After Democrats won control of the US House of Representatives, California Rep. Nancy Pelosi is preparing herself for another go at the speakership she held from 2007 to 2011. But while the Democrats hold 226 seats to the Republicans’ 200 (with nine races still disputed), Pelosi has little room for error because younger Democrats are grumbling against her. Pelosi is the first woman to become Speaker but is seen as a contentious politician by other female Democrats who will be coming into office when the 116th US Congress convenes in January. Several younger Democrats are unhappy with Pelosi’s leadership of the House minority the past seven years and have declared objections to electing her Speaker. But she is still expected to win first-round voting later this month. Ironically, President Donald Trump— known for his macho posturings—wants Pelosi to become Speaker and promised to muster Republican support for this.
