Today, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi joins the ranks of OZY guest editors like Karl Rove, Speaker Paul Ryan and Jeff Bridges to share the news that’s most on her mind. A lifelong politico, the Trinity College alum became the first woman to serve as U.S. House Speaker — the highest political office to be held by an American woman.
