Pelosi Backs Minnick: ‘It’s Not About Me’

When I asked her about Rep. Walt Minnick of Idaho, who told CNN that he hasn't yet decided if he would back Pelosi as speaker, her response was instantaneous. "Go for it," she said. "Just win your election. I just want them to win. It's their election. It's not about me"/via Dennis Mansfield. More here.

Question: What do you make of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's pragmaticism re: backing Congressman Walt Minnick, who may not back her as speaker next year, if he wins re-election?
