44. I believe she wore black intentionally the last time

to denote what a sober occasion it was. I'm sure it is no coincidence that she wore it again for Impeachment, the Sequel.

Love that dress by the way. She has great taste!

45. ah!

Probably.

I like to watch Nancy's fashion choices. Instead of getting a pout on, like the soon-to-be-gone head of another government branch, she has fun with masks. She has a color-coordinated mask for just about every outfit. If she takes the mask off, she pulls it down around her neck and it looks like a scarf. Again, coordinated. This cannot be chance.

She looks great in heels, but if I were in that spot? Sneakers. I'll be damned if I'd be tromping around that huge building in such shoes. And get around she does; the news media often shows her briskly walking the corridors to one place or another.

46. As time goes by,

I am more in awe of her all the time. I don't feel like she ever got the credit she deserved until recently. She's led an incredible life.

I agree about the heels. There's no way I could handle running about those hallways in heels. I gave up on heels a long time ago, much too hazardous for a klutz like me.

Did notice her doing the trump-see-what-I-signed show for all to see her signature on the Impeachment bill. She turned it around and showed us all it was official!

does with his executive orders. Maybe that is normal I don't know.

no way can the GOP in Senate fail to convict (unless they are complicit liars and traitors).

I vaguely remember something like that the first time around.

29. You're missing the point.

Nancy Pelosi wears colors. She doesn't wear black. The two times she has worn this black suit is for the impeachment. I'm pretty sure she wears it for funerals and other sad occasions, as well. Nancy Pelosi wore this suit because of the sadness she feels about what has happened to this country under Trump. I feel her pain. Although, we are all happy that this President has been impeached again, and will soon be gone, we are sad for our country. Sad, because of the traitors that still support him. Sad, because of the Congresspeople who abetted this attempted coup.

36. A lot of them wore black suits. Black for mourning, but also to project authority.

It is interesting though, that she wore the same one for both impeachments.

I know we all felt the fury at watching the armed mob storm our Capitol Building, hurting, killing, defacing, ransacking. And with reports of panic buttons being torn out days before the coup attempt, as well as the insurrectionists being aided by Republican members of Congress taking them on tours, texting Pelosi's location to them - it is no wonder that one Capitol Policeman committed suicide just a day after the ordeal. He couldn't bear what he saw - the desecration of what he loved and believed in.

I am so very furious at Trump for making all this happen, and at the hate-filled white nationalist thugs who make up his private MAGAT army. The soldiers now guarding the Capitol have live ammunition, did you know? They will defend our republic with lethal force. DC looks more like a third world country than the epicenter of world democracy. And TRUMP DID THIS.

Your rejoinder to this thread reminds me of the old Johnny Cash song, Man in Black. It has always been one of my favorites.

32. I recall this quite well. And last year she wore a certain broach which can partly be seen

the gavel is in the way of full view. A striking and special broach with a particular meaning or symbol I remember was remarked on last year, but no longer remember the specifics.

edit to say I see that it was a Mace Pin.. stunning really.

34. There is a mace associated with the House, or specifically the Speaker. Large thing, traditional...

...Nancy went to a jeweller and had a copy made into a brooch, which she wears when she’s presiding.

35. I'll have to google the meaning of mace in this context.

I recall it mentioned last year, but never got around to looking up the term in this context. It is really quite the striking against the gorgeous shade of Navy Blue (it looks to me). She wears everything so well, sort of classical.

39. Fascinating history...


Loved reading the history in the beginning of our country. My curiosity extended to the origin of the term which turns out to be French.

Etymology: Middle English mace "a heavy spiked club," from early French mace (same meaning); probably of Latin origin
1 : a heavy spiked club used as a weapon in the Middle Ages
2 : an ornamental staff carried as a symbol of authority



I was trying to get a handle on the connection between the herb mace and a weapon (before it became a symbol of authority)..

Now I realize the word mace originated in France, and it appears that the herb mace liquefied was used as a weapon possibly before the middle ages with the connection to the ornamented staff.

I wonder if the speakers Mace had been stolen, and if that's the explanation for why she wasn't wearing it in yesterday's impeachment.
