Pelosi running for Dem leader...

(CNN) - Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday she will run for minority leader, even as some moderate and conservative Democrats have said she should step aside.

Pelosi made the announcement on Twitter: "Driven by the urgency of creating jobs & protecting #hcr, #wsr, Social Security & Medicare, I am running for Dem Leader."

Hooray for her! Glad she's taking her job seriously, and didn't pull a Palin.

  • I personally greatly admire Pelosi, and I hope she'll stick to it. Even though I know she'll get a boatload of grief over this.

  • Damn. I was hoping she'd just quit. San Fransisco is so screwed up, politically, having someone from that city in charge of anything is SCARY!
