This is simply amazing:
Congratulations to Nancy Pelosi, the first woman elected Speaker of the House.
On a side note, I completely agree with mcjoan. The media has relatively ignored this story with very little mention made of how historic it truly is. Regardless of your political leanings, it means a great deal to finally have a woman as the Speaker and it should be a cause for celebration. I remember as a kid just how crazy it was when Sally Ride became the first American woman in space, yet Speaker Pelosi is not garnering half the attention. Leading one to wonder if it would kill the conservatives in this country to show a little class.
