Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday she will seek the minority leader job again this year.

That means the House leadership will remain the same, with John Boehner as majority leader and Pelosi in the highest-ranking Democratic slot.

Many had called for her to step down.

Giving Pelosi her props as a politician, strategist and fundraiser - not to mention history maker as the first woman to serve as speaker - Chris Cillizza and Aaron Blake of the Washington Post write today that it’s time for new leadership.

Pelosi, 72, led the House from 2007 until 2011, after Republicans gained a whopping 63 seats.
