That makes sense--for describing the negatives, of incurring her wrath.

But would that really be any worse than doing things that would almost certainly--almost certainly!--result in a loss in the next general election?

(In other words, Nancy Pelosi is asking these centrist Democrats to just fall on their swords, "for the greater good of helping The Party"...)
