Jake Tapper interviews House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi. He addresses her prediction that Hillary Clinton will ultimately garner the Democratic Presidential nomination. Pelosi admits that she still strongly supports Hillary, but at the same time, she has her own political responsibilities. She laments the obstruction she faces constantly in the GOP-majority House of Representatives.

Tapper mentions that Secretary Clinton doesn't believe that it is possible to win the House as well as the White House in 2016, but the Senate is a definite possibility. Pelosi recalls 2005 when it seemed very unlikely that the Democrats would regain both Houses of Congress, but it did happen. The California Democrat believes that we are 2/3 of the way there to a successful 2016 for Congressional Democrats.

Finally, she explains to Tapper that it would be good to have more debates for Democrats, even though we've yet to have one. More Democratic debates would show voters not only a more civil debate setting, but the clear difference of a group of candidates that are concerned with 'how we go forward.' Obviously, the topics that the GOP seems to focus on are not important to most Americans. Pelosi sees the writing on the wall: Democrats align more closely with the real issues that concern real Americans.

The GOP is obsessed with fearmongering over some crazy border wall, falsely perpetuating a lie regarding Planned Parenthood and repealing 'Obamacare,' the Iran Deal and other effective achievements from this administration. When it boils down to it, the American people will vote with their intellect, which favors Democratic candidates who seem to address real issues and present real solutions. Let's hope so, anyway.
