First, listening to this sounds like a bizarre statement. However, Pelosi is speaking to her members. Pelosi is essentially saying look we could (the leadership) write a platform but, how about those complainers and others have a meeting to put a plan together. With as many Democrat legislators calling for her to step down this could be a step in the right direction for her to maintain control.
During the interview, Pelosi also touched on the recent healthcare bill issued by Republicans and said:
