Will people judge Hillary Clinton because of Nancy Pelosi's leadership style?

It makes sense that they probably will. In my mind, the two are linked because of their political party and positions of power. Even though I disagree ideologically with them, I'm excited that women are reaching these positions.

I hope that judgments about women in power can be withheld until enough women have reached these positions to make a legitimate judgment. It's a huge amount of pressure to be the first.

ADDED: I forgot to link to the article which made me think about this in the first place. It's a London Telegraph piece titled "Republicans plot to bring down Pelosi...and Clinton with her."
