Nancy Pelosi, partisan warrior in denial

Dana Milbank writes in The Washington Post:

“I do not believe what happened the other night is a wave,” the former speaker informed Politico’s Lauren French and John Bresnahan this week. She preferred to describe what happened in the House elections as “an ebb tide.”

The drubbing and the denial have naturally raised doubts about whether Pelosi should remain on the job. But her interpretation was the opposite. “Quite frankly, if we would have won, I would have thought about leaving,” Pelosi told Politico. But because of the, er, ebb, she needs to stay — a classic argument for rewarding failure.
