Ok........I kid. But seriously, I never found her horribly effective at most things, and to be fair to her, I can say the same of Newt, Paul, Dennis or Bohener.
They are all dividers, and never truly try to unify the House. They're not even on the congressional Kinsey scale. There is no bi - just partisan-on-partisan action.
So good for Nance for her letter to the BLOTUS, asking him to put off the State of the Union - or providing it another way. Except it was totally unneeded. The Constitution (the paper, not the ship....or my early morning walk) says so.
First of, Article 2, Section 3 pretty much tells us why no woman can be President. "He shall from time to time....". Not 'She'. So let it be written, so let it be told.
But the Constitution also lays out that the President is invited, by the House Speaker, to give the State of the Union address. Somewhere down the line, 'time to time' became annual. The invite, might not be needed, but has always been given. It's still the President's constitutional requirement to provide the update. And really - hasn't he been giving those to use daily,
I think we're good here.
