House gavel over to
Nancy Pelosi, a Democratic Representative
from California. With the passing of the gavel, she became the
first woman to hold the Speaker of the House position, as well
as the only woman to get that close the presidency. After the
Vice President, she was now second in line via the presidential
order of succession. Pelosi became Speaker again in 2018.
