    anyone see this?
    "Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have sent a letter to President Bush saying "surging forces" in Iraq is a failed strategy and calling for phased redeployment instead."

    I think, really, that reading this is the first time since the 2006 elections that I truly felt hopeful. It is day TWO!! And look at what they are doing? This bull, the one with horns? It just got grabbed. On day 2.

    No, that's not true. When I got home from a long day last night, and Beloved told me of Nancy Pelosi bringing all the children up onto the podium with her, I felt hope.

    I told Beloved then, and then have commented elsewhere since - that I will take this opportunity to be sexist and say that what she did -- including these children in her day, in her ceremony - it is what I hope having women involved in high-level politics will bring to our country. Not just an awareness of the Congress. Of the 500 and whatever people in that room and the power that they wield and the money they play with. Instead, an awareness of EVERYBODY, that everybody can be considered in all decisions. That everyone's needs, desires, abilities, etc., will be in the forefront of our government's mind while they're making their decisions.
