Pelosi Ready to Step In and End Race

Which is sort of par for the course of her; she's been threatening to end the War in Iraq even as US and Iraqi troops are pretty much ending it themselves, and now she threatens to end the Democratic presidential primary two or three weeks after even Hillary Clinton realized it was over.

illary Clinton has hinted that she is prepared to take her fight to fully seat Florida and Michigan all the way to the party's convention in late August, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says that's not going to happen.

In an interview with her hometown newspaper, the San Francisco Chronicle, the California Democrat said she is prepared to "step in" if the presidential race does not resolve itself by the end of next month.

"I will step in," Pelosi told the paper. "Because we cannot take this fight to the convention…It must be over before then."

Pelosi, who will serve as chair of the convention, has largely stayed on the sidelines during her party's prolonged primary race. But the House Speaker has said Democratic superdelegates should not overturn the pledged delegate winner, and has warned of irreparable harm if they do so.

Sounds like a quagmire to me.

Thanks to Aurvant.
