The evening before the day of your triumph, and Nancy Pelosi spent – figuratively speaking – in the old country. The Italian Ambassador in Washington, had invited to a Feast, to Pelosis celebrate the upcoming election for speaker of the house of representatives.
After all, the Democrat, is sort of a country child: The parents of Pelosis father came from Abruzzo, and her mother was born in Italy. And as high as Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi climbed in American politics, never an Italian immigrant's daughter. A little of this gloss should fall to the Repubblica Italiana.
Nancy Pelosi grew up in politics. You came in 1940, the youngest of six siblings in Baltimore for the world. Her father, Thomas D'Alesandro, was a local politician in Maryland, he later sat for the Democrats in the U.S. house of representatives, after which he was mayor of Baltimore. The first Job of Nancy D'Alesandro after graduation was a job as an Intern in the U.S. Senate. In 1963, she married the wealthy businessman Paul Pelosi and moved with him to San Francisco. Since 1987, it represents a California constituency in the house of representatives.
the sole ruler in the chamber of the Parliament
And now: Speaker of the House. The title sounds unpretentious. In truth, however, the speaker of the house of representatives, de facto the sole ruler in the chamber of the Parliament, and is one of the three, the four most powerful people in American politics.
Pelosi may in the future control the entire work of the house of representatives, you can laws push and block, without their consent, will move not a lot in Washington. In the next two years, Pelosi will be the main opponent of President Donald Trump.

This confrontation is an essential difference compared to the period from 2007 to 2011, when the Democrats last had the majority in the house of representatives and Pelosi ever spokesperson. Because at that time, she worked with a party friend in the White house: President Barack Obama. Their task was to get him in voting majorities. Now, however, she's the leader of the resistance against Trump.
she knows every parliamentary Trick
And there can make Trump on something. Pelosi is steel in political struggles as hard as Weapons. She knows every parliamentary Trick and has all have enough experience to Trump outmaneuver. The current battle for the Federal budget and the money for the construction of Trumps border wall is probably only a foretaste of what will happen to the President.
However, Pelosi will need in your new office also consider. The democratic group, not in agreement, what course to steer the party hard to the left, or more moderately. Pelosis political views are predominantly left-liberal, which is why some conservative Democrats had tried to prevent you as a spokesperson. Keep the Californian multi-millionaire for a Salon, a Bolshevik who has no idea of the real America.

That may be so. However, Pelosi is just long enough in business to know that ideology and dogma can sometimes prevent legislative successes. In order to defend their newly-won majority in 2020, and maybe throw Trump out of office, not have to fight the Democrats, in their view, only the President, but also show that you can better govern the basis of a reasonable and social than he is.
That speaks against concrete opposition. At the same time, too much Flexibility could lead to a dispute with the guard, a young man left in the democratic faction, want to a lot of talk from the socialism, and immediate impeachment proceedings against Trump. You should expect that not only the Republicans Pelosis get hardness to be felt, but also recalcitrant Democrats. (Editorial Tamedia)
