Heres something that HOH never expected to see: Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White together (well, in print).
The California Democrat and the mixed martial arts honcho are on Esquire magazines People Who Matter 2010 list, which appears in the publications February issue. Esquire depicts the Speaker as one tough cookie, describing her as the most powerful woman in the world who doesnt particularly need anyone to love her. ... She simply wants to win.
Several other political bigwigs are named to the list, too, including President Barack Obama, former/maybe future California Gov. Jerry Brown, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, the next Supreme Court justice (whomever that may be) and former Illinois Gov. Rod Balgojevich (the article features Blagos now-infamous Im blacker than Barack Obama quote).
Remixed Regrets. Theres sad news for Hill denizens who love the duds at Pennsylvania Avenue vintage shop the Remix and its bubbly owner, Stacey DiTata.
The shop is closing in February, local blog The Hill is Home is reporting, due to DiTatas diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.
Many a Hill staffer (as well as HOH) scored the perfect 1960s cocktail dress or rhinestone pin there, but more came just for DiTatas friendly presence.
