U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, in India last Friday.
Some of the very few words that filtered through my consciousness while in bed that day:
If freedom-loving people throughout the world do not speak out against China’s oppression in China and Tibet, we have lost all moral authority to speak on behalf of human rights anywhere in the world.
The situation in Tibet is a challenge to the conscience of the world.
And from today’s news,
WASHINGTON, March 24 (UPI) — Keep your eye on the prize is the message House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is preaching about party in-fighting over the Democratic presidential nominee.
“We have to keep our eyes on the prize, which is the general election in November,” Pelosi said last week. “We are all very passionate about our politics but we have to be very dispassionate about how we approach winning.”
Is she the only sane Democrat at this point? Or the only one thinking about not handing over the whole shebang to John McCain on a platter? Because I’d rather not think in multiples of 4,000. I wonder if there’s any chance she’s planning to be in Denver in August, though I suppose she could always hop a plane at the last minute. At the very least, Nancy Pelosi is the only one I want to vote for right now.
Here’s a teeny tiny idea: Draft Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi in ’08. Just thinking out loud…
