congratulations speaker pelosi and new democratic house of representatives

Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California is expected to be elected the first ever female Speaker of the House in history on the heels of the Democratic Party gaining control of the United States House of Representatives. The Democrats have confiscated Congress from the Republicans, holding on to every single incumbent seat and earning a greater majority than the Republicans won in 2004. "Tonight is a great victory for the American people," Pelosi said. Pundits agree that this year's midterm election was a referendum on Iraq, the culture of corruption and Republicans turning a blind eye to concerns such as health care and education.
