Nancy Pelosi is the shining example of why this country needs term limits for people elected to congress. A year or so ago, one of flight attendants who served on an official plane taking her back to California, described how much booze she made sure was on the plane and how much hard stuff she put away during the long flight.
Her public appearances give indications that she either drinks heavily to fortify her for her press conferences or she is showing the first signs of dementia. Either one, I would think, should alert her family that she is declining rapidly and to avoid embarrassment to her and the family, the Democratic party, and/or the government of the US, they should convince her to step down before she needs to be tucked away from public view in a home for the Terminally Unable to be in Public who need a safe place for the remainder of their days. And by the way, she is elected by and represents San Francisco but not much of the rest of CA.
