My Lunch with Nancy Pelosi
Written by John Zipperer at 2:52 PM
Okay, I didn't eat lunch with the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, but I did spend my lunch hour today attending an event at The Commonwealth Club of California. Pelosi was in her hometown to discuss a number of national initiatives, especially the recent passage of the landmark health-care reform bill. In the video clip above, she responds to a question about the stabilization of the U.S. economy.
I should note that Speaker Pelosi also happens to be my U.S. representative in Congress, so it was a pleasure to get to see her in person. I had a prime seat in the third row, and as she exited the ballroom after the program, I got the opportunity to shake her hand.
Here's a photo I took right after the hand shake:
