Apparently, San Francisco's Nancy Pelosi has reached that point. The important point here is that she refused to retract or even soften her condemnation of Bush. I especially like the part at the end of the article when she wards off her critics in advance:
"His activities, his decisions, the results of his actions are what undermines his leadership, not my statement," Pelosi said. "My statements are just a statement of fact."I realize that Pelosi has often been harshed on in Bay Area circles for "selling out" to the Democratic machine. But, goddamn, she sure seems to be keeping it real to someone living amid Promise Keepers.
