Gavel to Gavel Blogging
Nancy Pelosi made history as the first woman (and, let us not forget, first Italian-American) to become speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Now she is making history again, as the first speaker with a blog, titled The Gavel. The blog has been up for several weeks, but Pelosi officially launched it this week with -- what else -- a YouTube video.
"The Gavel," Pelosi says in the video, "will provide an unprecedented forum, in real time, on how the people's House is conducting the people's business." The speaker is no stranger to blogging. She has contributed in the past to The Huffington Post.
