Op-Ed Columnist - The Age of Nancy -

(c) 2010 F. Bruce Abel

Normally Gail Collins is ironic but I believe she's serious about Nancy Pelosi, and this piece turns me favorable toward Pelosi.

Op-Ed Columnist - The Age of Nancy - "She has been around a long time and must have known that from the start. But she pushed anyway. Pelosi is an idealist working in the practical now. She genuinely sees her party as a vehicle for good and her pragmatism is not the least bit cynical. She is the most powerful woman in the country, the most fearless person on Capitol Hill and on track to be one of the most productive speakers in history.
I don’t know about you, but that kind of knocks me out."
