Nancy’s coming in late on this and frankly she looks a little silly giving the abandon ship order after the lifeboats have already been filling up for some time now.

From Politico:

“I’m not encouraging anyone to go to the convention, having nothing to do with anything except I think they should stay home, campaign in their districts, use their financial and political resources to help them win their election,” Pelosi said in an exclusive interview for POLITICO Live’s “On Congress,” a new weekly show to be streamed live on POLITICO’s website and broadcast on NewsChannel 8 on Wednesdays.

The California Democrat suggested that since Barack Obama is an incumbent, there is less of a need for Democrats to attend the convention.

“We nominated a president last time. We have an incumbent president of the United States. We’re very proud of him. There certainly will be enough people there to express that pride, but I’m not encouraging members to go to the convention no matter what the situation was, because they can be home. It’s campaign time. It’s the first week in September,” she said.

In other words, Pelosi’s message to her fellow Dems is “you have to skip it to find out what’s in it for you.”

None of this will be enough to win Pelosi the speakership again, but, just in case, she’s been practicing her gavel dance.
