WASHINGTON (AP) – California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, a liberal
lawmaker with 15 years in Congress, moved to the brink of victory Friday in the
battle for House Democratic party leader, driving her most formidable rival from
the race and pocketing his endorsement.
Nancy Pelosi will bring out-of-touch San Francisco and Berkeley
sensibilities to the minority leadership in Congress. I don’t think the GOP
could have found a better leader for the DNC.
