'They,' Madam Speaker, Are We the People by Dan Riehl 21 Oct 2010 post a comment Share This: Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, Democrat, blinked into her crystal ball and predicted the Republicans will pick-up only 15 House seats in November. A skeptical Charlie Rose reminded her of what "they" say. But Speaker Pelosi doesn't seem to know, or appreciate, who "they" are, in this case. "They," Madam Speaker are "we the people." And we will have our say on November 2nd. CHARLIE ROSE: Why do you believe that when the numbers look -- I mean, 95 House races are in play, they say. NANCY PELOSI: Well, who are "they"?
