Everybody Knows Nancy Pelosi

Hideously low approval ratings of the Congress she controls notwithstanding, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's name is well known. So are her words.

Pelosi was the subject of Tuesday night's "Final Jeopardy" category on the "Jeopardy" game show. Each of the three contestants submitted a correct answer (in the form of a question!) about something Pelosi said last January when she was sworn in as the first ever female speaker of the House.

This is giving Pelosi aides something to cheer about during this Memorial Day week recess on Capitol Hill. Pelosi's communications director, Brendan Daly, sent the following email to his staff this morning:

For those who missed it, last night's Final Jeopardy category was "Notable Women" and the answer was: "On Jan. 4, 2007 she said, 'For our daughters and our granddaughters, today we have broken the marble ceiling.'"

All three contestants properly guessed, "Who is Nancy Pelosi?"

My 9-year-old daughter was watching with her grandparents and called me breathlessly while my wife and I were out for our anniversary dinner. She was especially glad to report that all three contestants (two men and one woman) knew the answer.
