Considering Nancy Pelosi as Whip and Speaker

I think she's an excellent whip, good at getting members to vote for a proposal and knowing when to bring a proposal into action, and a poor Speaker, unwilling to lead. We have seen this in the passage of the PPACA and the impeachment investigation. Once the Obama administration proposed the PPACA, and it ran into trouble in the Senate, it was Nancy Pelosi who whipped the votes in the House and got it passed. On the other hand, she did not act against W. Bush despite all his offenses, and she waited and waited and waited until atrocities had been committed and the Trump administration had had time to cement itself in power.
