Nancy Pelosi: 'Everybody Knows' Mitt Romney Won't Become President

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) doesn't have a doubt in her mind that President Barack Obama will be reelected in November. And she claims she's not alone.

"Oh, Mitt Romney's not going to be president of the United States," Pelosi said with a laugh, during an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union." "I think everybody knows that."

Pelosi wouldn't respond to a question about whether she would work well with a President Romney. But she did reminisce about the days of bipartisanship in Washington, back when she was House Speaker and former President George W. Bush was in the White House.

"We had our differences. We fought. But we also found common ground," Pelosi said. "There are so many places where we came together."
