Post U.S. Elections: Vacancy for new leaders in Democratic Party

Washington DC [USA], Nov. 16 : They are a basket of 'dejectables', if I may coin a word. Completely devastated that they lost an election that was theirs to win, but Hillary Clinton did deliver a dud. Granted that she did poll more votes, but in the end she lost the Dems, an election. And in the end, that is what matters, a win or a loss.

House Democrats today announced that they would delay their leadership elections to November 30; which makes longtime Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi's position tenacious. Not a good time to be a woman, at least a woman politician in America.
