Hillary Clinton Praises Nancy Pelosi: ‘It Often Takes a Woman to Get the Job Done’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a shoutout in a video for a women’s conference that celebrated women’s achievement.

In a video for the MAKERS conference, Clinton spoke about accepting the women’s movement through not only politics but civic action.

“More than any other point in my life, women are coming together to tackle big problems are rewrite old rules and I am energized and encouraged by the diverse group of women everywhere that are speaking out,” she said. “Speaking out against inequality and bigotry and racism and homophobia and who are organizing to create change in their communities and our country, refusing to give in to cynicism or fear.”

Pelosi was the first woman in history to become speaker of the house. Clinton became the first woman in history to be nominated for president for a major political party in 2016. Since her loss to President Donald Trump, the number of women running for public office dramatically increased and resulted in the largest amount of women in Congress in United States history.

“You know, the title wave of women and young people running for office is helping to build an America that’s not only kinder, fairer, bigger-hearted, but safer, stronger and more secure,” Clinton continued. 

“And as Speaker Nancy Pelosi — doesn’t that sound great? — has proved yet again, it often takes a woman to get the job done.”

Clinton went on to state that pursuing equal rights for women and girls around the world is “the unfinished business of the 21st century.”

Pelosi and Clinton have long supported each other in their respective political careers. Pelosi was a firm advocate for the former secretary of state and first lady in the 2016 election.

Got the government reopened. The House passed the bill on Jan 3, 2019. McConnell refused to put the bill on the Senate floor for a vote until Trump gave him permission. On Jan 24th McConnell and many R Senators had enough of Trump’s stunt and issued an ultimatum. The following day the Senate passed the House bill with only a date change. Both the House and Senate bills had bipartisan support.

Didn’t she and chucky say open the government and then we’ll talk border security? Where is dims good faith effort to negotiate on border security instead of trying to push non-starters through? Why doesn’t she DO THAT?

Eh, part of me is just groaning and wishing they could just tone down the “We are women, hear us roar” type stuff.

The other part realizes that they are both so freaking old that they grew up in a time this wasn’t normal and is worth cheering for.

So be happy, but more importantly, get some work done to prove you’re there for a reason other than your gender.

Don’t you just love the down votes you get for being a liberal and, yet, being able to think on your own?

What really must hurt those down voters is that you make sense (for a lib) more often than not.

Often times I hope a comment such as yours is coming from a bot. But many times I realize that there are Americans that simply repeat the talking points without considering how silly they appear. Were the Clintons not investigated for over 4 yrs for a land deal that was cleared 5 months in? Was Obama not harassed for his BC despite proving both a long & short BC? Did Congress not investigate Benghazi for 8 yrs despite disproving the FOX conspiracies in the first year?
