Pelosi: For Women, “The Sky is the Limit”January 5, 2007
from the transcript of Pelosi’s speech:
It’s an historic moment for the Congress. It’s an historic moment for the women of America.
It is a moment for which we have waited over 200 years. Never losing faith, we waited through the many years of struggle to achieve our rights.
But women weren’t just waiting; women were working. Never losing faith, we worked to redeem the promise of America, that all men and women are created equal.
For our daughters and our granddaughters today we have broken the marble ceiling.
For our daughters and our granddaughters now the sky is the limit. Anything is possible for them.
How many people in America find that concept to be disturbing – even frightening?
How many of those people consider themselves Democrats?
