Soon-to-be former Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi is in need of a "stronger brand," so, naturally, she's soliciting branding advice from director Steven Spielberg. (Lesson No. 1: "Don't chase the little kid and the alien.")

Update: A spokesperson for Spielberg is denying the Washington Post story: "I can say as a long-time spokesman for Steven that he has made it his career to direct actors, not political figures."
