On Thursday’s “MSNBC Live,” Representative Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), who voted to re-elect Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as House Minority Leader, stated that a change in House Democratic leadership will happen “fairly soon,” and “we have no strategy, and we have no plan, but at least we have some proven leadership” to take the party forward, but a lack of younger leadership “will spell the demise of the Democratic caucus, if we’re not already permanently in a state of smallness.” Cleaver said, “I think that many of us felt that it was not worth the cost that we would pay to change leaders at this politically perplexing time. I mean, look, we’re going to have the challenge of the century right now with the small minority of members we have here in the House, versus the Republican juggernaut in the House, and the Republican Senate and a Republican in the White House. So, I think that many people said, okay, look, we need to have a little more time before we flip over the leadership, and so — and I don’t think that that is going be something, you know, decades down the line. I think that’s something that’s going to happen fairly soon,
