Pelosi: Democrats ready to lead 08/11/2006 - 17:39:25
Set to become the US' first female speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi says Democrats are "ready to lead" in partnership with Republicans, "not in partisanship".
President George Bush called Pelosi with congratulations this morning after Democrats took firm control of the House, rebounding after a dozen years in the minority.
Pelosi, 66, who made history four years ago when she became the first woman to lead a party caucus in either house of Congress, will become third in line of succession to the president when she is elevated to the speaker's position at the beginning of the new Congress in January.
It will be the highest elective office ever reached by a woman in the US.
Pelosi will be formally re-elected as her party's leader, and its nominee to be speaker, when the Democratic caucus meets on November 16 to choose its standard-bearers for the next Congress.
Democrats, Pelosi said, "intend to lead the most honest, the most open and the most ethical Congress in history".

Why can't I stop laughing?
It's official. Hasn't even been sworn in and she's screwed herself already. There is a scandal in just about every Congress. As soon as a single Dem slips...
I'm sure the first person on their "list" is the Democrat congressman who stuffed $60K in his freezer.
Is she Hillary's kind of girl?
So when does the woman get sworn in as speaker?
Translation: We have the mainstream media in our pocket. 1st order of business - Pelosi memo to MSM: Its only a scandal if it involves a republican.
When I heard her say that I was dumbfounded.
She's not stupid. She is telling all of us to watch out while hypnotizing her followers.
"intend to lead the most honest, the most open and the most ethical Congress in history"
She'll be rueing that statement inside of a year.
BJ and co-wierdo went in promising the most ethical administration and left with the furniture and the silverware, not to mention the vandalism.
Laughing, I feel more like hurling!
Oh yeh..the San Francisco values Mom raising the bar for ethical standards. I smell stank.
That would be nice. She can start by taking out the trash on her side of the aisle.
Does it include the trips she took herself?
"most ethical Congress in history"
Yeah, those SanFransisco values are really something...
.....not to mention the impeachment of Honest Bill...post Waco.
Let's start with William Jefferson and his 90K in ice cold cash. Then go after Harry Reid who pocketed profits from vegas property he didn't even own.
