The deputies have chosen the new Chairman of the chamber and, consequently, to the most powerful woman in American politics and for the time being, the main adversary of the US President.

Pelosi had to withstand at the time of their candidacy, although some resistance from its own ranks, but now it is there, where you wanted to go. And most importantly: as of now, the Democrats have the Say in the house of representatives. For Trump, the uncomfortable.

Sharper has been described Pelosi then at a Meeting with party colleagues: The Meeting with Trump as a “peeing contest with a skunk”, the wall project as an outgrowth of his Macho Manner: “As if masculinity could ever be associated with him.”

a Painful defeat

In the mid-term elections in early November has some moved. Trumps Republicans have defended their majority in the U.S. Senate and were able to win a few seats. They lost control in the house of representatives to the Democrats.

Trump is the pain. With their new strength in the chamber it can make the Democrats life difficult: you can initiate initiate investigations against him, the law to block projects that, theoretically, even for impeachment proceedings against the President. However, the latter would fail, probably at the latest in the Republican-dominated Senate.

Younger, female, progressive

To this day one of the new Congress is a lot going on at the Capitol in the morning. Many of the members have brought their families.

In the ranks of the Democrats have many progressive candidates. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for example, the newcomer from New York who has managed at the age of 29 as the youngest woman ever to enter the chamber. For the first time, Muslim women and female descendants of natives sitting in the chamber.

The new diversity is in the hall of the house of representatives recognizable. In the ranks of the Republicans, many middle seats are particularly old men in dark suits. The ranks of the Democrats look much more colorful, with female members in bright clothes. Some members have also brought their children with in the room, a schuckelt his Baby in his Arm.

“There is no stability in the government”

Marcy Kaptur started, everything was still different. The 72-Year-old sitting since 1983, in the chamber of the U.S. Congress, for 35 years.

As Kaptur, in 1983, had their first day, it is far less colorful in the chamber. “At that time, only about two dozen women sat in the house of representatives,” says the Congresswoman from Ohio. “The average age was at the time at about 60, I was 36.” The chamber is now female and more colorful, especially in the case of the Democrats, bring a lot of energy and new voices into the house, she says.

In times of a President Trump would be the very important. Overall, they’ve experienced a style of politics as in the case of Trump never before in their long political career. “There is no stability in the government,” complains Kaptur. “This is dangerous for our country.”

The “Shutdown” is run for the Democrats dangerous

The Democrats of the “Shutdown” a little the Start in the new Congress period, been destroyed by hail. You had want to put other issues to the forefront. You try now, as the Savior of the Nation to present, as the regulating power in an increasingly chaotic Washington.

Pelosi has already announced in advance, to leave on the first day of the new Congress a bill for a budget vote. But the billions of dollars, calls for Trump to his boundary wall, are not provided for therein. The White house has the design, therefore, as unfit to be dismissed. If Trump’s still moving, is questionable.

what is Clear is that the longer the Shutdown lasts, the greater the risk for the Democrats, the resentment of the citizens. With the new Power in the house of representatives, it is also such a thing. You can badger Trump and his government now. But here, too, the risk in the population, resentment trigger and before the next presidential election in 2020 as a blocker to stand. The Democrats need to find the Balance. This will be Pelosis Job.
