70-year-old Nancy Pelosi, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives is seeking to retain her control over the Democratic Party in the House by being elected Minority Leader.  Pelosi was the first woman to ever hold the position of Speaker of the House.

Pelosi’s bid is being met with some resistance by members of her own party.  Some feel she serves as a symbol of all that contributed to the Democratic Party losing control us the House in last Tuesday’s election.  Republicans were voted into office in record numbers.  Pelosi wants to make sure Republicans do not undo her health care legislation.

Pelosi said she will run for Minority Leader if she feels she has the votes necessary to be elected.
