When Grandma's in Charge,

You'd better look out. Nancy Pelosi, mother and grandmother, and therefore has absolute moral authority, may crack down on Democrats playing hooky from their committee meetings. I wondered if she wore less makeup on purpose in that 60 Minutes interview, so she could emphasize her grandmotherly mien. I never knew that she is 66 years old. She's a woman and probably has good genes, but I'm not sure I'll make it to 66. A few things did come through pretty clearly. She's obvious got a steely will and wants absolute control of her messages, and she hates the President. Her explanation that "We're both professionals," as a reason why he shouldn't take a offense as being called criminal, incompetent, not a leader, inept and dishonest doesn't really wash. I wouldn't be warm and fuzzy after that, especially when, in the same breath, she promises greater civility when she's the Speaker. Today, Bush gave her a signal that her idea of professional behavior is different from his.
