Voting Present is a Vote for Pelosi

Some new members of the House of Representatives have pledged not to vote for Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)N/A. Instead of casting their vote for someone, they claim they will vote “present.” They need to understand that doing so is a vote for Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)11%. Under House rules, a Speaker is elected based on an absolute majority of votes cast for a person. There can be no plurality. The person elected Speaker must be elected based on an absolute majority of the votes cast. But here is the catch.

Which set me to think, "What would happen if Pelosi was elected Speaker?"  What's the difference between Pelosi and Boner?  What would change?  How would Dems campaign against congress in 2016?

What's the difference between Pelosi and Boner?
We'd hear Pelosi saying inane stuff much more often than we'd hear Boner saying meaningless stuff. The MSM loves her.

The real difference? Botox vs Cheetos at the spa.

Well, Nancy is crazy, Boehner does his job. Then there's the committee assignments.......

Exactly. The difference is that no one would mistake Pelosi for a Republican.
