(Newser) – Nancy Pelosi is again dropping cryptic hints about some apparent dirt she has on Newt Gingrich. Asked by CNN's John King yesterday about the prospect of him becoming president, she said flatly: "He's not going to be president of the United States. That's not going to happen. Let me just make my prediction and stand by it. It isn't going to happen." Why so sure? "There is something I know," she said, according to the Huffington Post. "The Republicans, if they choose to nominate him, that's their prerogative. I don't even think that's going to happen."

So what's the dirt? We still don't know, and it's the second time Pelosi has said something along these lines in an interview. On the Today show this morning, Gingrich said Pelosi "lives in a San Francisco environment of strange fantasies and strange understandings of reality," notes Politico. "I have no idea what’s in Nancy Pelosi’s head. If she knows something, spit it out. Tell us what it is. I have no idea what she’s talking about." Mitt Romney would be interested to know, too, notes the Hill.
