Congratulations to Nancy Pelosi who was just reelected Speaker of the House. A mere six votes (216 Pelosi to 2019 for Kevin McCarthy) secured her fourth speakership since Democrats first won the House in this century, 2006. She is beginning her 17th and likely last term in Congress and will be most remembered as the critical manager of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act and President Donald Trump’s impeachment.
