Speaker Pelosi Rules Out White House Run

Friday, 23 April 2010 07:51 AM EDT

Democratic U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the first woman to hold the powerful post, ruled out Thursday any future plans to run for the White House.

At a press conference with reporters and children on "Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day," Pelosi had been asked whether she would ever run for president given her years of political experience.

"No. I love the job that I have," said the speaker, who is behind only Vice President Joe Biden in the U.S. order of succession.

"I believe that one of the reasons that I do it with the success that I have is that my members know that I am here for them, for the House of Representatives, and I'm not thinking of another career path for myself," she said.

"But I'm very proud to be the Speaker of the House. It is a great honor, especially being the first woman," said the California lawmaker.
