Being Nancy Pelosi
Ed Schultz asked, "Is Nancy Pelosi LBJ in a skirt?" She is more like Frances Perkins, the first female Secretary of Labor known for her no-nonsense negotiation style, in a suit. Without her, LBJ would not have gotten Social Security, minimum wage and unemployment insurance passed. Do you think Schultz even knows who she is? I didn't appreciate the question. Pelosi is the first female Speaker of the House. She turns 70 this Friday. This woman, as a friend suggested, deserves a card.
