It's all about the lighting, Nancy. Take it from a former actress.

Oh this isn't about camera angles, it's about marketing angles! Gotcha.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi - who will lead the minority, not the majority, in the new Congress - is reportedly turning to another Californian for advice on how to improve the image of her and her colleagues: Filmmaker Steven Spielberg.

Included in a story on Pelosi in the Washington Post yesterday that got a little bit lost amid the activity around the busy last day of Congress was news that lawmakers say Pelosi is now "consulting marketing experts about building a stronger brand. The most prominent of her new whisperers is Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director whose films have been works of branding genius..."

So what do you think, can the Dems can get nominated for Best Reinvention of a Political Party?

UPDATE: Spielberg denies he's advising Pelosi.

    "The most prominent of her new whisperers is Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director whose films have been works of branding genius…”

    Countdown until the rightwingers decry this as yet another example of "librul Hollywood attempting to impose their permissive values on the rest of us": 5 . . . 4 . . . 3 . . . 2 . . .

    About time! We have the right policies, we fight fairly yet we get our asses kicked over and over in the positioning wars. Dems MUST figure out how to better position their policies so that the disinterested voters can hear and understand just why Dems are better for the country, and for the voters personally.

    EXCELLENT. They need the PR. They have been getting run over by the right wing media and Frank Luntz talking points.

    Yes! About time the Dems start fighting fire with fire.
