"I don't agree that it's a good idea to impeach the president unless we have a real case against him," Pelsoi said, when asked by the Marin Independent Journal about the criticism during a reception that preceded her talk. "You can't impeach a president because you disagree with his policies. You have to have some high crimes and misdemeanors."

Regarding the effort to cut off spending for the war in Iraq, Pelosi said, "We just couldn't get the votes in the Senate. The House over and over again sent bills to end the war in a finite time and a date certain but couldn't get it past the 60 votes in the Senate. When we have a Democratic president, that will change."
