Rep. Nancy Pelosi told the House Democratic Caucus this morning that she will stay House Minority Leader.
According to a Democratic aide, Leader Pelosi told members of her caucus, “They say a picture is worth a million words. Well, this picture is worth millions of aspirations of the American people. This new class makes our caucus historic. The first time in legislative history that a caucus will be a majority of women and minorities.” “The message is clear from the American people,” she continued, echoing remarks she delivered at a press conference yesterday. “They want us to work together to get things done. And that’s what these folks are here to do. Just like all of you.”
Pelosi also said that she felt compelled to remain in leadership as Congress and President Obama embark on an effort to resolve a fiscal crisis that could jeopardize core government programs. And she vowed to work to limit the role of money in politics and to empower women in the workplace and the political arena.
We’re very happy that Nancy Pelosi will remain House Minority Speaker.
After all she and Joe Biden are the only Democrats in D.C. with balls running the government.
