I remember a speech by Nancy Pelosi… and Nancy Pelosi obviously is someone who is very polarizing and I certainly have mixed feelings about her over the years. But I remember just getting a sense… of her being so different from what she is described. In that moment you really got a sense of her before she was the Speaker or the Minority Leader or what have you, when she was just a really passionate policymaker who wanted to make a difference. I remember just thinking that it was so refreshing and so cool to see her in this different light and get out of this politico-like Twitter-sphere understanding of her as this politician, and really see her as someone who was a public servant and is in this business, I would think, for a lot of the right reasons.
