Who exactly is A.B. Stoddard and why is she intent on
tearing down Pelosi? She's been on MSNBC a bit lately. I don't think she is unbiased.

2. She showed up a little over a month ago out of nowhere....and she's
terrible. I don't know why we have such weak spokespersons for the Dem Party. I thought it was because we were "laying low" until the election, but I'm hoping come January we can have some stronger spokespeople and also see much less of Donna Brazille. She's okay once in awhile but she appears everywhere.

As a Majority Party it's time to have folks who seem to have conviction and know what the heck is going on rather than these weak blatherers. Although Stoddard projects that she knows what she's talking about better than some...she hardly seems a Dem but more a rightward thinking observer.

3. Not just Nancy - but every Dem who opposed Lieberman or is positioned left of the
Clintons.

She is a horrid person and a WORSE reporter.

4. brief background
AB Stoddard took to The Hill recently after years of wandering around the halls of Congress for ABC as an off-air reporter and a brief foray as a monthly CQ pundit.

Now as a featured columnist, Stoddard's mission is to perform the talking head TV shtick and promote The Hill's congressional coverage on a grander stage. It's already working. She's been a featured gabber on Fox and Hardball.

AB honed her reporting on the Congressional three-ring circus -- including the Clinton impeachment freak show -- at The Hill before joining ABC. Television may be in her blood, though, and don't be surprised if a network soon sweeps her up. Stoddard's father helped pioneer the network mini-series. AB may just be the best Brandon Stoddard production, yet.
