If Obama decides to go all in on military strikes on Syria with the current polling numbers, it won’t be an issue, either:
NJ It’s become something of a pastime in D.C. for people to feel bad for Speaker John Boehner for having an unwieldy caucus. Do you feel for him?
PELOSI I don’t comment on their caucus, their leadership, or the rest of it. He’s the speaker of the House. I respect the job. The position that he holds is a very exalted one. I wish his members would respect his position as much as I do. But if the purpose of your call is for me to get in sniping at the Republicans on how they do their business, I will talk about how it affects the American people.
NJ Do you want to be speaker again?
PELOSI No, that’s not my thing. I did that.
It’s not likely to become an issue, not in a second-term midterm election, and not after the botched ObamaCare rollout. But if we are supposed to believe that Pelosi isn’t interested in regaining the gavel, then why did she fight so hard to remain Minority Leader in the last two sessions after losing the gavel in the first place?
