Past and Present House Speakers

Much is going on in the world of politics after the mid-term elections. Speaker Pelosi
will be stepping down from the Speakers post and will most likely be followed by
John Boehner. You might think that these two people have nothing in common but let’s
take a look at their birth orders. Nancy Pelosi was the youngest of six children in her family. Although I have been unable to find all their dates of birth with a family that size
I would guess they were all just a few years apart. This makes Nancy a second level #2
birth order. The traits of this birth order shows someone that does not like to be told what to do. When confronted they will not back down but would be a master at getting others to support their position. Support is the word as a number two is not likely to tell someone but convince them of their position. Guess we could see that in the passing of the Obama health care plan.
John Boehner is a second born with an older brother. An athlete playing football he comes from a family of twelve and really had to try harder to get where he is today. Like Nancy Pelosi he will not be one to back down on his agenda and will convince his colleagues into supporting his position. We have changed parties but not the intensity of the political process.
