Nancy Pelosi, Health-Care Hero?

Saturday night politics:

It's looking like my congresswoman, Nancy Pelosi, is the muscle behind the health-care push. If we get some sort of health-care reform out of this government, it'll be to her credit.

Also, props to my mayor, Gavin Newsom, who was fantastic on the health-care issue last night on HBO's Bill Maher program. He was particularly strong in making the small businessman's case for health-care reform, drawing both on his restaurant business experience and on San Francisco's efforts to create universal health-care on a local level.

Sometimes, our politicians do deliver.
