savvy. But when he's talking political ramifications, he's in Nancy Pelosi's area of expertise.

And part of her expertise is that, like most smart, effective people, she gathers information and advice from many different sources. Then, again like most smart, effective people, she considers it weighs it against all of the factors she's dealing with, synthesizes it, and then makes an intelligent decision.

My point is that, while Professor Tribe's constitutional analysis - i.e., that the House has the power to do what he's recommending - is probably unassailable, his position and expertise as a brilliant law professor does not mean that Pelosi has to simply unquestionably accept his political guidance just because it came from him.
