(CNN) - In her first interview since Democrats lost control of the House, outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended her leadership and was unapologetic.
"[I have] no regrets because we believe we did the right thing and worked very hard to convey that to the American people," Pelosi told ABC's Diane Sawyer on Wednesday.
When asked if she feels bruised given the election results, she said, "When I get time for that, I'll call you and let you know."
Pelosi expressed sadness over the losses dealt to her colleagues that will not return to Congress for another term saying, "it's never been about me."
She also said she has a "good rapport" with the likely new House Speaker, Ohio Rep. John Boehner.
The California Democrat and grandmother of eight declined to say what she would do next, but said she would pray and consult her family before she makes any decisions. She said she is grateful for her time as Speaker.
"I relish that, I treasure that, but it was in its time and in its place, and now it's time to move on."
