    Democrats Float New Role for Liz Cheney as Early GOP Election Leads Evaporate

    Published on

    A new suggestion has been suggested for a speaker of the House who is notorious to many on both sides because neither party demonstrated much in the way of political control in the election on Tuesday.

    The speaker of the Democratic majority at the moment is Nancy Pelosi. Before the election, Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was frequently mentioned as a great contender for speaker if the Republicans won the House in the red wave that didn’t quite happen.

    Pre-election certainties are being reviewed as a result of the uncertainty surrounding House control and the unease among members over the election results, as reported by CNN.

    After Jennifer Rubin, a journalist for The Washington Post, tweeted her support, the idea of outgoing Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney serving as speaker gained traction on social media. Cheney, one of just two Republicans serving on the House committee looking into what happened on January 6, 2021, has harshly criticized former President Donald Trump.

    “OK, I’m sold. Liz Cheney for Speaker,” Rubin penned.

    John Dean, a CNN commentator and former White House advisor under Richard Nixon, gave it his seal of approval.

    “WaPo columnist Jennifer Rubin suggested that if the GOP gets control of the House, Democrats should nominate Liz Cheney Speaker. Brilliant idea in many ways!” he tweeted.

    Democratic candidate Zack Czajkowski, who worked on former President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign, provided a special justification for why Cheney was qualified.

    “Why not Liz Cheney as a transition Speaker of the House. It’ll piss off both Democrats and Republicans. She’s a responsible adult with a conservative voting record, a proven ability to work across the aisle, and most importantly has unflappable morale courage under pressure,” Czajkowski wrote.

    But the idea quickly came under attack from both the right and the left, and the bubble soon popped.

    “There will NOT be a Liz Cheney Speakership. She’s looking for a job, but she won’t get that one. Any Republican who would vote for Liz Cheney would be voting for Biden’s agenda,” Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted.

    Not to be outdone, Nina Turner, the co-chair of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign for president, found herself in agreement with Greene.

    “These folks live in an episode of The West Wing, while 60% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, can’t afford medical treatment, and are struggling to put food on the table. No, Liz ‘I voted against the John Lewis Voting Rights Act’ Cheney should not be speaker. Ever,” wrote Turner.

    Despite the fact that a member of the House usually serves as speaker, anyone from outside of Congress is eligible to hold the position. It has been suggested that Trump might possibly be selected due to this restriction.
