Pelosi Ready to Retire?

Alexandra Pelosi
Well, my Christmas brightened a little this week when a rumor broke that Nancy Pelosi, the Dragon Lady of the liberal sect, has expressed a desire to retire. It may very well be nothing more than a rumor, but it's a nice thought just the same.

It started when Alexandra Pelosi, who knows her mother well, was quoted saying that her mother is ready to leave Congress but her donors won't let her.

"She would retire right now, if the donors she has didn’t want her to stay so badly," the younger Pelosi said in a phone interview with the website Big Government. "They know she wants to leave, though. They think she's destined for the wilderness. She has very few days left."

Don't get too excited though because a spokesman for Pelosi said that the former Speaker's daughter doesn't know what she is talking about.

The San Francisco-based Minority Leader and champion for the extreme left, is 71-years-old and has created a legacy as being one of the more polarizing liberal leaders.

She became the first woman to act as the Speaker of the House and she thinks she may reclaim that seat if the Democrats are able to take the House back next year. If they don't (and right now it looks doubtful) then perhaps this is a way of starting the process of her bowing out.

Just for your info, Alexandra Pelosi, 41, is one of five children the politician has with her husband of 48 years. The younger Pelosi works as a television producer.

As I said, this is just one of those nice rumors that give us a warm fuzzy feeling every once in a while -but rumor or not, we can always hope and pray (but don't let the PC police know you're doing it).

Now a word about Mrs Pelosi from Jack Cafferty:

Live Long and Prosper....
