In an exclusive interview on “This Week with Christiane Amanpour,” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., struck a confident tone on the electoral prospects for Democrats this November, despite predictions by many, including at least one top White House official, that Democrats could lose control of the House.
“I’m not nervous at all,” Pelosi said. “I never take anything for granted. And our agenda now is … we’re not going back to the failed policies of the Bush administration. We’re going forward,” she said.
“So what does it make you feel then, when the president’s own spokesman said that you might lose the majority?” Amanpour asked her.
