A CNN panel talks about the political viability of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday night's broadcast of Anderson Cooper 360.
PAUL BEGALA, DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST: If there was a Mt. Rushmore for speakers, Nancy Pelosi would be on it. She passed national health care. Even Franklin Roosevelt could not do that.
She is unpopular. Her negative is 50 percent. Quinnipiac poll. Excuse me, Paul Ryan's is 54 percent, OK? Democrats need to put their big boy pants on, and go after the doggone Republicans and instead of taking incoming.
General Patton said the purpose of war is not to die for your country. It's to make the other SOB die for his country. So, I want to put the Republicans on trial instead of just letting them attack Nancy Pelosi without any defense.
