Washington Post Writers Group (WPWG) columnist Marie Cocco obtained a post-2006-election interview, for the current issue of Ms. Magazine, with new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Unlike some journalists, Cocco focuses on Pelosi’s political abilities rather than on what she wears. In the article, the WPWG commentator compares Pelosi to Tip O’Neill, calling her “a natural heir to that rumpled old Irish pol.”
Cocco first wrote about Pelosi in early 2002, after she was elected House Democratic whip.
