I'm not the biggest Nancy Pelosi fan around -- and I'm certainly not a charter member of the fan club like my colleague Gene Robinson -- but I think there's something impressive in her decision not to fade away...

Nancy Pelosi: House minority leader

The Tweet from @SpeakerPelosi was simple and to-the-point: "Driven by the urgency of creating jobs & protecting #hcr, #wsr, Social Security & Medicare, I am running for Dem Leader." In short, Speaker Nancy Pelosi isn't going anywhere. She's not...
