But Pelosi is very very politically savvy! I think it was a brilliant shot! You want to close the government? Ok, we will stop your SOTU. Brilliant!
For years, Republicans have wanted to think that politics does not require any real skill. They elected GW Bush's president after serving half a governorship in a "weak governor state" where the governor is only a main character. And he was completely incompetent. They hired Trump based on nothing but attitude and self-confidence, and his administration is a slum. Pelosi would have made a better president than one or the other because she KNOWS WHAT IT DID!
