Speaking of Pelosi, she’s really key to all of this and serves to rebut a couple of the liberal rationales for what’s happening. If this election were all about the economy and not the Democratic agenda, Pelosi wouldn’t be such a liability. No one blames her for the economy, but she embodies the Democratic program. And, as VDH alluded to earlier, if the anti-Democratic backlash were racist, Pelosi wouldn’t be such a target. Again, it’s what she did and how she did it.
