Speaker Pelosi said on the House floor:
Now we must boldly move into the future, based on the principles that have taken us this far and open to what is possible for the future.
Scripture teaches us that there is a time for everything, a time for every purpose under heaven. My friends, no matter what I tell you, all my colleagues have given me, Speaker Leader Whipp, no greater official honor than to stand on this floor and speak for the people of San Francisco.
I will continue to do so as a Member of the House of Representatives, speaking for the people of San Francisco, serving the great State of California and defending our Constitution, and with great faith in our group, I will not seek re-election to the Democratic leadership next year endeavor congress. For me, the hours are coming for a new generation to lead the Democratic Group, which I respect so much, and I am grateful that so many are ready and willing to take on this great responsibility.
Nancy Pelosi is the greatest modern speaker of the House of Representatives in US history. She is one of the greatest public speakers in the nation’s history.
Pelosi’s decision to remain in Congress but not serve in the leadership is the best outcome of all worlds for Democrats. Speaker Pelosi will continue to be available to advise the new generation of Democratic House leaders and nobody is better at holding the faction together, but the Democrats will also have a new generation of leaders to lead the House faction into the future .
America should honor one of its greatest leaders in history.
This is a day to celebrate the storied achievements of Nancy Pelosi.
