Washington, Nov.22 : US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi has chided John McCain for invoking her name in attacking Barack Obama on the campaign trail.
"It was a compliment in some ways to have him use me. I mean, it was really almost bankrupt that he would have to resort to something - most people don't even know who I am," Pelosi told reporters during her weekly press conference on Friday.
"My daughter, who was covering McCain on the campaign trail, she said, 'Mother, you should hear the boos you get when your name is announced,'" Pelosi added, speaking of her daughter Alexandra, who was filming a documentary on the campaign for HBO.
Pelosi joked that McCain "had very complimentary things to say about me" and insisted that no bad blood remains between the two.
Pelosi, though, threw in a dig at her GOP rivals, saying that it is easier to forgive after a winning year.
