Speaker Pelosi's command and control

The Philadelphia Inquirer today published a puff piece by columnist Marianne Means of Hearst Newspapers about Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi is proving she’s up to the job. It is truly insulting to see Pelosi referred to as a "left" leaning politician. What a load of propaganda.
