Meet Alexandra Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi’s daughter. Alexandra was born on October 5, 1970 in San Francisco, California. Her parents are Paul and Nancy Pelosi (U.S. Speaker of the House), the youngest of five children. After graduating from Loyola Marymount University she went on to graduate school at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication.

While she grew up in a family very involved in politics, it was no surprise that Alexandra would be involved in some fashion. She went on to become a journalist, documentary filmmaker, and a writer. She is mostly known for her 2002 documentary “Journeys With George,” that takes a look at then-Gov. George W. Bush and road to the presidency.

About the possibility of her hopping aboard the political train she tells a source, “I’m too old for the campaign bus. I got so tired of being pushed and pulled behind rope lines. And you know that if you’re being pushed, … nothing you’re filming is real.”

“I don’t think, in this day and age, anybody can get an honest campaign document. In this day, with YouTube and Handycams, everybody is so on guard. I can’t believe you can ever get an honest moment in a campaign. I don’t even know why people bother to cover the campaigns. “Journeys with George” was made before technology made candidates (and just about everyone else) so fearful. It showed a personal side of Bush that the public didn’t usually get to see, and which campaign aides today would most likely want to suppress.”

So basically she is done with what she once had a passion for. What do you think Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, throwing in the towel? Leave your comments in the section below.
