Speaker Nancy Pelosi celebrated her 80th birthday Thursday getting ready to shepherd the biggest economic bill in history through the U.S. House she leads. The Senate version of the $2 trillion coronavirus relief bill turned out to be 880 pages long, presumably a coincidence and not a tribute.

Eighty years ago, news of her birth, the daughter of a first-term Baltimore congressman, also made headlines in the local press. It was a time, though, that any thoughts of a political dynasty focused on her five older brothers, not on the only girl in the family.

“It’s a Girl for the D’Alesandro’s,” The Baltimore News-Post headline declared over a four-column photo at the top of the front page that showed the swaddled newborn only hours after she was born at the city’s St. Joseph Hospital. 

Pelosi urges Trump to tap emergency war powers immediately

  Pelosi urges Trump to tap emergency war powers immediately Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on President Trump to use emergency war powers he invoked just a day earlier to immediately press industry to accelerate production of medical supplies."Right now, shortages of critical medical and personal protective equipment are harming our ability to fight the coronavirus epidemic, endangering frontline workers and making it harder to care for those who fall ill," Pelosi said in a statement.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation , conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

The Baltimore Sun took a more political tilt: “Tommy D’Alesandro Announces Another Sure Vote -- It’s a Girl.” 

The Baltimore Guide offered a prediction that in retrospect seems practically prescient. “D’Alesandro Will Find New Boss in First Daughter,” it said, adding, “We predict that this little lady will soon be a ‘Queen’ in her own right.”

In Baltimore during those days, just about everybody knew the D'Alesandros. Tommy D’Alesandro Jr. was an up-and-coming pol, dapper and charismatic. At 36, he had already served two terms in the state legislature and a stint on the Baltimore City Council, then been elected to Congress. He represented Maryland’s Third District, which included Little Italy and other ethnic enclaves across the city.

Thomas Massie, a Kentucky Republican, a "dangerous nuisance" for insisting on a roll-call vote before the House of Representatives passed the relief bill. "You were seen talking to him on the House floor before he raised his objection today. Can I just ask you what you said to him and what your view is on what he did today?" Maddow asked.

He won the U.S. House seat by ousting a six-term incumbent, Vincent Palmisano, in the Democratic primary. Years earlier, Palmisano, a political leader who lived around the corner, had taken an instant dislike to the younger man when he wanted to run for Maryland House of Delegates. Later, it would be D’Alesandro who ended Palmisano’s career.

That would provide one of the political lessons that Nancy D’Alesandro Pelosi never forgot. “Power’s not anything that anybody gives away,” she would declare. “You have to fight for it.” It was a precept that her father had followed in challenging Palmisano. It was advice she regularly gave Democrats contemplating tough contests.
