Nancy Pelosi won’t run for Speaker again. At least that’s the rumor being reported by The Hill as told to them by Democratic Representative Mike McIntyre. McIntyre says that he wouldn’t vote for her again anyway, but just for the record he hears she may not run for another term as Speaker of the House.

If it were true it would be wonderful news; the bottom line is, and it’s even better news, it probably doesn’t matter one way or the other. The way things are looking for the Democrats, the only way Pelosi could run for another term as Speaker is if she switched her party affiliation. I don’t think that’s going to happen.

McIntyre hails from North Carolina and belongs to the ever shrinking number of “blue dog” democrats that held such promise of keeping the left wing Pelosi in check. Blue Dogs helped the democrats sweep into power in 2006 promising to be a balance between Bush and Pelosi. They quickly fell in line.

Now, in the fight of his political life, McIntyre joins an ever increasing number of democrats trying to pull away from the radical Obama agenda and the even more radical one of Pelosi. Voters aren’t fooled this time around; McIntyre has been in the House for seven terms but is hanging on by a thread in 2010.

Given the current political climate, early voter turnout, and the daily polls, saying Nancy Pelosi won’t run for Speaker again has never been a truer statement.
