House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke to CNN this week about the Democrats’ chances of regaining control of the House of Representatives. “We have been saying there are three important issues in this campaign and, in alphabetical order, they are Medicare, Medicare and Medicare,” she told State of the Union‘s Candy Crowley.

Pelosi answered Crowley’s hypothetical question about the Republicans retaining control of the House along with a victory for President Obama in November with a warning. “It’s really important for the public to know that the obstruction of President Obama — and President Obama’s jobs bills and whatever he was advancing — their obstruction is their agenda.”

And when asked whether she could work with Mitt Romney if he were elected, Pelosi replied, “Mitt Romney is not going President of the United States.” Laughing, she added, “Everybody knows that, right?”
