[Ed. – She should ask Hillary Clinton about the wisdom of ‘guaranteeing’ a win.]
An exuberantly confident House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Tuesday evening that Democrats will take back the House of Representatives next week and told CBS’s Stephen Colbert that she is “very, very proud” to be called a “San Francisco liberal.”
“Well, let me say this. Up until today, I would have said ‘if the election were held today, we would win,” Pelosi said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. When Colbert asked her “what happened today that changed that,” Pelosi continued, “What I’m now saying is, ‘We will win! We will win! We will win!’”
“We will win. We own the ground,” Pelosi giddily continued. “We’re not yielding one grain of sand.”

When Colbert asked her about Republicans using her as a “cudgel”and “caricature” while criticizing her left-wing San Francisco values, Pelosi embraced the label.
“San Francisco liberal is something that I am very, very proud of,” Pelosi said. “I don’t mind them criticizing me but I do mind them criticizing my city—the city of St. Francis.”
