Are you crying? There's no crying in politics!

Nancy Pelosi: No crying in politics



House Speaker Nancy Pelosi believes there's no crying in politics – even though that's not a policy embraced by her future successor John Boehner.

In an interview in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, Pelosi was asked to comment on Boehner's election night victory when he shed tears over the Republicans' historic sweep of the House.

Pelosi's response? Not so empathetic.

“You know what? He is known to cry. He cries sometimes when we’re having a debate on bills,” Pelosi said.

“If I cry, it’s about the personal loss of a friend or something like that. But when it comes to politics – no, I don’t cry,” she added. “I would never think of crying about any loss of an office, because that’s always a possibility, and if you’re professional, then you deal with it professionally."

Boehner, selected this week by his caucus to be the next speaker, openly has wept on multiple occasions in the House chamber, most notably when discussing the Iraq war.
