Like I need another reason to admire Nancy Pelosi?

Not only is the first woman to serve as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives doing what she said she would do (how refreshing for a politician of any stripe!), she’s also banned smoking in the legislators’ lobby directly off the House floor. (Though frankly, I’m kind of surprised this wasn’t already the case since smoking has been verboten in most federal buidings in the U.S. for a couple of years now.)

And you know what?  I don’t even care if the over-riding reason for doing it was to keep her couture from smelling like an ashtray.  I mean, do you have any idea how expensive it is to have an Armani suit dry-cleaned?!*

And while we’re on the subject of "follow-through", look what happened on The Hill today: House votes to increase minimum wage

*Neither do I, but I bet it’s ALOT!

Feed my ego!
