Nancy Pelosi is beautiful! I could see her having Irish, Iberian, British, Scandinavian, and North African ancestry down the line :)

John Beohner made the right decision leaving. She should do the right think and leave as well!

Nancy Pelosi should run for President as a Republican.

That would be interesting. Weren’t Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, and I believe Jimmy Carter Republicans or at least Republican supporters at one point in their lives?

I highly doubt that Carter was.

Yea you’re right. Clinton I found out was a supporter of Goldwater in 1964.
