Impresses me, anyway. I wasn't there.
" "It's always exciting,'' she told reporters after the meeting. "This is democracy in action. I'm energized by it, frankly." "
Even though I don't agree with Ms Pelosi's views, I can appreciate the political skill and can understand the rush it would give her to be able to handle a crowd of Lesser and Greater Moonbats. Can Hillary do the same to win the primaries without giving soundbites that can be used against her in the campaign? Well, we'll find out. I don't especially want to think about that right now, though. Too many other issues to sort through in the next two years.
Like the attempt to send Zawahiri to his virgins the other day:
"At minimum, the [American] officials said they believed that other senior Qaeda officials had died in the attack."...from the New York Times.
Most of the reports I've read indicate there had been foreigners in the area. One specifically said that even though Zawahiri didn't attend the Eid feast, he had sent some of his associates. (Can't find the link)
The Times is playing down any possible danger to Musharraf's regime because of this incident. I think they're right. Musharraf is a skilled politician for whom I have a lot of respect. Yes, Mark, I do.
My feeling is the angrier the protests, the more likelihood Zawahiri was zapped.

And I won't touch Iran. Think of bin laden as head of a huge country about to get nukes. Add in delusions of bringing the 12th Imam. Now try to get some sleep.
