President Pelosi?

Officials: Hastert "In the Mix" of Congressional Bribery Investigation: Federal officials say the Congressional bribery investigation now includes Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, [DB: Wait! I though this was a bipartsian scandal?!] based on information from convicted lobbyists who are now cooperating with the government.

Part of the investigation involves a letter Hastert wrote three years ago, urging the Secretary of the Interior to block a casino on an Indian reservation that would have competed with other tribes.

The other tribes were represented by convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff who reportedly has provided details of his dealings with Hastert as part of his plea agreement with the government.

Wow, so that means if we take back the House, it will be President Pelosi once the scandals swallow Bush and Cheney. President Pelosi! (Yes, that gives pause, even to me, but it's hard to see how a nice liberal from San Francsico wouldn't be a huge improvment over the Boy Blunder.)
