Gene Taylor on Nancy Pelosi
The Cleveland Plain Dealer has a story on Speaker Nancy Pelosi and spoke with Rep. Taylor, and got his thoughts on how she is handling her job. Until 2006, Taylor had not voted for Pelosi for Speaker of the House.
From the Plain Dealer:
“She has done a pretty good job of listening,” said Rep. Gene Taylor, a Mississippi Democrat. “She hasn’t put pressure on us, and I respect that.”
Taylor, a moderate who has broken with Democratic congressional leaders in the past, warned, however: “A lot of freshmen rode into town on President Obama’s coattails, and they’re not about to desert him. If Obama stumbles, they could, too.”
