NBC News, By Michael O’Brien, November 13

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested she would make her future plans known on Wednesday morning on Capitol Hill.

Pelosi, the first woman to ever serve as speaker of the House, answered a question about her intention to remain as House minority leader by inviting reporters to gather for a press conference tomorrow morning.

“I’ll see you right here, 10 o’clock, tomorrow morning,” she said. That would allow her to first confer with fellow Democrats.

    Nancy Pelosi to stay on as House minority leader

    Washington Post, By Paul Kane, November 14

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will remain atop the Democratic caucus for at least two more years, extending her role as Congress’s most vocal liberal voice opposing the Republican agenda despite a second straight election in which her party failed to win back the majority.

    She said she felt compelled to remain in leadership as Congress and President Obama embark on an effort to resolve a fiscal crisis that could jeopardize core government programs. And she vowed to work to limit the role of money in politics and to empower women in the workplace and the political arena.

    “Being active in politics at this level is really insatiable,” Pelosi, 72, said, recounting a conversation she had with her brother explaining why she wants to stay on. “What I said to him was, ‘There’s not enough hours in the day for me. There’s so much more I want to do.’ ”

    Technically, Pelosi must win a vote in leadership elections that are slated for after Thanksgiving in order to retain her position as head of the caucus. That victory is a certainty, according to Democrats.
