( - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is not among the majority of Americans who give President Biden low marks for the job he is doing as president. In fact, according to Pelosi, Biden is "just perfect."

Speaking at a Democratic National Committee holiday celebration Tuesday night -- with Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in attendance -- Pelosi simply gushed:

It's wonderful to be here with all of you, to celebrate the holidays and the historic progress Democrats are forging for the people -- under the leadership of the great president of the United States, Joe Biden. And Vice President Kamala Harris," Pelosi began.

She praised her Democrat caucus, for "understanding our why. Our why is to lift up all American families and to be able to just fight in every zip code, and (DNC Chairman) Jamie Harrison is leading the way on that.

And Mr. President, it is an honor and, of course, a pleasure to be here at this time of challenge -- and with the coronavirus, the national insecurity for families, natural disasters.

Our country could not be more -- it could not be better served, than with this most experienced, capable hands than yours, President Biden. He's just perfect! The timing couldn't be better.

And Madam Vice President, we're inspired by your work for the people as you continue to be a valuable partner to President Biden.

Pelosi told the crowd she would be brief, because "we have three bills on the floor tonight," including one to lift the debt ceiling (so Congress can keep spending). "I thank the president for his leadership in that regard," Pelosi said.

Pelosi brought up the 2020 midterm election, calling it "a historic time for our country."

"It's not just about policy, it's not about politics, it's about patriotism. It's about our country. It's about our democracy being on the line. And that we have to work very hard -- I've said to members, are you all making a decision to win the election? ("Yeah," the crowd shouted. "Yeah," they shouted a second time, cued by Pelosi to say it much louder.)

"If so, we have to make every decision in favor of winning the save our democracy."

Pelosi again praised President Biden for orchestrating the bipartisan infrastructure bill, "which is great," she said. "But what he said, too, was, I did not confine my vision for America to only what is in that bill. We must Build Back Better..."
