House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told CNN in an interview airing Monday that she's "not counting Joe Biden out" following the former vice president's disappointing finishes in the Iowa and New Hampshire Democratic primaries.

What she's saying: "There are still races ahead that are much more representative of the country," Pelosi told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in an interview in Munich, Germany, Saturday.

She said she only decided to do so after she read the speech and found its content "terrible."
