House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) arrogantly dismissed younger Democrats calling for “generational change in leadership” within the party, asserting that “in some cases, there’s no substitute for experience” on Tuesday.
A number of Democrats in the House are calling for younger leadership. Reps. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) and Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) are unabashedly calling for a change in the House leadership according to the Washington Examiner. Others are following suit including Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), who is running for the Senate, and Rep. Dean Phillips (D-Minn.). The issue brings into question whether President Biden should seek a second term at his advanced age.
Slotkin made an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday and called for “new blood” in the Democratic Party, targeting leaders in the House, Senate, and White House.
“I have been very vocal, including with my own leadership in the House, that we need a new generation. We need new blood, period, across the Democratic Party, in the House, the Senate, and the White House,” the two-term Michigan Democrat asserted.

“I’ve said I think we need new leaders. I would love to see some Midwestern leaders in there. Right? That’s been important to me, is to reflect the middle of the country. We’re here too. And… but I do think new blood is a good thing,” Slotkin added.
Pelosi is a ripe, vintage 82 years old. She’s long past her sell-by date and her actions scream it. But she evidently loves power and those reins may have to be pried from her cold, dead hands. Her defense of elderly leftist bureaucrats belies the fact that the majority of Democratic leaders in Congress are now over 70.
Your terms… are acceptable.

“I say, just win, baby. Just win. If that’s what you have to say to win, fine. We will not in any way do anything but totally support, mobilization, message, money for those people to win their races,” she said during an interview on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” when asked about whether older leaders should step down so younger blood can fill the leadership void.
Speaker Pelosi is asked on MSNBC what she'd say to some House Dems in tough races who've called for leadership/generational change: "just win baby, just win. If that's what you have to say to win, fine. We will not in any way do anything but totally supportive…"

“We need generational change, of course, we do, but, in some cases, there’s no substitute for experience,” Pelosi stated, making it clear that most of the Democratic leadership has no intention of stepping aside.
“And I think that what we had been through with the legislation under the leadership of President Biden, who has done a spectacular job. He has had a better two years than most presidents that you can name, certainly in the recent generations. He has, again, with the rescue package, with the, most recently, Inflation Reduction package, with the Chips and Science Act, with the PACT Act for our veterans, for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill. He has had a remarkable record,” she gushed.
“A better 2 years”? In the country in which we live?

Pelosi was first elected as Speaker of the House in 2007. She went on to serve as minority leader before ascending to the speaker position once again in 2019.
There have been growing calls for some time now insisting that the octogenarian retire but she has ruled the Democrat Party with an iron fist and a forked tongue for an incredibly long time.
The California Democrat is very powerful and instilling younger leadership in the woke, Marxist party will not be easy.
