Straight-thinking democrats* could say,
"...look, we were poorly led. We were told by Pelosi we had to pass it, to see what it was.
We need better leadership in our party, Pelosi should step down."
* straight-thinking democrats" was coined by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, who went on to win twice.
Terms like that would serve any candidate well, from the GOP side. IOW pay respect to Independents and Democrats, if they are "straight-thinking."
