House Minority Leader Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, weighed in Sunday on the debilitating website glitches surrounding the Obamacare rollout and on a possible 2016 presidential run by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Mrs. Pelosi, appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” still touted Obamacare despite the “unacceptable” glitches.

“As far as the Affordable Care Act, as I call it, the fact is, that yes, what has happened is unacceptable in terms of the glitches,” she said. “This has to be fixed, but what doesn’t have to be fixed is the fact that tens of millions of more people will have access to affordable, quality health care, that no longer having a pre-existing medical condition will bar you from getting affordable care.”

Mrs. Pelosi also said that if Mrs. Clinton does choose to run, she would win and would be “a great president.”

“Let me say, if Hillary Clinton does run, she’ll be one of the best-prepared people, and she will win, I believe, if she runs,” Mrs. Pelosi said, according to ABC. “She’ll be one of the best-prepared people to enter the White House in a long time.”

“She would be a great president. It would be a very thrilling thing for our country. She happens to be a woman, but she’s, first and foremost, extremely qualified,” Mrs. Pelosi added.
