Washington is agog, as they say, about a testy confrontation Wednesday between Nancy Pelosi and NBC correspondent Luke Russert. "Some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on [as House minority leader] prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and hurts the party in the long run," Russert said. "What's your response?" Pelosi's response was to accuse Russert of partisanship -- "Oh, you always ask that question, except to Mitch McConnell” -- and to point out that, unlike male colleagues who joined the House in their 30s, "I came to Congress when my youngest child, Alexandra, was a senior in high school, practically on her way to college.”  I'm not sure the latter response is really relevant to Russert's question.

WASHINGTON -- Nancy Pelosi, the liberal San Francisco congresswoman who became the first woman speaker of the House, will seek to remain the Democratic leader in the next Congress. Pelosi made the announcement Wednesday to a packed meeting of her caucus. "They say a picture is worth a million words. Well this picture is worth millions of aspirations of the American people," Pelosi told the gathering, according to a Democratic leadership aide in attendance at the closed meeting.

WASHINGTON -- The question that has been circulating for weeks, if not longer, is about to be answered: Will Nancy Pelosi seek another term as the Democratic leader of the House? The first female House speaker booked a Wednesday morning news conference, where she is expected to announce her decision. And with that, the speculation began anew. The nature of Pelosi's event, surrounded by the many newly elected women of the House, prompted two theories: Would this be a passing of the baton to a new era of female leaders?

LAREDO, Texas - At an intimate gathering in this border town, Nancy Pelosi was a whirlwind of urgency, a reminder of the force she once was as speaker of the House. Evening was falling, and this was the third stop in what would be a 12-hour day. On pointy heels in a pale cream-colored suit, the 72-year-old grandmother of nine showed no sign of exhaustion. "That's what we're talking about: Reigniting the American dream, building ladders of opportunity for people who work hard, play by the rules, take responsibility," she told Democratic donors at the historic La Posada Hotel.

WASHINGTON-- Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader, appeared on “The Daily Show”  on Sunday and coined a new term for Mitt Romney's shifting political positions - “Mittology” - as she campaigns for Democratic congressional candidates and President Obama. Her appearance was Pelosi's fifth on the show with Jon Stewart, and the latest in a string of high-profile appearances by the Democratic leader in her drive to retake the House majority this November. She also appeared Thursday evening on “The Charlie Rose Show.” Many political observers doubt Democrats will win the 25 seats needed to wrest the House majority from Republicans, but Pelosi dismissed Stewart's contention that it remains a tough climb.

WASHINGTON -- On this, her 25 th anniversary year in Congress, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco), has been feted from coast to coast - including a party with U2 singer Bono earlier this week - but the celebration arrived briefly Thursday on the House floor. The moment was both tender and awkward as House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) noted the milestone for the Californian, who had been the nation's first female speaker - until his party's election gains in 2010 booted her from the job. “The gentle-lady and I have differing political philosophies and we have had some real battles here on the floor,” Boehner said.

On a day of reckoning for his presidential campaign, Newt Gingrich was sharply challenged by a conservative Nashville radio host over his 2008 appearance on a love seat with Nancy Pelosi in a TV ad advocating U.S. action on climate change. It wasn't his alliance with Pelosi that set off the host, Ralph Bristol of Super Talk 99.7 WTN.  It was the fact that the ad was made for the Alliance for Climate Protection, an organization headed by former Vice President Al Gore, and that it directed viewers to a website operated by Gore . "It still sticks in my craw that you helped promote our arch nemesis Al Gore's global warming website in that 2008 commercial with Nancy Pelosi," Bristol told Gingrich, who conducted a series of radio interviews Tuesday morning from Georgia before appearing by satellite before the Washington, D.C., conference of AIPAC, the pro-Israel lobbying group.
