The Marble Ceiling is Broken

History was made yesterday with Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s election as Speaker of the House; the first woman Speaker in the history of the USA. This wonderful news, coupled with the Democrats taking control of both houses of Congress, also highlights how much work there is to be done. And how much work needs to be undone.

And if this is any indication of what President Bush continues to believe he can get away with (searching any piece of mail in exigent circumstances, whatever that means), then Congress will have its hands full just maintaining oversight.
