged off suggestions Thursday that she weakened herself by agreeing to limit her tenure as next House speaker to a four-year maximum in a deal that clears the way for her to be elected to the post for the new Congress.“That’s a long time,” she said at a news conference a day after she and seven insurgents who’d been pushing for younger leadership announced their pact.For weeks, the 78-year-old California Democrat had resisted opponents’ demands that she step aside or restrict how long she’d serve, saying limits would make her a lame duck and sap her bargaining clout. But on Wednesday, she relented and struck a deal that all but guarantees she’ll be elected when the House votes on its new speaker on Jan. 3.“What, four years? No, I don’t think that’s a lame duck,” she told a group of reporters afterward.Democrats widely agreed that the pledge meant Pelosi had clinched a comeback to the post she held from 2007 until January 2011, the last time her party ran the House and the first time the speaker was a woman.Wednesday’s accord gives Pelosi a clear path to becoming the most powerful Democrat in government and a leading role in confronting President Donald Trump during the upcoming 2020 presidential and congressional campaigns. It moves her to the cusp of steering next year’s diverse crop of House Democrats, with its large number of female, minority and younger members.The agreement also ends what’s been a distracting, harsh leadership fight among Democrats that has been waged since Election Day, when they gained at least 39 seats and grabbed House control for the next Congress. It was their biggest gain of House seats since the 1974 post-Watergate election.To line up support, Pelosi initially resorted to full-court lobbying by congressional allies, outside Democratic luminaries, and liberal and labor organizations. She cut deals with individual lawmakers for committee assignments and roles leading legislative efforts.But in the end, she had to make concessions about her tenure to make sure she’ll win a majority — likely 218 votes — when the new House votes. Democrats are likely to have 235 seats, meaning she could spare only 17 defections and still prevail if, as expected, Republicans all oppose her.Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., a dissident and friend of Pelosi’s, said the two began seeking middle ground after she called him around Thanksgiving. He told reporters that the two spoke a dozen times before the agreement was reached.“I think the change has started,” Perlmutter told reporters. He said that, meanwhile, Democrats have a leader “who’s going to be really good at the helm during some tumultuous times.”Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., another lawmaker who wanted fresh leadership, said no one wanted to directly challenge Pelosi because “she’s tough, she’s good, she’s a woman, she’s done it before.” Sanchez said Pelosi has led Democrats so long that “it’s sort of ingrained” and “it’s hard to overcome that.”Under the deal, House Democrats will vote by Feb. 15 to change party rules to limit their top three leaders to no more than four two-year terms, including time they’ve already spent in those jobs. There is no guarantee that Democrats will formally approve the plan, but Pelosi embraced it anyway.“I am comfortable with the proposal and it is my intention to abide by it whether it passes or not,” Pelosi said in her statement.Pelosi’s opponents have argued it was time for younger leaders to command the party. They also said her demonization as an out-of-touch radical in tens of millions of dollars’ worth of Republican television ads was costing Democrats seats.While some Democrats are still certain to vote against Pelosi — including incoming freshmen who promised to do so during their campaigns — most Democrats have remained solidly behind her. She’s been a strong fundraiser and unrelenting liberal who doesn’t shy from political combat, and her backers complained that her opponents were mostly white men who were largely more moderate than most House Democrats.Pressure to back Pelosi seemed to grow after she calmly went toe-to-toe with Trump at a nationally televised verbal brawl in the Oval Office on Tuesday over his demands for congressional approval of $5 billion for his proposed border wall with Mexico.“We are proud that our agreement will make lasting institutional change that will strengthen our caucus and will help develop the next generation of Democratic leaders,” the rebellious lawmakers said in a written statement.To be nominated to a fourth term under the agreement, Pelosi would need to garner a two-thirds majority of House Democrats. Several aides said they believed restlessness by younger members to move up in leadership would make that difficult for her to achieve.The limits would also apply to Pelosi’s top lieutenants, No. 2 leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland and No. 3 leader James Clyburn of South Carolina. Both are also in their late 70s.Perlmutter was among 16 Democrats who had signed a letter demanding new leadership but who ultimately helped negotiate the deal with Pelosi.Joining Perlmutter in saying they would now back her were Democratic Reps. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts; Tim Ryan of Ohio; Bill Foster of Illinois; Sanchez and Rep.-elect Gil Cisernos, both of California; and Filemon Vela of Texas.
