Pelosi is popular now

Sarcastic posts aside, it seems like the anti-anti-Pelosi side has prevailed among the Democrats. Just a couple of months ago, it wasn't that unusual to see Democrats trash Pelosi and wonder if someone else should be speaker. But when a handful of Representative-elects tried to sink her, the Pelosi-defending backlash was fierce and loud. Now most Democrats have a better understanding of how effective she had been as speaker in her prior tenure. Once the Pelosi-chatter was about stuff she had accomplished and wasn't a bunch of right-winger trashing her, it turns out she can be pretty popular.
