Replace Nancy With Cindy
The solution to this failed leadership of Nancy Pelosi, is over-throwing her in San Francisco.
It's not about being a bad "leader," it's about going against the wishes of her constituents, time and time again!
For Pelosi and her cronies, and against US, impeachment for the criminals George Bush and Dick Cheney was OFF HER TABLE; but war-funding, demolishing FISA and the 4th Amendment, torture and bailing out corporate pirates were ON HER TABLE.

(Notice how she collaborates so obediently with the White House!)
Bailout blues: After a rough start to the week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosiapparently wasn't taking any chances that Friday's re-vote on the big Wall Street bailout would go south.
The $700 billion package came up short on its first vote Monday, with East Bay Reps.Barbara Lee and Pete Stark and North Bay Reps. Lynn Woolsey and Mike Thompson - Democrats all - joining the "no" forces.
Pelosi's phone lines and e-mail systems were jammed with thousands of calls and messages railing against the plan as well as the speaker's handling of the crisis.
The second time around, Pelosi was determined to have a Democratic cushion to sit on - and by Thursday night she had rounded up commitments from at least half the 235 House Democrats.
She had already phoned White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten and told him she wouldn't bring the bailout to a vote unless she was certain that House Republicans - who voted 2-1 against the first bailout bill - were also on board. Bolten assured her they were.
And Pelosi soon got further assurances from House Republican leaders John Boehner and Roy Blunt that they would deliver as many as half their 199 members.
In the end, the Dems got 172 of their own, including Woolsey, Lee and Thompson - 32 more than the first time. The Republicans got 91 votes, a pickup of 26 from Monday. Add it all up, and it was 45 votes more than needed for passage.
Even before the final votes trickled in, President Bush phoned Pelosi on the House floor to congratulate her - something he had never had occasion to do before.
As for Pelosi, she took off late in the afternoon for Baltimore to attend her 50th anniversary high school reunion before flying back home to San Francisco for the weekend.
The rest of the story: Despite Friday's House vote on the bailout, Pelosi may have a distance to go to repair her image.
According to Mark DiCamillo of the California Field Poll, a statewide survey conducted this past summer found that 39 percent of voters disapproved of Pelosi and 30 percent approved, with the rest having no opinion.
Even on her home turf in the liberal Bay Area, Pelosi scored only a 32 percent approval, with 39 percent disapproving.
"It wasn't a great profile," DiCamillo said.
And the speech she gave Monday before the House shot down the first bailout bill - in which she laid blame for the mess with the Bush administration and Republican misrule - "just underlines the partisan image that voters have of her," DiCamillo said.
Fortunately for Pelosi, she's still a prolific fundraiser and therefore popular among her fellow Democrats in the House - so chances are there won't be a leadership run against her anytime soon.
