(CNN) -- One of the more interesting stories of this election is that several congressional Democrats are actively campaigning against Nancy Pelosi as House speaker.

This is quite amazing. Let's go back to 1994 -- does anyone remember a single Democrat saying they opposed Tom Foley as speaker? Now Foley was voted out in his home state -- which was itself pretty rare, but one does not recall Foley as an intra-Democratic problem.

When one sees a political ad with President Obama this year, it is more likely to be a Republican ad than a Democratic one. When one sees a political ad with Pelosi, it is more likely to be a Republican ad than a Democratic one. That's what we were seeing up until about a month ago; now we are seeing Democratic ads with Pelosi in them -- opposing her. Quite a dynamic.
