There is a complete set of playing card (52) along with two Jokers. Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi is a Democrat, first elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1987. Representative Phillip Burton died in 1983. His wife Sala became the Representative. In 1987, a short time after she had taken the oath of office, following her re-election, she died of cancer. Sala had indicated that she wanted Nancy Pelosi to be her successor. Pelosi won the special election and took the oath of office in June of 1987. From 2003-2007 Pelosi was the House Minority Leader. She then became the first woman, the first Italian American and the first Californian ever to hold the office of Speaker of the House of Representatives. As such, she is second in the line of presidential succession after the Vice President. This makes her (presently) the highest ranking woman in American politics.
