DescriptionHouse Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hit back on Thursday at speculation that her leadership position was in danger, saying that her following in the U.S. is "unsurpassed by anybody."

“I can take the heat and that’s why I stay in the kitchen,” Pelosi told the Associated Press. “I have a following in the country that’s unsurpassed by anybody, unless they’re running for president.”
