Interesting profile of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Politico:
“I’m not big on showing weakness. It’s not my thing…I don’t like to have predictable losses.”
As a control freak myself (does anyone like losses? Of any kind?), I love watching people struggle to define a tough woman who knows what she wants and fights hard to get it. Having interviewed a few female legislators, I know — as every journo does — that the behind-the-scenes story always has nuances that disappear into 15-second sound bites or tired cliches.
