Donna Edwards: ‘Anybody Who Wants To Be Speaker Needs to Start Taking a Lesson from Nancy Pelosi’

‘Nancy Pelosi was not handed the leadership, she worked for it’


EDWARDS: “Nancy Pelosi was not handed the leadership, she worked for it. And so somebody in that caucus is going to have to step up and begin demonstrating that they are working for it, too. Because it doesn't come as a freebie. I mean, it's a really big job. And the fact that Marcia Fudge actually stepped back is a recognition that, you know, the fund-raising, the organizing, the legislating, the strategizing, being a tactician, and all of those things are necessary for the next leader. I think that members who want -- that anybody who wants to be speaker needs to start taking a lesson from Nancy Pelosi."
