Wasserman Schultz May Be Dems' Odd Woman Out

Wasserman Schultz May Be Dems' Odd Woman Out:


When RealClearPolitics talked to current and former lawmakers and Capitol Hill staffers about the leadership styles of Clinton, Pelosi, and Wasserman Schultz, the response often heard was: Just concentrate on Clinton and Pelosi. ... That Wasserman Schultz is controversial isn’t new but the complaints have reached a new level, leading to questions about her future. ... Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer ... volunteered: “I don’t know what Debbie is going to do. You have to ask her.” ... But the chatter is growing as to whether she will make it to the end of her term.

 
“She has no friends in the White House, she has no friends on the Hill. Her own staff at the DNC overwhelming despises her,” said a Democratic strategist who knows Wasserman Schultz. “And she’s oblivious to it all.”

2. The Dem Establishment got what they needed out of DWS.

 

Here comes that letter that asks her to a meeting at a local bus stop.

I almost feel sorry for her.

9. Don't feel too sorry. She is sure to pick up

a high paying lobby position for pharma or pay day lending industries after losing to Tim Canova.

11. Or a talking head.

 

She can fill in for Rachel and talk way too fast, too.

15. That might do the least amount of damage.

MSNBC would be a great fit for her in their "Swerve Right" direction.

16. once the superdels hand her a nom they become disposable in that instant

they sign their own warrants, and since they'd "let" Sanders get so close, well, they'd only given 100%

Clinton expects 101%

14. No deal. I don't think we need your help to get DWS out.

Looks like the leadership is throwing her under the bus, just like they did to us.
