Nancy Pelosi is confident in her party’s chances to win in 2018 and retake the House of Representatives. Maybe a little too confident. She even claims that Democrats are already winning.
She said all this during an interview with the New York Times political podcast.
Here’s a transcript via Real Clear Politics:
PELOSI: One of the reasons I stayed here is because I thought Hillary Clinton would win, we’d have a woman president and so there would be a woman not at a seat at the table, but at the head of the table for the world…
We wanted to have a woman president. But when we didn’t, then I couldn’t walk away and say, O.K., just let all the men have the seats at the table that are making decisions for our country…
We didn’t win the elections, but we’ve won every fight. We’ve won every fight on the omnibus spending bill — you know the appropriations bills and the rest. You look at everything, they have no victories!

We’ll see if Nancy is right. Most people who work in political media think she’s wrong. One thing is sure. Democrats have learned nothing from the 2016 election. They haven’t even accepted the results!
