Wait, who exactly is saying this about Nancy Pelosi? I mean, no one ever disputed that she is "powerful." Clearly, as Speaker of the House, she is literally the 3rd most powerful in the US, right behind the VP. But everyone has known this for a long time.
or the fact that she is 70 and still looks 40 (and is powerful)
I am impressed as hell that she has five children.
I didn't know that her father and brother were Baltimore mayors. Again, more impressive as she does not carry their name and crossed the country to start her life with her husband. I can't imagine people in San Francisco cared about her stellar Baltimore connections. This is what George H W Bush claimed to do by moving to Texas, but he kept that family money and infuence ties.
Is it just base misogyny, or is there some more interesting story to this I'm missing?
