As Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives, there is one word that the media are continuing to use as they cover the proceedings.
Nancy Pelosi makes history today as the first woman Speaker of the House and the second woman Speaker of the House.

And as we know.
@GOPLeader hands the gavel to Nancy Pelosi. She is making history yet again.
Important to note that Nancy Pelosi is the highest ranking woman in the U.S. government and she is the only woman who has risen this high.

When the media start hitting a theme.
Pelosi, still the only female speaker in US history: "I am particularly proud to be the woman Speaker of the House of this Congress, which marks 100 years of women winning the right to vote, as we serve with more than 100 women in the House of Representatives." Highest in history

Correction: An earlier version of this story mistakenly said Nancy Pelosi was the second person in history to reclaim the speaker's gavel after losing it.

They are eager to help you understand that history was made today.
If you had taken a drink every time the word "history" has been said on MSNBC today, you would be hospitalized.
