The Pelosi Decision: It will forever live in history as famous or infamous. [View all]

Impeach or not impeach, that is the decision that has been forced upon her. Fate has found Pelosi. No one knows, including Pelosi, what the right decision will be. Pelosi is a politician who will weigh the political risks. It may guide her when she decides what to do. I do not know if Pelosi is a risk taker. Does she have the ability to set aside great political risk when making a decision? Sometimes that is the right thing to do. Sometimes it is not.

For example; Obama faced great political risk when he sent the Seals in to take out Bin Laden. He had no direct evidence Bin Laden was there. If Bin Laden was not there and the mission failed it may have ended his presidency. Obama set aside the political risks and took a shot. It was the right decision.

As I watch Pelosi and the Democrats take action against Trump and others, sometimes it seems they are very serious about getting too impeachment. Sometimes I see things that make it look like that they are not serious about impeaching Trump. For example, why has't Mueller been subpoenaed to testify. Why wait? Pelosi with her own words has suggested she wants to vote Trump out, not impeach him.

Because she is a politician what she is suggesting may be true or it may be cover for what she plans on doing. We don't know. Politicians can always change their minds.

The bottom line is, I am glad I am not in Pelosi's shoes. Whatever choice she makes will change the course of history.
