Congratulations, Madame Speaker

Yet another reason why I need to move to San Francisco: I want to be represented by the first woman Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi!

Growing up in Speaker Tom Foley‘s district (5th in Washington), I remember well when he lost to George Nethercutt in 1994 and the Republications took over the House of Representatives.

Needless to say, I am very happy that the Democrats are taking back control of the House again after twelve years. And here I am just a few miles from the new speaker’s district, contemplating how quickly I can move into it. Maybe I’ll do make the move during the first 100 hours in January. Let’s add that to the to-do list!
