An Historic Moment

Nancy Pelosi becomes the first woman to lead the United States' House of Representatives.

"This is an historic moment for the Congress, and for the women of this country," Pelosi declared after taking the gavel. "It is a moment for which we have waited more than 200 years .... For our daughters and granddaughters, now the sky is the limit."

I watched the replay of her opening speech on C-SPAN last night. The only thing I could think was, "God, those kids are going to break something." Children break everything they touch, including their parents' hopes and dreams.

I like Nancy Pelosi. Maybe her history of representing San Francsico will make her a bit more sensitive to gay issues. I can only hope.

Hahaha! I heard on NPR she asked all of the children to come up and touch her gavel. Sounded a little weird to me.

And I do hope she doesn't wuss out on gay issues, the war, ethics reform and education. We need some balls from the Dems and maybe a woman's got 'em.
