Who’s up for the Nancy Pelosi Comedy Tour?
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she “prays” Hillary Rodham Clinton will run for president.
Pelosi, D-Calif., speaking in Little Rock about current affairs in American politics, said she had no inside information about whether Clinton will run. But, she said, she considers Clinton the most qualified potential nominee.
“I pray that Hillary Clinton decides to run for president of the United States,” Pelosi said, drawing loud applause from the crowd of several hundred at the Robinson Center. “… Nobody has been first lady and senator and now secretary of state. Putting everything aside that she is a woman, she’d be the best qualified person that we’ve seen [in recent years].”
Pelosi said Clinton getting elected would be “such a lift for our country” and the world.
“Think of the message it sends to women in the world,” she said. “The most powerful figure in the world is a woman, and she also happens to be the most qualified for the job.”
Most qualified? Based on what? Can anyone name a significant accomplishment? Other than being a doormat for her sleazebag husband, what has she accomplished?
