    The vast majority of Americans couldn't pick Nancy Pelosi out of a lineup. What matters to most people is their own local representation -- who's going to pick up that phone when they call to get help from Washington. I have no idea who the Speaker of the House was in 1970, but we knew that we had someone whose office went to bat for us with the VA when my mom wanted to get my dad in to the local VA hospital. It's only the real political junkies that think of things like House or Senate leadership.

    And Hoyer, for all we know, might be thinking of himself as the future Speaker.
