Nancy Pelosi: THIS is leadership?

From new House speaker Nancy Pelosi:
"We have waited over 200 years for this time to come," Mrs. Pelosi said on the eve of her selection as speaker, a position that makes her second in line to the presidency after Vice President Dick Cheney.

"We will not just break through a glass ceiling, we will break through a marble ceiling," she said. "In more than 200 years of history, there was an established pecking order -- and I cut in line."

After calling herself "the most powerful woman in America," Mrs. Pelosi flexed her right muscle like a weight lifter to much applause at an event yesterday titled a "women's tea."

"All right, let's hear it for the power," she screamed as the jubilant applause continued.

"...Let's hear it for the power"?

Calling herself "the most powerful woman in America"?

I can't imagine any of the Founders talking like this.

Gerald Ford certainly would have never talked like this. This kind of thinking probably never even entered his mind.

Elected officials who are this blatant about love of power are... well, dangerous.

Have you read the book SCREWED by Thom Hartmann? Just curious; I think you would get a lot out of it.

No but now that you recommended it I certainly shall :-)

In light of this statement, I think you'll find this quote from newly elected N.C. congressman Heath Shuler refreshing.

"The Democrats are not the reason I'm here. The votes of the people of the 11th District is why we're here."
