Highlight from Full Program

KING:  All right, not on the past, but let's look to the future.  You make your case, there, passionately for President Obama.  But you also understand, it's a tough reelection climate for any president, Democrat or Republican, in this economy.

Because of your history with Speaker Gingrich, what goes through your mind when you think about the possibility, which is more real today than it was a week or a month ago, that he would be the Republican nominee and that you could come back here next January or next February with a President Gingrich?

PELOSI:  Let me just say this.  That will never happen.

KING:  Why?

PELOSI:  He's not going to be president of the United States.  This is - that's not going to happen.  Let me just make my prediction and stand by it.  It isn't going to happen.

KING:  Why are you so sure?

PELOSI:  There's something I know.  The Republicans, if they choose to nominate him, that's the prerogative.  I don't even think that's going to happen.
