Pelosi on Obama and the Road to Health Reform: Never a 'Down Moment'

She doesn't usually disclose what she and President Obama say to each other, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi made an exception a few hours after a sweeping health reform bill had become the law of the land. When it cleared the House on Sunday night, "he said that he was happier after the vote than he was the night that he won the presidency," she said, and laughed. "I said, 'Well I'm pretty happy, but I'm not happier than the night you won the presidency -- because if you hadn't won the presidency we wouldn't be here.' "

Pelosi recounted the conversation to a group of columnists she had invited to her office Tuesday to discuss an achievement that, in Obama's words, enshrines in law "the core principle that everybody should have some basic security when it comes to their health care." Even as she spoke, the Republican Party was calling for "No More Madam Speaker" in an online ad that showed her surrounded by flames (a really terrible photo of her, too, I might add). But Madam Speaker, relaxed and euphoric in the afterglow of victory, described as "lower than a nano-something" the amount of interest she has in Republican "vilification" of her.

That happened to me the other night.. I put a new member's name in quotes and someone knee

jerked the alert button and the jury hid it 5-2.. and it was a Bernie Sanders supporter by the name of "Bernie Blower".. who sadly has since been demoted to "name removed".

Was it my fault he registered on DU with that name?.. I think not. lol

The first clue was probably his username.. they let just anybody in? rofl

and shockingly enough.. he turned out to be a troll!


You can post it as many times as you want, Bonobo.. Not the first time a duer has brought up my

posts from the 2008 primary on Hillary.

I tell you what I said to them..

Yes I was pissed at her. I just think she's learned a lot since Mark Penn was running her campaign.. And, the IWR vote.. Things change.. people learn and grow or they're stagnant.

I have too.. wow, I was out of control!

I started liking her after she graciously conceded at the Dem Convention and then after President Obama appointed her as SOS.. she did a brilliant job. They put aside their differences and came together for the country and so did I. I can certainly change how I feel about people over the years. This isn't the first time.
