San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi is the most powerful woman in American politics, but she has consistently been underestimated. That's according to Time magazine's Molly Ball in her new biography, "Pelosi". Ball tells the story of a politically-polarizing and effective leader who hadn't run for office until age 47. We'll talk with Ball about the congresswoman's life and career as well as her handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
