Politics is the art of […]

Nancy Pelosi vs. The GOP: A pregnant woman is not afraid if you threaten her with what you made her pregnant with.

Nancy Pelosi, Madam Speaker of the House, is the woman behind the success of the health insurance reform bill. She deserves a lot of credit for being so clever — for using a ruse with her political opponents and for leaving those watching the vote in suspense.
