The New Class of 2007

Welcome the incoming new members of Congress.

No more Senators Rick Santorum, Mike DeWine, Jim Talent, Conrad Burns and hopefully, George "Macacawitz" Allen.

No more Congresswoman Katherine Harris.

And incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi (I like how that rolls on my tongue), who is the first female majority leader in the 271-year history of Congress, announced her immediate agenda for the first 100 days the Democrats take control:

Pelosi has said that in the first 100 hours of her speakership she will push for action implementing all 9/11 Commission recommendations on national security, raising the minimum wage to $7.25. eliminating corporate subsidies for oil companies, allowing the government to negotiate Medicare drug prices, imposing new restrictions on lobbyists, cutting interest rates on college loans and supporting embryonic stem-cell research.
A new sheriff is in town.
