The more things change, the more they will stay the same

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif., speaks with reporters during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. Whichever party controls the House and Senate after the Nov. 2, 2010 election probably will install the same leaders whose policymaking helped bring about the sour economy, nearly double-digit unemployment and deficit spending that has led voters to call for fresh faces. Retain or lose the majority, Pelosi, 70, faces a far less appealing job as leader of a smaller caucus. Publicly, she has refused to entertain the notion that she will return in any less role than as speaker. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)
