On Thursday morning, soon-to-be former U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) convened the U.S. House, where she announced, “I will not seek reelection to Democratic leadership in the next Congress. For me the hour’s come for a new generation to lead the Democratic caucus.”

She claimed the people “rejected” “insurrection” while claiming they defended “democracy” during this election.

According to the Associated Press, “The speaker took home two versions of her speech overnight for review” before making the announcement.

The news also comes after an altercation between her husband, Paul Pelosi, and another man that left the speaker’s husband in the hospital after an attack by a hammer, it further complicated Nancy Pelosi’s plans.

The AP noted that ambitious younger Democrats are vying to move past the octogenarian House leadership:

Pelosi’s leadership team, with Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland and Democratic Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina, has long moved as a triumvirate. Hoyer and Clyburn are also making decisions about their futures.

All now in their 80s, the three House Democratic leaders have faced restless colleagues eager for them to step aside and allow a new generation to take charge.

Democrats Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York, Rep. Katherine Clark of Massachusetts and Rep. Pete Aguilar of California have similarly moved as a trio at times, all working toward leadership roles themselves.

She did very well for a vindictive senile coot with moderate dementia.

The most important event in her speech, which the liberal media will ignore, is what she said about her accomplishments.
She bragged about working with three presidents in her time as Speaker. The accomplishments we all could do without.
They were the usual country destroying green projects and huge economy destroying spending.

But after opening her speech in fulsome praise of our country as one people working together, she told about those three presidents she worked with,

George W. Bush, applause,
Barak Obama, long, long, standing ovation,

and then smiling,

Joe Biden, applause.

But let’s do act as one nation one people.

Reading your article helped me a lot and I agree with you. But I still have some doubts, can you clarify for me? I’ll keep an eye out for your answers.
