Last week the former House Speaker urged endangered Democrats (their number grows daily) to do anything to avoid being seen in public at the Democratic Convention.
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi says that Democratic members should stay home and campaign in their districts rather than go to the party’s national convention in North Carolina.
“I’m not encouraging anyone to go to the convention, having nothing to do with anything except I think they should stay home, campaign in their districts, use their financial and political resources to help them win their election,” Pelosi said in an exclusive interview for POLITICO Live’s On Congress, a new weekly show to be streamed live on POLITICO’s website and broadcast on NewsChannel 8 on Wednesdays.
So I guess today since there’ll be plenty of empty seats, Pelosi has decided to auction off a trip to see this mess.
In 2004, an Illinois Senator named Barack Obama stepped onto the stage at the Democratic National Convention and gave a speech that spoke to the heart of what it means to be an American. In 2008, his words inspired a nation to choose a new path forward.
In 2012, you could be there.
