House Democratic Leaders: Let's Talk Baseball

October 2, 2012
It's October now, and the House Democratic leadership is ready to talk some baseball.

At least that was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's tongue-in-cheek reply to a reporter on Tuesday who asked what she thought of a Pennsylvania judge's move to block the state's voter I.D. law and what her Electoral College predictions for the presidential race are.

"I thought you were going to ask me about baseball," she said. Obliging, a reporter pointed out that the Nationals could end up playing the San Francisco Giants. Pelosi, who represents San Francisco in the House but whose father was one-time mayor of Baltimore, was more concerned with another team that wears orange and black.

"The Nationals play the Giants? What about the Orioles?" Pelosi asked.

Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer chimed in that there could be a "Parkway Series" if the Nationals and Orioles make it to the World Series.

"You're talking about the Parkway," Pelosi said. "I'm talking about the orange-and-black series of the Giants and the Orioles."

Reminded of the question about the Pennsylvania voter I.D. law, Pelosi had a one-word answer.

"Hallelujah," she said.
