Nancy Pelosi delivers caucus, but not locally

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

imageOnly six of 13 Bay Area (or near Bay Area) members of Congress voted yes on yesterday’s debt ceiling compromise—and one of them, Dan Lungren from Sacramento County, is a Republican. The breakdown is at the end of Carolyn Lochhead’s Chronicle piece that dwells on how big a role Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi played in selling a compromise that, as the story says, has Bay Area Democrats enraged at President Obama.

Noted: Pelosi, by comparison, comes across as a veritable rock star. On SFGate, there was this curious hed attached to the piece: “Dem reasons to cheer: Pelosi, Giffords.” Guess it pays to be the hometown girl.
