THE SPEAKER --- Political photography is a lot about depicting relationships. Who is the person in power, who is the second-most powerful and so on. Here, there was no question. Nancy Pelosi was pretty much assured of re-election and of becoming Speaker of the House and I wanted to make her status clear in my photograph. She was stumping for candidate Phil Angelides and her appearance at a phone bank was a boost for the underdog candidate.
