I know I probably shouldn’t, but I almost pity Nancy Pelosi.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said today she has “no regrets” one day after a Republican landslide stripped her of the power that defined her historic tenure as the first female speaker of the House.
The California Democrat, who won a new two-year term in Tuesday’s election, said she has yet to consider what she will do now.
“I’ll have a conversation with my caucus, I’ll have a conversation with my family, and pray over it, and decide how to go forward,” she said in an exclusive ABC News interview with “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer. “But today isn’t that day.”
I’m going to guess that today was the day for a lot of hard drinking and rocking in the corner in a fetal position. The regrets will come after that conversation with her caucus, many of whom won’t be back in January. I imagine that will give most of them a far looser tongue than they’ve had for the past two years. Oh to be a fly on that wall.
