STEPHANOPOULOS: But why not allow votes on all that? When you came in as Speaker you promised in your commitment book "A New Direction for America," let me show our viewers, you said that “Bills should generally come to the floor under a procedure that allows open, full, fair debate consisting of full amendment process that grants the Minority the right to offer its alternatives.” If they want to offer a drilling proposal, why can't they have a vote?
PELOSI: They'll have to use their imagination as to how they can get a vote and then they may get a vote.
Yes.....we may have to use our imagination. Truly....a moment of wisdom from the Speaker of the House.
It was a rare clip....seeing Stephanopoulos actually whack on a bigwig Democrat, and she really couldn't do much to defend herself or her position.
