Pelosi Reelected Dem Leader

By on 11.17.10 | 1:29PM

CNN reports:

Outgoing House Speaker has been elected by her colleagues to be the next minority leader, fending off a challenge from Rep. Heath Shuler.

The vote was 150-43.

This result isn't surprising, and reinforces that in the wake of the shelacking in the midterm elections, liberals are actually in a stronger position within the caucus than they were when Democrats were in the majority. The news also serves as a gift to Republicans, given that Pelosi remains one of the most unpopular figures in American politics.
