I had an interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Seattle yesterday. She was there for a fundraiser, to make a video for Congressional candidate Darcy Burner and to visit the Seattle VA hospital.
Pelosi and Burner talked with me at the Fairmont Hotel and we covered a lot of ground. My story isn’t on the homepage this afternoon, but you can find it here.
MORE: Linda Jansen, a Seattle reader, saw this morning's story and sent this e-mail:
You forgot to mention that Cindy Sheehan is running against Pelosi. She was the power center that kept the Dems from cutting off the funding for the war in Iraq, which you so blithely quote her as saying requires better management. How about the fact we never should have gone there and need to GET OUT!
Since Sheehan was just here in town and you are a political reporter, I'm assuming you knew about Sheehan's challenge. Shouldn't you include the above info about Sheehan, just to have the appearance of fairness?
I'm going down to SF to help Cindy get rid of Pelosi. We've got to get these Congress people to respond to the will of the people or this whole place is going down.
