I like this platform – the Commonwealth Club – where significant Politicos, journalists, scholars and ‘significant others’ espouse their opinions, philosophies and observations in an unbridled and free-flowing quorum.
But it’s always good to realize at the same time, “if silence was golden, you couldn’t raise a dime.. because your brain is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime”.. Our great American Jazz Philosopher; Mose Allison.. 👀😒😳😊😀😋😎😆😜
When Nancy Pelosi first ran for political office at the age of 47, she wasn’t new to politics. From the time she spent helping her father while he served as the mayor of Baltimore, working for Jerry Brown’s presidential campaign or serving as the Democratic Party chair of California, she developed skills that would propel her to the peak of American politics. As the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, she is now the most powerful woman in the political history of the United States. In the first 100 days of the 116th Congress,
Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats have worked on their “for the people” agenda, passing legislation to clean up corruption and restore ethics to Washington, D.C., a bipartisan background checks bill, and what many Democrats call a landmark paycheck fairness bill. House Democrats are also pursuing a bipartisan infrastructure deal, looking at ways to expand and protect the right to vote, tackling climate change, and lowering health care costs and prescription drug prices for all Americans.
