Nancy Pelosi mixes talk of Iraq, chocolates in chat with Leno

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi mixed tough talk on politics and sweet talk on chocolates during an appearance Thursday on NBC’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

How does the California Democrat stay slim, when she adores chocolate and digs into ice cream whenever she can? Leno wanted to know.

“I chose the right parents,” Pelosi said. “My Italian-American heritage gives me all this energy to work it off.”

The nation’s first woman House speaker steered away from questions about the 2008 presidential race and spoke cautiously about her relationship with President Bush.

“I respect the office he holds, and I respect him,” she said.

She signaled she had no plans to back down on differences over war funding and foreign policy. Bush “wants a blank check on the war,” she said.

She also defended her recent trip to Damascus, Syria, and said her decision to wear a scarf over her head as she entered a historic mosque was in keeping with tradition.

Leno asked whether she had thought about running for higher office.

“No, I like speaker of the House,” Pelosi said. “I think there are people who want to do that, and I wish them all well.”

Leno did corner her when he revealed he’d spotted 25 chocolates in her dressing room.

Fumbling her words, Pelosi didn’t deny it.

“I didn’t, well … at what time was that?” she asked, admitting she eats chocolate ice cream nearly every day.

“Women … now they hate you,” Leno quipped.
