Pelosi rushes to greet new grandchild

WASHINGTON (CNN) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ducked out of a press conference on the economy Friday after learning her daughter Alexandra had gone into labor, her office tells CNN.

The California Democrat is headed to New York City for the birth. The new arrival - reportedly a boy - will be Pelosi's seventh grandchild, and Alexandra's second child.

    In other congressional news, Dems got some very bad news today as their top two recruits in the Kentucky Senate race now appear likely to NOT run against Mitch McConnell next year. Very unexpected and major blow for Dems. Full analysis here.

    Your source is Campaign Diaries? Holy crap. Next you'll be citing Dana the spokes house liar as a credible source.

    According to the Washington Post, Pelosi knew in 2002 that Bush was authorizing waterboarding. And she approved of it.

    When you hold your newborn grandson, Ms. Pelosi, imagine someone waterboarding him. Is that what you stand for?

    I am disgusted with you, and will now campaign hard for Cindy Sheehan.

    Ms. Pelosi should stop for a moment and consider what the future will hold for her grandchildren, if she doesn't make some big moves while she has the chance. I've heard murmurs lately that Dems in the House are discussing a change in leadership...if the last 10+ months are indicative of all she's got, then perhaps we are due.
