Two icons of the Democratic Party back when both were still alive.
"Nancy Pelosi and President Kennedy at his inauguration ball 50 years ago today. Adorable."
This was two years before she married and took her husband Paul's name, so, at this point, the 20-year-old Nancy Pelosi was still Nancy D'Alesandro. She most likely got into this event because her father Thomas J. D'Alesandro, Jr. — a former U.S. congressperson, former mayor of Baltimore and delegate to the Democratic National Convention — was a pretty big wheel down at the cracker factory.
By the way, get used to the phrase "50 years ago today" because you're gonna hear it about every three days from now on, as we head into the 50 year anniversary of everything that happened in the '60s.
