Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) may not be the speaker of the House anymore, but on Thursday Ellen DeGeneres presented her with a gavel that's much bigger -- and more sparkled -- than John Boehner's.

After her appearance on DeGeneres's show, Pelosi tweeted, ".@TheEllenShow gave me a bedazzled gavel with fabulous advice-it says "Laugh.Dance.Lead" on it: http://pic.twitter.com/oyOKhM7h."
