Nancy Pelosi: Most Powerful Woman in American History? (Video)

Diane Sawyer to Speaker Nancy Pelosi: "The Economist said that you are arguably the most powerful woman in American history. A Brown university professor has said you are certainly the most powerful Speaker in one hundred years." -- Nancy Pelosi's 70th birthday is Friday! If you are so inclined, join others in sending her roses (currently, it's up to 1,000 roses!).

All agree she gets credit for locking up this vote, one of the biggest since Medicare in the 1960s. And she's said to have done it with an epic blend of persuasion, muscle and will even when half the town said it couldn't be done.
