Even Nancy Knows Joe’s Gotta Go

This isn’t over.

That was the message Nancy Pelosi delivered subtly, but also loud and clear, in an appearance on Biden’s favorite news show on Wednesday. Refusing to directly endorse Biden’s continued candidacy, she instead pressed him to make a decision on his path that he publicly has already made. And she suggested he and Democrats hold off on considering the question until after this week’s NATO summit, which the White House has hoped will be a turning point for Democratic support.

“It’s up to the president to decide if he is going to run,” she said in a “Morning Joe” interview on MSNBC. “We’re all encouraging him to make that decision because time is running short.”

The comments came at a crucial moment in Congress, where Biden has struggled to fully stamp out public discontent over his nomination despite insisting in a letter on Monday that his decision to run was final and railing on MSNBC against “elites” who said otherwise.
