Pelosi tweets she's running for Democratic leader

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who will lose her position as speaker of the House when the new Republican majority takes over in January, used her Twitter account Friday to announce she will seek to continue to lead the Democratic caucus.

"Driven by the urgency of creating jobs & protecting #hcr, #wsr, Social Security & Medicare, I am running for Dem Leader," Pelosi tweeted. The abbreviations stand for health care and Wall Street reform.

    So many of you against a good decent lady like Pelosi. Shame on all of you, including Dr. Bad!

      The words "good," "decent" and "lady" do not apply to Pelosi.

    What will it take for this woman and the democrat party to take the hint? I am glad to see her run. Who in their right mind in her party is going to support her? Democrats are going to have to move more to the right and that's going to leave her looking more extreme left wing than ever.

    The announcement came in a one-sentence statement from msnbc TV President Phil Griffin: “I became aware of Keith's political contributions late last night. Mindful of NBC News policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay.”

      Why are you yelling? And do you even know that it means when you put quotes around a word? Apparently not. You are probably typical of a Pelosi supporter, though.

    • Yeah right!

      Pelosi is a skinny, dried, nut whose hull belongs on the floor of the nearest peanut gallery...a pelosi rerun would not only be a disservice but a torture.

    when it was found out nancy pelsosi knew about and was in on tyhe tortures, she jummped on a plane and flew to Iraq for a diversion.
    when she got there, One of MY Troops Snapped and Shot 5 of HIs Buddies.
    clinton and pelosi are as guilty as bush and cheney.
    you are just idiots.
