Pat Buchanan: Will Democratic Rebels Dethrone Nancy?

After adding at least 37 seats and taking control of the House by running on change, congressional Democrats appear to be about to elect as their future leaders three of the oldest faces in the party.

Nancy Pelosi of California and Steny Hoyer of Maryland have led the House Democrats for 16 years. For 12 years, they have been joined in the leadership triumvirate by Jim Clyburn of South Carolina.

If these three emerge as speaker, majority leader and majority whip, all three Democratic leaders will be older than our oldest president, Ronald Reagan, was when he went home after two terms.

By 2020’s election, all three House leaders would be over 80.

And you they, at age 75+, are in touch with the needs and desires of people aged 18-50? Tell me another fairy tale!
They spend absolutely less than 1% of their time in a year conversing with people of that age group. The only thing they know is what their handlers tell them to say and do. Merely puppets. Another example for term limits. Do you really think Pelosi could sit down with 5 people from that age range and have any type of meaning full discussion about what is going on in their lives and she could honestly relate to them? Hogwash!
