PELOSI: "I don’t see this as a political issue. This is something remarkable that has happened in our country. And I’m so glad that at long last Time magazine has placed some women as Women of the Year. It’s the first time I think they’ve ever had a Woman of the Year. It’s multiple, but nonetheless it’s great. Our country, because of the courage of these women, has crossed the Rubicon. Alea iacta est, the die is cast. We’re in a whole new place on all of this, and it’s pretty exciting. And so, so many of the women have come forward, some of them currently with complaints, others telling us about what happened to them when they were young, when they were ignored or they were afraid to come forward and the rest, and they are fighting for justice for women today and as we go into the future. So this is a new day, something to be excited about. Sad in many respects. But, yes, we are pleased with the way we expeditiously dealt with our issue. I don’t see it as a political issue, though. I see it as a community, I hope that people will all come together on it."
