Pelosi, Reid retain their leadership seats, Pelosi minority mode style, but something just does not make sense.

Pelosi is beyond narcissism. Just today she talked glowingly about JFK, and how Barack Obama was like JFK. It is so clear that Pelosi, like Arianna Huffington and Oprah Winfrey, could not stand the idea of another female, Hillary Clinton, one upping their places in history.

But besides that, can someone, ANYONE, explain why the democratic LOSERS are determining next years minority leader of the house, NOW? Does that make any sense to anyone?

When there is upheaval in congress, I can see the "winning" side voting before the newer party members arrive next year because the argument can be made that it was the work of those already in that helped pave the way for their gains (although this year it was more the democrats dropping the ball then the republicans earning it).

But the democrats LOST. They lost BIG TIME.
Why is the democratic party voting before next years democrat herd comes in? Why are the SAME DEMOCRATS who helped LOSE the House Majority getting the opportunity to vote on who runs things for the NEXT 2 YEARS?
I don't know how long this style of voting has gone on before next years class of politicians comes in, but it is clear to me that the winning side should go before the new class comes in, and the LOSERS wait until next term to select their minority "winner".

I wonder if that is the way it used to be and somewhere along the way somebody just changed it.

Remember that definition of insanity? The political corollary: back losers when you're losing. It's insane but the corps are getting their money's worth.
