House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blew off warnings from Hillary Clinton backers Thursday, refusing to acknowledge their veiled threat.
The source is interesting. The Daily News is very much a New York paper. They respect strength in a politician, and that's clearly what they were recognizing here. The headline says it all:
Nancy Pelosi unafraid of Clinton backers' warnings on superdelegates
Some people tried to play hardball with the Speaker of the House, and she played hardball right back, because she is, after all, Speaker of the House. And a NY tabloid gave her props for it, so she earned a bit of street cred in the process. Good job, Nancy!
