    All the more reason why Nancy shouldn't be the minority leader. I'm very surprised she kept the House leadership post after the last election, and I'm sure her intra-party detractors just gained the upper hand.

    There should be NO such things as private ethic panels in government. If it's a negative and the panel decided to do nothing about it, they failed in their duty and should be gone anyway.

    Second, I think its kind of sad and a picture of our political climate that we have a person who clearly seems to believe they have significant evidence that would suggest someone wouldn't be worthy of being President enough to make people vote against him, and yet rather than release said information she's holding onto it for nothing but politcal gamesmenship to attempt to use it not to further the best election process but to further her own parties agenda. Information she likely largely gathered due to her service at the behest of the people as a Representitive in the House. If she's got some big damaging information on Newt she should release it now for the benefit of the American People rather than using information gleamed from her time in public office as a means of political strategy focused on the betterment of the party, not America.
    Yep. Of course this would cause others to release what they know about her and well, win/win for the country.

    Re: Nancy Pelosi threatens to reveal dirt on Newt Gingrich 'when the time is right'

    From the article:
    Many of the bills Gingrich and Pelosi co-sponsored were hardly divisive: authorizing an award for Mother Teresa, giving a congressional gold medal to former President Gerald Ford and recognizing the 50th anniversary of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

    But one piece of legislation could be problematic for Gingrich with conservatives: the Global Warming Prevention Act of 1989, which never made it out of committee.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Re: Nancy Pelosi threatens to reveal dirt on Newt Gingrich 'when the time is right'

    Yeah, the backtracking was likely due to a reminder that she cannot just disclose any of this so called dirt on him. Plus, when the time is right? um... if anyone has information that can be legally... sticky word for most politicians these days, but information that people should know about, then now is always the time. She took the low road on this one, forgot about ethics and made herself look all the more cheap for doing so. Oh, and it is public knowledge that Gingrich broke ethics rules, which is why he lost the speakership and eventually resigned. How sad it is thathe is now leading the GOP field because he is the only one who has any clue how things work, and occasionally speaks conservative. I am going to have a hard time voting for him if he wins the nomination. I would have to see how the campaign plays out. If Romney wins I am definetly going 3rd party.

    It does point out hypocrisy, though, doesn't it?

    Re: Nancy Pelosi threatens to reveal dirt on Newt Gingrich 'when the time is right'

    Newt bitching about how the ethics investigation was confidential seems like a tacit admission that he hasn't come clean and Pelosi DOES have some dirt on him. I don't think she should break any rules or violate his confidentiality if she agreed to protect it...but a better question is why hasn't Newt himself released whatever he's worried about Pelosi releasing.
