Born in 1940 in Baltimore, Maryland, Mrs. Pelosi, now a San Francisco resident, is the most high-ranking women in the history of the country as the person third in command . An Italian-American, she is the youngest of Anunciata M. and politician Thomas D'Alesandro, Jr. Because of her father's political background, Ms. Pelosi grew up seeing and hearing politics, and therefore, she might have been given an advantage. After graduating from the Institute of Notre Dame, she received a B.A. in political science from Trinity Washington University in Washington D.C., where she met her husband, Paul Frank Pelosi. Together, they had five children and now live around the corner from Hillwood.
Some of the $1.7 million from President Obama's recent fundraising trip here in San Francisco may go to Nancy Pelosi, as well as to other democratic candidates, but mainly for Barbara Boxer.
Next week, we will be interviewing Tony Long, a Hillwood graduate from the 1960s. The topic will be interviewing techniques, which we will hopefully use with Nancy Pelosi.
