Is Nancy Pelosi planning on stepping aside as House Minority Leader to make way for some younger, fresh talent, brimming with Berniecrat and Warrentastic pedigree? Not any time soon, folks. She’s being hit with the question on a regular basis, particularly after the Democrats’ spectacular failure to take back the House in 2016. So why not get out of the way of the young turks?
The latest excuse is that she needs to make sure there’s a woman “at the table” (both literally and figuratively) what with Hillary Clinton being regrettably unemployed at the moment. (Associated Press)
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Friday she must retain her leadership position in Congress so there is a woman at the table when key decisions are made…
Pelosi said in an interview on ABC’s “The View” that she was ready to leave had Hillary Clinton become president, putting a woman at the top. But Clinton lost, and so she must remain, Pelosi said, as she recounted a White House dinner last month where she was the only woman at the table.
