FIRST WOMAN SPEAKER OF US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, 2007-2010
Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro Pelosi
As the first term of a female Speaker of the US House of Representatives comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to thank Mrs. Pelosi for her historic and bountiful service. I do so on behalf of all the American people who are quite appreciative. She has been courageous and indefatigable yet peppered with jokes and put-downs amid many kudos. We all know Speaker Pelosi, but, we don’t know ‘All About Nancy.’ We are comforted by Mrs. Pelosi’s election to be Minority Leader in the new Congress. We can expect a continued level of devotion to service in her new capacity. Thank you, Madame Speaker!
Here we see a smiling threesome at the State of the Union given in the House.
