Pelosi Could Exit If Dems Lose House
Sean opened Friday’s show by discussing an article appearing in Time Magazine {Time Article} about Pelosi’s political future. The article suggests that if Democrats lose control of the House of Representatives next week, as most political observers expect, there is a strong possibility that Princess Pelosi will step away from politics to spend time with her grandchildren. Even if Pelosi wanted to stay on, it’s not clear she would even win the position of minority leader. If the House Speaker does leave many believe the caucus will be left to Steny Hoyer who has been chomping at the bit for decades to take control. All told, half or more of the top Democrats on the House's 20 committees might lose, quit or retire.

DNC: A Party In Turmoil
It appears Bill Clinton tried to persuade Florida Democratic Rep. Meek to drop out of his U.S. Senate race and support Gov. Charlie Crist's independent candidacy. How ironic that the Democratic Party, which claims to have a monopoly on minority interests, minority rights and African American rights would pull such a stunt in an attempt to hurt Marco Rubio, the Hispanic Republican candidate. “Does any of this make any sense to you?” Sean asked. “Can you imagine what the headlines would be if Republicans did something like this?” Sean also pointed out a major flaw in the Democrats’ sneaky plan – early voting has already started in Florida! “You have nearly two million Floridians who have already voted - a third of all likely voters. There wasn’t a single poll showing Crist leading Rubio in any hypothetical two way race. And, as of yesterday, according to internal tracking, Crist and Meek were locked in a statistical dead heat. So why wouldn’t they push Crist out of the race considering he has no chance of winning this thing?” Sean asked.

Delaware Senate Race
Sean welcomed Christine O’Donnell to the last hour of Friday’s show to discuss her race against Chris Coons in Delaware. O’Donnell has cut Coons’ early lead in half and continues to close the gap in the polls. O’Donnell has clearly turned up the heat on her Democratic opponent. “The Anointed One,” Barack Obama, changed his weekend plans and is now headed to Delaware to stump for Coons. O’Donnell explained to Sean that she has been going up and down her state and getting her message out. “We’ve been talking about what’s important to the people of Delaware. How we’re going to get jobs back, how we’re going to get the economy back on track,” O’Donnell said. She also explained that the Delaware Senate seat could be the deciding vote on whether the Bush tax cuts get extended. “Because this will be such an important decision and because my opponent has a history of raising taxes, [Coons] has done everything but discuss the issues and instead continues to create diversions,” O’Donnell told Sean. One thing is certain, this race, as will likely be the case with many races this season, will go down to the wire.
